[BadPanda049] Dumbo Gets Mad – Eclectic Prawn
Do you remember the Pink Elephants on Parade scene, from the 1941 Disney masterpiece, in which Dumbo, after accidentally becoming intoxicated, see pink elephants sing, dance, and play trumpets during a hallucination sequence? Yes, Dumbo gets mad!
Dumbo Gets Mad is an italian psych-rock project. He released on July his debut song, Plumy Tale [mp3] that was the feel good hit of last summer around here. It was reviewed with a 9/10 by Mr. Anthony Fantano (aka The Needle Drop) and it came with an awesome video: surfers and big waves.
Now he is back and Bad Panda is really proud to bring you his second track, Eclectic Prawn: retro psychedelia, dreamy times and fat sunny days are here again.

This is the story of eclectic prawn,
he wears a little pretty crown
dancing through the bubbles
he is now standing on the bottom of the sea.
He knows his look thanks to the eyeballs
of the fishes swimming nearby his throne,
he may be fooled by those reflections
as it happens even up in the shore.
Eclectic prawn, galactic prawn.
He’s regarded like a king
of the sea he never talked to me,
i still think he is a gentleman i
don’t wanna bother him until i might
And now it’s time to visit his castle,
i hope i’ll know who i am,
i’m sure i’ll find good vibes,
hot salty sparkling water
