As the web investigates this talented young song writer, rumours abound: D.D. Dumbo is said to be a modern nomad, travelling the world’s highways with his guitar and hand-made effects. But the mystery has lifted (a little), thanks to his new record label, legendary 4AD (Bon Iver, Deerhunter, Grimes, etc), and information has begun to leak. Dumbo, AKA Oliver Hugh Perry from Australia’s Melbourne suburbs, creates unclassifiable music from a 12-string guitar and effect pedals endlessly looping sounds and voices. One part blues, one part world music, one part experimental pop, the fascinating result of this blend has us impatiently waiting for his first appearance on French soil.
