Dumb are the next band to come out of Birmingham and show signs of being something special. In the past few weeks, the band’s name has cropped up several times and it looks like it could be happening a lot more, leading up to the end of the year. They claim to be influenced by the likes of The Cribs, Pavement and Built To Spill; but Dumb are taking things in to their hand and have produced an original sound for themselves.
Line-up: Dylan Williams (Vocals), Tom Minchin (Guitarist), Sam Ryan (Drums), Adam Pyzer (Bass)
Background: Dumb already have a lot under their belts and they are only just getting started. They have already featured in NME and on BBC Radio 1 but made their debut at London’s KOKO. They have since gone on to support the likes of Darlia, Baby Strange, Childhood and Telegram. Recently, they opened the show at The Royal Albert Hall for their manager’s (Jon Brookes) memorial night which allowed them to play alongside The Vaccines, New Order and The Charlatans.
