Sharply contrasting serene and rolling verses with harsh, snarling guitars in the choruses, and layering wonderful, composed vocals over the top, newcomers Dama Scout explode onto the scene with ‘Forget It’s Good’.
With influences from Cocteau Twins to The Beach Boys, garage-rock and Japanese Shibuya-kei, ‘Forget It’s Good’ juxtaposes an intimate female vocal and hazy guitar with crushing, fuzzy interludes and harmonic modulations. It pushes and pulls the listener, before settling into a dream-like chorus of sweet melodies, playing on themes of expectation.
Disjointed, yet wonderfully composed, shoegaze and psych. The distinctive, pseudo-schizophrenic sound of Dama Scout is definitely not one to go unnoticed. With support from the likes of Vic Galloway, Crack In The Road and BBC Introducing, it’s safe to say that we can expect big things from the London/Glaswegian trio in the future.
