“Lies” – DENNIS
It’s Feature Friday, son! We featured new music a few times on a few Fridays, so whatever, we might as well make it a thing now.
Today’s Sharx #feature comes from Minneapolis electronic pop duo DENNIS. Don’t let the masculine name fool you though, Katie Bolin & Sarah Morrison craft synth-driven pop music from a feminine perspective. DENNIS songs seem to be formed based on the pop music essentials of fun synths, auto-tuned vocals, & catchy bass lines, but are then juxtaposed against no-holds-barred lyrics & a healthy dose of darkwave overtones. This honest pop sensibility with darker intimations is best exhibited in recent track “Lies” off their independent release “Don’t Fall In Love” (available on both iTunes & Bandcamp).
DENNIS play Kitty Cat Klub in Minneapolis on September 11th, & then once again on October 27th which will be a Halloween costume party show. I’m sure it will be quite the scene. You’ll want to be there if yr in the area.
