Dentist comes from the oceanfront urban landscape of Asbury Park, New Jersey. Their sound combines the freedom of the beach atmosphere and the urgency of the city into a fuzzed out, surf punk-tinged brand of indie pop with hooks and infectious melodies to spare.
The ethereal vocals of Emily Bornemann are countered by the sometimes aggressive, but always addictive sounds of Justin Bornemann on guitar and Matt Hockenjos on drums.
The beginning of 2020 was full of promise, but it took a hard turn that none of us expected. Instead of making music that reflected on the depression that set in during lockdown, Dentist decided to work on an album that would inspire them and their listeners to hang in there and look forward to better times ahead. Their 4th album will be fueled by both the struggle and excitement of getting to a better place - with upbeat, melodic and fuzzed out songs, as exemplified in their first single in February 2021. Though some express feelings of doubt or anger, the songs all convey a range of emotions that have been shadowed by a global pandemic and the stresses of everyday life. The ultimate goal for this album is to help uncover the little joys in life and to approach some of its many uncertainties with a positive outlook.
