Dumb Lovers Release Their Flawless Debut EP ‘For Love or Money’

Bournemouth band Dumb Lovers are without a doubt one of our top choice pop bands by far. With past songs like ‘Oscar’ and ‘Jessie’ quickly commanding attention with their sleek synth-pop and new wave sexiness, the trio consisting of Meg Rees, Robin Clark and James Gordelier, have released their debut EP ‘For Love or Money’.
