Dumb Unit is a band defined by songwriting abilities. By mastering an amalgam of musical genres, we craft signature songs dominated by lyrical brilliancy. With this foundation, Dumb Unit truly triumphs when they add elements of improvisation, rock and beat-boxing.
Featuring guitar, mandolin, saxophone, bass, drums and vocal percussion, Dumb Unit guarantees a lesson in musical history along with their own signature brand of genre-defying sounds.
Our debut album, “I'm the living dead", is a unique assembly of songs that seamlessly blend elements of rock and roll with blues, jazz and folk. “my heart's stopped beating” (2021) features the same range of style, but includes their first single to be charted on college radio. This track quickly became a fan favorite for its complex rhythms and catchy melodies.
Although the band is still relatively new, they have already started making a name for themselves. They have played numerous shows throughout the province and have even opened for some bigger acts. Dumb Unit is a band to watch out for in the coming years!
