Spearheaded by Australian songwriter Adam Harding, DUMB NUMBERS is a collective of sorts. Enlisting the help of a rotating cast of amazing musicians, Harding’s compositions touch on everything from drone-pop to left-leaning-metal to balls-out rock. According to Adam, “Most Americans don’t realize that in Australia, we actually celebrate x-mas in June! The winter solstice (or hibernal solstice), also known as midwinter, marks the shortest day and longest night of the year. In the Southern Hemisphere this is the June solstice, falling this year on Wednesday, June 21. In recognition of this monumental astronomical phenomenon, we present for your listening pleasure, the latest installment in the continuing evolution of DUMB NUMBERS, the “Stranger EP”.
