Northwest Ohio five-piece The Dumb Easies play music that has been called a lot of things, but our favorite has got to be tambourinist and head-vocal enhancer Ted Truman’s recent description of their sound as “tortured pop with a cherry on top.” That’s as good a snapshot of The Dumb Easies music as you’re likely to find. Scotty Harkness’s addictive guitar hooks, bassist Matt Alexander’s bilious bass-lines and drummer Heather Revill’s heart-pumping danceteria garage beats whip up a darkly infectious brew, topped off with the mournful and honey-sweet voice of lead singer and rhythm guitarist Cory Andricks. It’s not easy to pull off a feel-good love song in these cynical end times, but The Dumb Easies somehow manage it by wrapping their sweetness in barbed wire, marinating it in heartbreak and offering the resulting mixture up with a twist of menace and melancholy that still leaves the hint of love’s golden promise intact. “Lost a dream or two /along the way and /in the distance is forty’s horizon,” sings Andricks on “Go Go Go.” “So let’s stop wasting time / let’s go go go ‘cause we’re dead tomorrow / power off all the machines / the sun is shining for you and me.” 

You can clearly hear the Motown, ‘50s pop and early punk rock influences on The Dumb Easies’ jagged pop odes to love’s delicious torment, but as they told the Toledo City Paper a couple of summers ago, “the cool thing is that we’re each personally influenced by such different genres. After band practice, when we’re taking turns playing songs, there’s usually some Skynyrd and Britney Spears in there somewhere. We don’t really make music to cater to the college kids or the hipsters or the punks or the intellectuals—but everyone seems to like us anyway.”
Although they’ve only been together as a band since 2005, individually the members of The Dumb Easies been doing the rounds in the local rock scene for years as members of The Cupcakes, The Matt Truman Ego Trip, The Wigfur Allstars, Bigfoot and the Fully Automatics and Hot Love. Now they’re reaching out to a broader fan base by widening their horizons.

In the summer of 2011 they played at the Toledo Museum of Art, a show that gave them exposure to a more diverse audience than the usual rock club clientele. Children danced, grandmas clapped and even the museum docents approved. This past February too, to accompany the release of their free Valentine’s Day promo-single, the Dumb Easies played local radio station WBGU 88.1FM’s “Live Wire” show at the Cla-Zel Theater, which was recorded and videotaped live for rebroadcast at a later date on public television.

The Dumb Easies’ Love!, Love!, Love! is the very first release by Cytoblast Records, a brand-new Northwest Ohio record label, and is being marketed to college radio, music blogs, and magazines both nationally and internationally.
