In our opinion, Dumbo Gets Mad‘s debut album, last year’s Elephants At The Door, was one of last year’s most overlooked albums. Not for us though, as it earned a coveted spot on our year-end list at number fifteen. We weren’t expecting any new material soon from the still largely anonymous Italian, duo, but today we’ve been surprised.
With the Facebook caption “I’ve been lost in thoughts bigger than me.”, the band has directed us to the premiere of a new song, “Radical Leap“, which came via Yours Truly. In typicalDumbo Gets Mad fashion, it’s a good bit of accessible psychedelia, complete with swirling synthesizers, weird noises and grooving guitars.
There’s more good news for fans of the Italian duo, though. It seems like “Radical Leap” is actually the first single from Quantum Leap, the band’s sophomore album, which we can expect in January of next year on the always trustworthy Bad Panda Records.
