Some songs can transport us back in time;
back to the first concert we went to, back to seventh grade, back to the first heartbreak, back to a fun party.
And some songs transport us into a certain season.
You know, a melancholic song can easily put you in the mood for Fall or Winter.
And those super up-beat tracks prepare you for Summer.
DNCE seem to be that kind of band that knows what Summer sounds like.
Their debut single "Cake By The Ocean" made last Summer more fun and allowed the band to introduce their funky sound.
DNCE are a four piece outfit based in Los Angeles, US.
The band found together through a couple connections and is now here to share their alternative, funk music with us.
DNCE consists of:Joe Jonas (vocals)
JinJoo Lee (guitar)
Cole Whittle (bass, keyboard)
Jack Lawless (drums)
Their debut single "Cake By The Ocean" ended up double-platinum and allowed the band to enter the pop industry with a bang.
After releasing their debut EP "SWAAY", touring with Selena Gomez and winning "Best New Artist" at the MTV Video Music Awards, DNCE have created a lot of buzz for their debut album "DNCE" which they released in November 2016.
With an ever-growing fanbase and the big media loving their sound, DNCE have just blessed us with a new track - "Kissing Strangers" featuring R'n'B rapper Nicki Minaj.
It's only April, so it feels too early to praise a song as a Summer anthem, but I think we have one right here.
The song is super catchy, up-beat and just makes you want to dance.
A killer riff leads us through the song and quickly becomes our dance buddy.
The drum beat makes sure you don't slow down whilst guitar and bass take turns shredding riffs.
With some sexy vocals in the verse, catchy chants in the chorus and lyrics you'll quickly learn, the song has the perfect vibe for Summer.
Whether you like Nicki Minaj or not, her part of the song is a massive bonus and just raises the party vibes.
Grab your dancing shoes and booooogie with DNCE!
