Danish rock band Darling Don’t Dance present a unique unity of style and substance. While unabashedly rooted in the commercial explosion of punk rock in the early ‘90s, the band’s sound also evokes the visceral Portland indie of the latter ‘90s and the artier sounds of New York and Boston in the late ‘80s.
Since forming in 2007, Darling Don’t Dance have played shows across Denmark, journeyed to I...See More
"Three-quarters of Darling Don't Dance could be J. Mascis' forgotten daughters. In the spirit of the Dinosaur Jr. front man they are playing cupid with golden melodies and the perfectly right grunge sound coming from big muff guitar effects." (Soundvenue, 2012)
"Simple rock rhythms, vocal melodies with a twist of pop and noise have never been mixed so uncompromising and harmonic." (Underlyd, 2012
"The 90s-sounding debut of Darling Don't Dance is a nice collection of pretty vocal harmonies and strong melodies. Just listen to the high point 'Replacement' that successfully combines a 'snapping' verse with a charming, Breeders-like chorus." (Gaffa, 2012)
Obviously inspired by bands like The Breeders, Sonic Youth and Smashing Pumpkins the choice of letting the well-reputed producer and engineer John Agnello mix the album was evident. He's been working with Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, The Kills, and The Breeders among others.
In 2009 the band released the EP Bare Frames which was reviewed as "some of the best garage rock that has reached our latitudes this year" (Soundvenue, 2009) and described as "a quartet with a great potential. It's gripping and you’re left wanting more" (Diskant, 2009).
