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.
Dentist formed in 2013, built around the songwriting partnership of Emily and Justin Bornemann. The pair had been writing songs and performing together in various ways since their first meeting in 2008 at the legendary punk hangout, TGI Friday’s.
The band released their self-titled debut album in 2014, which Pandora described as “a deliriously infectious collection of fuzzy, California-styled, indie pop jangle and sun dappled garage rock crunch.” They released their sophomore album, Ceilings, June 2016 via Asbury Park’s Little Dickman Records, which was critically acclaimed, and received press in media such as Noisey and Stereogum. Their single “Meet You There (In Delaware) was also selected for Spotifys Fresh Finds playlist, and chosen as one of Daytrotter’s top 100 songs of 2016.
Dentist has toured extensively in the US and across Canada and has shared the stage with a variety of national acts, including JEFF the Brotherhood, Laura Stevenson, Television, Screaming Females, Ringo Deathstarr, Mrs. Magician, and more.
