Jersey Rock Band of the Week: Dentist

Rocking Langosta Lounge in Asbury Park on Saturday 1/12!

Asbury Park Indie/Alternative Surf Rockers Dentist draw a lot of their creative power from the storied “City By The Sea.”  The band describes their music as a sound that “combines the freedom of the beach atmosphere and the urgency of the city into a fuzzed out, surf punk-tinged brand of indie pop with hooks and infectious melodies to spare.”  It’s a spot-on description. Dentist’s sound is unique and while it is born from Asbury Park it will reach far beyond the famed musical hotspot.

Dentist’s third album “Night Swimming” is available now.  The disc was released on Cleopatra Records and is a strong follow up to the band’s acclaimed sophomore album “Ceilings.”  “Night Swimming” continues to expand Dentist’s reach. The effort is highly accessible while retaining an independent edge of credibility.  It’s fresh, enjoyable and full of energy.
