Dullards are a two piece, Power Pop Glam band who have recently released their debut singles and today I will be reviewing them, keep an eye out for Dullards by the way because they are planning on releasing a self produced power pop album later in the year.
‘Unlucky 4 U’ opens with a fast, jaunty little beat that had me hooked instantly, I also adored the vocals, I love the quirky, soft voices, it juxtaposes the instrumental opening well and you kind of get taken in by it, the band mentioned in their initial message they are inspired by the 60s and 70s and that really comes through, but it doesn’t just feel like an homage, but instead like the product of someone who really understood the spirit and sensibilities of that era of music.
‘Grand Pier’ also drew me in quickly, first off and hopefully someone else will hear it, but the core melody reminded me of the theme song from Heartbeat the old police drama on ITV. But anyway that aside because no doubt my ear is just busted I just love the flow of this song. They vocals and the instrumental sections both really harken back to wholesome themes from decades past, it really worked for me, and I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on Dullards in the future.
So that’s what I thought of Dullards debut singles ‘Unlucky 4 U’ and Grand Pier, and you can check them out for yourself by heading on over to Spotify. Make sure and support the band as well by following them on Facebook and Instagram.
