SR Video of the Day: Tropical Ocean – D.D Dumbo
More reasons to love Australia today. Hailing from the small city of Castlemaine, Oliver Hugh Perry, aka D.D Dumbo is an unconventional singer-songwriter who made his U.S. debut a few weeks ago at SXSW. The video for Tropical Ocean, which recently debuted on Fader, projects serene, organic shots of an Australian forest onto the minimal, bluesy guitar. Supremely relaxing and sonically pleasing, this sunny video and smooth vibes are perfect for this beautiful Sunday.
“There’s hardly anything holding the tune together aside from its lurching backbeat, knotted lines of electric guitar and twisting vocal moan. But Dumbo’s voice is chilling when he offers cryptic one liner like ‘I opened my skull you were looking at me.’ The result is a beguiling modern take on a classic form.” SOURCE: iTunes Single of the Week
