[BadPanda049] Dumbo Gets Mad – Eclectic Prawn

with 10 comments

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.

Enjoy the monday dish and be sure to scroll down for the interesting interview.

Lyrics:

Eclectic prawn, galactic prawn,
eclectic prawn, galactic prawn.
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

  1. Good God, this is a good track! And I just heard “Plumy Tale” for the first time. My mind is blown. The Needle Drop mutualized the love, as that is how I discovered Dumbo Gets Mad. Yay!

  2. Oh, Wristcutters one of my favourites. You’re the best, guys!
