Atlanta Five-Piece DANK Live Friday, Feb. 13th at Proud Larry’s
Dank, formerly Dank Sinatra, has released a new self-titled album that is available on CD Baby, iTunes, Spotify, and other online download and streaming outlets.
Dank is concrete evidence of this Atlanta five-piece’s ability to put together an album that rewards both the close listening enthusiast and the quick trip YouTube-ist. With feet firmly on the ground in clever hooks and melodies, along with an interstellar spin wrought by Producer Scott Nicholas, Dank is an album written over the last year by a band in between cities. The resulting work exhibits growth and movement, roots being lifted from their foundations, and a feverous excitement towards a future unknown. Space age synth leads and effects, southern rock craftsmanship, scorching dual guitar leads, and experimental transitions and song structure are the name of the game here. As their most focused effort yet, Dank provides the listener with a complete experience and an invitation to follow along for the journey to come.
With energetic and unpredictable live performances, as well as a knack for the studio and all of its wizardry, this Atlanta five-piece is showing fans what it takes to rock in the torrid seas of a post-Napster musical climate. It’s hard to pin down exactly what the Dank will become, or how far the band has come to get to where it is today, but at the core of this outfit is a red hot soul and a burning sense of modern day Rock and Roll magic.
