NEW MUSIC PROFILE - ALTERNATIVE INDIE ROCK BAND "WHITE DENIM"
White Denim are a four piece Alternative Indie Rock band from Texas, USA. Their music is a unique blend of various genres that grab at the senses on first intriguing listen. The band's influences are quite eclectic if their music is anything to go by. There are hints of 60s Psychedelia, Classic Rock of the 70s and 80s Rock and Electronica. I'm surprised this band aren't globally everywhere as their brand of weird and creative Rock is quite unusual.
I first caught the band on the YouTube video for The song "Pretty Green", in a hilarious and crazy video, the song is incredibly catchy, with hints of 70s Rock and almost ZZ Top Blues and also a hint of 90s Grunge. Its such a great song and got my attention to find out more about this band who obviously have a sense of humour as well as immense talent!
After several albums I have found much to admire from these guys. Some of my favourites include "New Coat" which is a bouncy, cute little number reminiscent of The Cardigans or late 80s/early 90s pure Pop (from the album "Last Day Of Summer") and a hybrid of The Doors and The Kinks arises on "Drug" (from the album "D"). I also love the Classic Rock of "Holda You (I'm Psycho)", the 80s Rock of "Real Deal Momma" and the weirdly wonderful T-Rex/The Sweet combination on "There's A Brain In My Head" from the album "Stiff".
Following fast on the heels of their 2018 album, "Performance" comes "Side Effects", out March 2019. Includes the latest single, "Reversed Mirror". Check these Texan rockers out, there really is something for everyone!
