Former frontman of The Dumdums returns with solo EP.
THE FORMER frontman and principle songwriter of popular mainstream
band The Dumdums, Josh Doyle, has returned to the music scene after a
three and a half year absence. The British-born singer now living in
the USA spoke about his first solo release, an EP which will be
released on 1st November. Said Doyle, "I have been working here in
Nashville with my producer, making some exciting new music. I should
really be aloof and cool about it but it has turned out so well - new
sounds, new beats, great melodies and heartfelt lyrics, that's what
you can expect. This isn't going to be your usual 'band guy goes solo'
thing. It's acoustic, it's emotional, it's electronic, it's the future
and it rocks. It's beats made out of camera noises and water. It's
unlike anything out there at the moment but it's totally accessible
and it's totally song oriented. I am really excited about it...can you
tell? And my producer is a top new talent that you will be hearing
more of. The new EP is the next step from 'It Goes Without Saying'
thematically and musically. It actually starts where 'Setting Sail'
left off at the end of the album. Where 'IGWS' was about growing up
and being faced with the future, this EP is about moving on and being
out in the world on your own. It's exciting because I think people
will connect with it. I think people will have gone through the same
things as I have." The opinions expressed in this article are
