Discovery: DAME

DAME are an indie pop band from Birmingham whose bright, disco-tinged new track Bite caught my ear.

By Graeme Smith

Bite combines catchy melodic indie with expressive and charismatic vocals to create a highly accessible indie pop track. Front-woman Shannon Farmer’s strong voice is a stand out but the whole track is well constructed, from its disco beat to its funky bass to its twinkling guitar riffs. The track finishes big and will linger with you. As Shannon puts it, Bite is “the ultimate anti-love song.” Who needs love when you can dance, right?

Formed at the University of Birmingham, DAME are Shannon, George, Jake and Matt. Check out Bite below. If you want to hear more music that’s just right, why not check out our Goldilocks playlist on Spotify too?
