Some people are having a Brat summer, but idobi Radio is having a Roe Kapara summer. The rising modern rock singer just dropped his raw and all-too-relatable new single “Dumb” and upcoming EP Big Cigars and Satin Shorts. Preceded by singles released “Glorious Day” and “The Dead Come Talking,” “Dumb” is also set to appear on the EP due out on August 23 via Epitaph.

Kapara says, “‘Dumb’ is a tune about the inadequacies you feel around family members and loved ones that try to pigeonhole you into their way of life.”

He continues, “It’s like if you were to spend your entire existence tinkering and toiling away in an attempt to build the most eloquent sandcastle the world has ever seen, and your Aunt Carol stomps on it with her floppy, wet feet. The floppy, wet feet being Aunt Carol’s backhanded compliments and sneering contorted facial expressions she makes at Thanksgiving dinner whenever you talk about your hopes and dreams. But it’s also just a nice tune to dance along to on a lonely Saturday night.”

Coming up soon, Kapara can be seen at venues in London. Then, in August, the “Life In America” singer will perform various California dates. Check out the run below and secure tickets here.

  • July 12—London, UK @ The Grace* (SOLD OUT)
  • July 13—London, UK @ 2000 Trees Festival
