Ever since they first emerged earlier this year, emerging newcomers Dumb Buoys Fishing Club have quickly established themselves as one of the more exciting names doing the rounds. After a string of notable festival and headline show appearances in recent months, the pair have also turned out a wealth of widely-praised singles, adding further momentum to their already accelerating rise. And with hype now reaching its zenith, they deliver their eagerly-awaited debut album 'WRECKED', a record brimming with fresh and innovative ideas throughout.
While the release's guest appearances such as BROCKHAMPTON’s Merlyn, Leyla Blue, Bryce Vine, Lauren Sanderson and more make for an interesting experience, it is the vibrant and adventurous production on 'WRECKED' that really pulls you in. Taking cues from the likes of Gorillaz and N.E.R.D, this new collection has a wonderfully distinctive feel to it, while also maintaining an engaging edge throughout. Not since the heyday of Beastie Boys have we heard a hip-hop collective that brings some much uncompromising energy and vigour to their work.
Although it is still very early days for the pair, 'WRECKED' is jam-packed with this driven flow that rarely lets up. At this rate, Dumb Buoys Fishing Club could end up going down as one of the more impactful cult names of the year so far.
