About the ArtistThe Dashing Suns are a four piece band hailing from Oakland, California. While many bands in today's scene seem to follow a paint by numbers musical format, The Dashing Suns have managed to find a way of redefining the idea of popular music. Their style is a combination of 60's psychedelia, 70's pop radio, 80's post punk and 90's shoegaze. Their songs are short, dynamic, infectious and undeniable.
Although the band has only been in existence for less than a year, The Dashing Suns have managed to perform a staggering amount of shows that range from headlining in cushy Bay Area venues to sweating it out at Brooklyn warehouse parties. Their live shows are a testament to the power of a simply crafted melody and their recordings (that happen to be crafted in their practice space) simply put most of today's overwrought studio recordings to shame.
The Dashing Suns are not just a band that one watches cross armed in the dark. They have somehow figured out a way to become a manifestation of the powerful combination of brotherhood and sheer talent.
