Things I would normally talk about as flaws are really staples of the pop punk genre but there is still some room for improvement with the band. The production on the album is decent but the vocals seem a bit soft and occasionally get lost in the noise. Amping up the vocals would go a long way for this sound. Not to say the production is bad, it's definitely solid and finding a balance especially in a bass heavy genre is a difficult thing to do, but it's something that hopefully we will see in a followup EP or album.
Dumbass is like opening up a time capsule and being hit with a wave of mid 90's nostalgia. It's a perfect encapsulation of the sound of southern California pop punk from that time. The bad has laid down energetic, fun, quirky, and playful tracks that feel exhilarating. It is a debut that does have some expected rough edges but rather than feeling cut, I would rather see the band work on that and look forward to hearing more from Scooped Up! in the future.
