An intergalactic journey
Much like a good novel, good music has the ability to mentally transport you to another world – somewhere not necessarily better, but different, and different in a way that is unique to the perspective of the author/writer/composer. In their album Thank you Neil, Italian psych-rock duo Dumbo Gets Mad does a superb job of taking you on an intergalactic journey to their bizarre, dreamy, space-focused world where mystery and intrigue reign supreme. The track “Deeper and Deeper” teleports you to what a dark, smoky, intimate music venue on a permanently inhabited spacecraft would sound like. The song begins with a Doppler effect-esque synth slowly, with a dark, sustained synth in the background, until a prominent bass line and a simple, crisp rock beat enter the fray.
