Dama Scout create a staggering sensation with new single "Paper Boy"

12 April 2017, 12:30 | Written by Jessica Goodman

After kickstarting the year with a performance at our Best Fit Forecast in January, Dama Scout have shared a brand new single.

In characteristically dreamy fashion, "Paper Boy" strolls along scuzzed up refrains in a reverb soaked haze. Head in the clouds, sugar sweet melodies guide the way to a swirling sensation of a chorus primed to whisk you off your feet. But Dama Scout have more than windswept allure up their sleeves.

Expanding into an ever-evolving cinematic world of squalling riffs and resounding distortion, the track scales to a staggeringly intoxicating climax complete with lingering refrains and deafening echoes. This is a track designed to swamp the senses - and it does so with a vivacity it's impossible to resist.

Dama Scout perform at London's Shacklewell Arms with Fake Laugh on 18 April, and The Dome, Tufnell Park with Happyness on 28 April.

"Paper Boy" is released via RIP Records on 14 April.
