Dentist, Night Swimming (July 20)
It’s impossible to say what strange combination of chemistry makes one lo-fi pop-rock outfit stand out where so many others fade into the background, but New Jersey’s Dentist has managed to turn its beach-filtered tunes into a distinctive and compelling take on the old formulas of surf and shoegaze. Anchored by Emily Bornemann’s distinctive love-it-or-hate-it vocal combination of breathy bravado and youthful coo, the three-piece’s songs maintain one foot in a hard-charging rock vibe, the other in a shimmery gauze of airy chill—a smooth balance of spice and sugar, perfect for sweltering summer nights.
Dentist return with their latest album of infectious indie-pop!
The new album from New Jersey’s buzziest indie surf rock band, Dentist!
Named one of the top 10 bands at this year’s SXSW by Mercury News and a darling of critics at NPR, Stereogum, Flood Magazine and more, Dentist are primed to explode in popularity with this their third and strongest album to date!
The band tours consistently and has shared the stage with Laura Stevenson, Television, Screaming Females, Ringo Deathstarr and more!
