Dungeonesse - ‘Dungeonesse’
Dungeonesse want to “reclaim pop” and “place it squarely in the hands of a couple of regular nerds”
on ‘This Could Be Home’ Wasner lets loose, trilling the words “I feel amazing” in a way that’ll make you feel the same in an instant. The slow jam (‘Show You’) is less successful – a sort of awkward hug rather than a lustful deep grind – and on ‘Wake Me Up’ they don’t do wistful as well as that other indie-via-R&B crew, Poliça. Ultimately the one thing truly lacking on ‘Dungeonesse’ is the bright spark that makes pop stars so entertaining to obsess over.
