Indie music is a tough genre to define. With so many different sounds and influences, the label “indie rock” is broad at best. The indie sound can change from album to album, or even song to song, which is why the term suits Dr. Dog so well. The Pennsylvania based quintet has the feel good melodies reminiscent of classic doo wop rockers, such as the Beach Boys or The Zombies, while still containing a fresh and uniquely organic sound. The clean melodies found in songs such as “The Truth” or “The Breeze” mimic in style, those found in many classic 60’s jams. Just as the indie genre implies however, this is only one of Dr. Dog’s influences.
While the 60’s doo wop sound is the spine of Dr. Dog’s work, they are also heavily influenced by 90’s college radio rockers. This lo fi sounding, self reflective group of bands made a significant impact on the members of Dr. Dog. The lyricism and subject matter of Dr. Dog’s songs echoes the work of popular 90’s underground bands like Neutral Milk Hotel and Pavement. The strong live performances of these older groups can be seen in Dr. Dog’s dedication to delivering quality live acts at every show. Dr. Dog combines a love for classic feel good harmony with meaningful songwriting, making them one of the most unique “indie” bands around. Check out Dr. Dog’s refreshing style in the video below and be sure to help promote their new tour on Jamplify. The top promoter at every stop WINS TWO FREE TICKETS!
EDM (Electronic Dance Music) has become a global phenomenon over the past five years. It has evolved from a niche driven underground genre into one of the fastest growing movements in music, and there is no better illustration of the EDM frenzy than TomorrowWorld. With the enormous success of the EDM genre, festivals geared towards the new craze began springing up left and right. With so many festivals bringing in strong acts and delivering quality shows annually, it’s tough for any one festival to truly stand out. The exception is TomorrowWorld. TomorrowWorld, the American extension of Belgium’s TomorrowLand, is truly the pinnacle of the EDM festival scene.
One of the most intriguing facets of EDM is it’s international mass appeal. Electronic music has no language barrier, and connects to enormous audiences despite their native tongue. EDM is universal and TomorrowWorld is the tangible example of this. Hundreds of countries are represented by droves of energetic bass heads, looking for nothing more than to connect to the beats, crowds, and colors around them. The international influence at TomorrowWorld, in both artists and audience, is unmatched by any other EDM festival. However, despite the many different nations being proudly representing on the festival grounds, there is an overwhelming sense of togetherness. TomorrowWorld captures the true EDM spirit, one of camaraderie and celebration, and is the apex of electronic music festivals.
