DUMMY – ” Mono Retriever “

Posted: July 26, 2022 in MUSIC

Dummy follows up their debut LP “Mandatory Enjoyment” with two songs for the Sub Pop Singles Club. The A-Side, “Mono Retriever” is a baroque-drone-pop rager that imagines what a punk Free Design song might sound like. The lyrics criticize the corporate greenwashing and dishonesty at the root of ecological devastation. On the B-Side, “Pepsi Vacuum” the band experiments with sampling and digital editing, taking inspiration from 90’s ambient and chill-out music. As a lyrical counterpoint, “Pepsi Vacuum” is about the spirituality of nature; the powerful feeling of universality and connection, down to the molecular level.

The two songs function as mirrors, referencing the other musically, and both sharing oceanic lyrical themes.
