Dummy - "Daffodils"

Image via Dummy

Los Angeles based Dummy have a sound that is retro cool while still looking forward. Their latest single, "Daffodils," has a space age 60's pop mixed with electronic music. Their press release refers to them as being "celestial drone-pop," and that might be the ideal description. For most of its almost three minute run time, "Daffodils" lulls you into this chilled out, spacey vibe despite being quite up tempo. And then some 90's indie rock guitar kicks in, which will solidify your love of the song and Dummy. It's a brilliant combination of bands like Stereolab and Yo La Tengo.

You can listen to "Daffodils" below. Mandatory Enjoyment is due out October 22 on Trouble in Mind. You can pre-order the album via Bandcamp. For more on Dummy, check out the band's Instagram.
