Legendary vocal-happy label 4AD (Bon Iver, Grimes, The National) has picked up its fourth ever Australian artist. Castlemaine's D.D Dumbo has just signed a big ol' deal to become one of the 4AD family.

Celebrated for his minimalist style, mesmerising vocals and ridiculous ability with a 12-string guitar, D.D Dumbo has pricked the ears of the likes of Warpaint, St Vincent and Iron & Wine — picking up invitations for support slots along the way. The Victorian native has landed more support gigs for Daughter and Tame Impala in the UK, along with a debut headline show in London and a highly coveted slot at Latitude Festival.

The Castlemaine local will return home in July to support the ever eclectic and straight-up magical Tune-Yards for her Splendour sideshows, working his way from Melbourne's Howler to North Byron Parklands and back to Oxford Art Factory.

Jump wholeheartedly on the bandwagon this time around, this kid's going to get expensive.

D.D DUMBO AUSTRALIAN DATES:

24 July - Howler, Melbourne (supporting Tune-Yards) SOLD OUT

25 July - Howler, Melbourne (supporting Tune-Yards)

27 July - Splendour in The Grass SOLD OUT

28 July - Oxford Art Factory (supporting Tune-Yards)
