Dumbo Gets Mad

Music

Reggio Emilia, Italy

Dumbo Gets Mad is the psych-rock project from Italian duo Luca Massaro and Carlotta Menozzi. The project started out when Massaro & Menozzi relocated to Los Angeles in 2010. Their debut album, Elephants at the Door, has received numerous positive reviews and reached over 100k digital downloads. Soon after forming, the duo was joined, live, by two additional members: Andrea Scarfone (bass)—also a member of Italy's acclaimed rock-band Julie's Haircut—and Lorenzo Rotteglia (drums) and performed in different venues and festivals around Italy; including Circolo degli Artisti in Rome and MI AMI festival in Milan. In 2012, they opened Neon Indian's concert in Padua at Summer Student Festival and played at Find Out Festival in Marseille with Bleached and The Black Lips. On February 6th, 2013, the duo released their 2nd LP, Quantum Leap. The band soon followed up with their third full-length, Thank You Neil (Bad Panda / Ghost Records) in late-2015—an album that Stereogum described as containing “a sense of galactic wonder in the folds of [it’s] charming funk tunes...” More recently, in 2019, the band released two digital singles—”Makes You Fly” and “Voodoo on Gold” (Nice Guy Records)—and contributed music to the Versace Jeans Couture 2019 ad campaign.
