The Londoners bring mechanical momentum to a surfer jam.

With their debut album 'Moon Tides' set to drop on Monday 19th August via Memphis Industries, Portland band Pure Bathing Culture have offered up their single Pendulum for remixing, and we're proud to present this energised rework from London-based four piece Woman's Hour exclusively on Dummy. The original is a beach-beckoning jam that saunters along on a lounging beat and languid guitars, but in the hands of the Londoners it becomes something altogether more urgent, with the vocal pushed to the forefront of skittering synth jabs and a beat that feels like a churning steam engine, charging forwards with mechanical momentum. 

Woman's Hour will play at our party next month – the first ever Dummy AGM at London Fields Brewery on the 28th and 29th of September: find out more about that here. Meanwhile, Pure Bathing Culture will playThe Waiting Room on the 25th September; more information on that here.
