Dama Scout are a Glasgow/London trio who have a a captivating, loud and hypnotic way with themselves.
Sharply contrasting the serenity of the honeyed vocal and hazy guitar with crushing, fuzzy interludes of snarling guitars and harmonic modulations – their sound pushes and pulls the listener. Their debut single ‘Forget It’s Good’, was first to showcase a potential for spectacular opulence. At times everything is covered with a lovely blanket of reverb and fuzz, with only the honeyed, inviting vocals cutting through the hazy, frazzled psychedelic tones before harsh, snarling guitars awaken you from this dreamy state. The trio’s latest single ‘All in Too’ meanwhile, emphatically confirms their promise; albeit in a much more energetic, fiery and muscular fashion. Disjointed and contrasting, yet it all works so wonderfully well in tandem. A spectacular intro to a band that we shall hopefully be hearing a lot from in 2017, and beyond.
