“Eclectic Prawn” by Dumbo Gets Mad

Pure mind-expanding bliss.
Dumbo Gets Mad

I recently discovered the Italian psych-pop duo Dumbo Gets Mad, and I’m wishing I could go back in time so that I could’ve been listening to them for longer than just the last few days.

Consider “Eclectic Prawn,” from 2011’s Elephants at the Door. From its bubbling backdrop, which serves as the perfect sonic metaphor for the duo’s audio alchemy, to the Led Zeppelin-meets-hyperactive organ breakdown, to the fuzzed-out guitar solo that winds things down, this song is pure mind-expanding bliss.

Dumbo Gets Mad’s second album, Quantum Leap, will be released next year on Bad Panda Records. You can listen to the first single, “Radical Leap,” here.
