Blue Americans – Dumbo | New Music
Hailing from Belfast, duo Kris Platt and Daniel Morgan Ball – known as Blue Americans – have today released their brand new single “Dumbo“. It serves as the follow up to “Honey” and both are taken from their upcoming EP Sum Yen out on April 18.
“Dumbo” finds the band showcasing their experimental pop leanings, as murky, brooding synths and electronic hip hop beats fill the verses before swelling up to an irrepressible chorus. The soulful vocals of lead singer Kris Platt are the mainstay of the track, commanding the track with tangible passion.
Describing the single, the band say: “‘Dumbo’ is a song that dwells on the significance of the everyday monotony and the mundane. All of these seemingly meaningless happenings down under the Manhattan Bridge overpass or in your living room, these are the moments that shape your existence. Don’t miss it, Dumbo.”
Having recently toured with Fatherson and supported Youngr at his Village Underground show, the band have announced details of two headline shows set to take place in May. They will grace The Waiting Room in London on May 16 before returning home for a show at Voodoo on May 26.
