Dumb are a Vancouver foursome who’s output to date has been nothing short of startling. Their intoxicating brand of post-punk noise wields a mighty power and it is a sound enhanced by dalliances with indie, punk, garage, post-punk and even occasional surf elements.
A fact abundantly clear from even a cursory glance at their back catalogue; Dumb have impressed no end from early EPs Friendship and Tulips, and of course albums Beach Church and last year’s Club Nites. While on the road supporting the latter, Dumb recorded a Tapetown Session between shows on the Scandinavian leg of their European tour, and the song the chose to perform is ‘My Condolences’. Lifted from 2019’s Club Nites, it captures the raw energy of the bands live shows caught for posterity in a ‘live in-studio’ setting. It is a frantic, frenzied of barrage of barked vocals backed by scintillating riffs, angular guitars and relentless jerky rhythms; ‘My Condolences’ is an absolute beast but one that is rather easy on the ear at the same time.
