When you’re a Parisian band about to cross the pond for the first time, it always helps when you perform in English. Another boon for DAD, is sounding a bit like TV On The Radio and not unlike Grizzly Bear. But this French five piece isn’t just a sounding board of American cool, they own this sound, mixing spoken word group-vocals, keyboards, drums and glockenspiel like they belong together. In fact, their drummer often plays the glockenspiel whilst he drums.
Their upcoming album “Vitro” comes out this September on Obliqsound, for which the band will tour a few key locations in the US and Canada. We required the usual pound of flesh to grant them entry, of course. Here’s lead singer Gabriel Gorman delivering that to us, hot and Brûléed.
