Dummy – “Daffodils”

After releasing two EPs last year, Dummy shines brightly and flexes their songwriting muscles on their exciting debut full-length, Mandatory Enjoyment. Just check out their first preview track, “Daffodils,” and you’ll know what I mean:

Hailing from LA, Dummy employs a combination of jangly 90s pop vibes with sizzling noise-laden instrumentation. As you can hear on “Daffodils,” their reserved vocals are reminiscent of the likes of The Rain Parade and Antietam, while their ripping guitar work and tight song structure brings to mind everyone from Eric’s Trip and The Dream Syndicate to the Pixies and Bad Moves.

If you love a song that rocks out hard with a chaotic psychedelic sheen that’s also filled with charming pop hooks that stay in your head all day, this is the track (and album) for you.

Trouble in Mind Records will be releasing Mandatory Enjoyment on October 22nd, and preorders are live as of today. Click here to claim your copy today.
