Vancouver quartet Dumb play indie rock with major punk spirit, whipping out frantic, tongue-in-cheek tunes that each hover around the two-minute mark. They just put out the title track from their upcoming album, Club Nites, and now they’ve got a fabulously named new single out, “Beef Hits.”
Dumb’s performance on “Beef Hits” feels reminiscent of Parquet Courts — synchronized, accusatory, and downright fun. “Think you’re special/ Think I got your number,” singer-guitarist Franco Rossino deadpans. “Think I got the keys to the fucking city/ Think I’m gonna offer you tea and cake.” Later on, the track’s rending guitars get tailed off by some pretty stellar saxophone.
