DNCE- Swaay Album Review

By  | 

DNCE just dropped their debut EP Swaay via Republic Records. The band debuted with their single Cake By The Ocean to rave reviews. The great thing about this band is the fact they’re so hard to put into a single genre. The band has alternative, funk, and pop influences. The EP features four songs including Cake By The Ocean.
The second track is Pay My Rent is focused more on the funkadelic sound with hypnotizing vocals. The second track to feature gang vocals/sounds which really adds dimension to the track. Toothbrush showcases Joe’s falsetto. As a former Jo Bro fan I didn’t even realize he could hit those notes. Then immediately after the falsetto he goes into a deep sexy voice. The lyrics have more depth than their debut single, telling a woman she can leave a toothbrush at his place. Jinx is the last song on the album featuring a kazoo. The song builds beginning with a slower beat and rhythm, climaxing with a relaxed up tempo chorus.
The EP is a great start for the band and I can’t wait to see them grow and hopefully release a full length album in the future. The EP has totally different vibes and there is a track for almost every music lover. Definitely check out their album and their U.S. tour.
