If you haven't already, listen to their debut single 'Cake By The Ocean'.
Joe Jonas has a new musical project underway, and it's a rather alternative venture compared with the easy-listening pop of sibling trio the Jonas Brothers. DNCE is Jonas' return to form and their new single 'Cake By The Ocean' is something of an earworm.
Ya gotta love these crazy kids
Nick Jonas has been the brother with the most attention after his self-titled solo album in 2014 went to number 6 in the US and was subsequently re-issued in Europe. But now Joe is looking at his own share of independent success with the band DNCE (pronounced 'dance').
Also featuring Semi Precious Weapons bassist Cole Whittle on bass and keyboard, Joe's old friend and touring partner Jack Lawless on drums and South Korean beauty JinJoo Lee on guitar, DNCE have just unveiled an entertaining yet intimate live performance video of their debut single 'Cake By The Ocean'. The track was officially released in September and soon followed an EP entitled 'SWAAY' in October.
The song, out now on Republic Records, is a super-catchy, summery number with elements of ska and funk. The guitar riff is simple yet incredibly infectious, and combined with Joe's impressive falsetto, makes for a super sexy dance number with some cheeky subject matter. We're not so sure about Cole's whistle though.
DNCE describe themselves as 'disco hits by the best garage band ever', but there's more to this LA band than just the music. The live video unveils some unique facts about the members, such as Joe once locking lips with Dillon Francis during Spin The Bottle, Cole having belonged to a traveling circus, Jack formerly acting as a lifeguard at school and Jinjoo's stint giving Charli XCX dance lessons.
You can catch DNCE on the road as they headline their Greatest Tour Ever Tour this December, visiting cities across the US.
