The Dumb Moves - The Dumb Moves
Low-key studio duo The Dumb Moves validate their short existence by releasing their quirky debut album on fury discs. A low-fi, guitar-driven set, which is as happy as it is heart-breaking: This collection owes much to the band’s contemporary influences from their native Southend. This is no surprise as the group are essentially a busmen’s’ holiday for Mark Steward and Leighton Jennings, who between them are also members of Southend’s indie royal families: Plantman, Dark Globes, and Melodie Group to name a few. The band have taken an oath never to play live, which we understand is an homage to the Beatles, but it seems more likely that they’re just too f***ing knackered.
