ASBURY PARK, NJ – September 7, 2022 – Upbeat, melodic and fuzzed out indie rock trio DENTIST has been making waves with their new album Making A Scene. The album has received nothing but rave reviews since its September 2nd release. Goldmine Magazine boasted, “intense power-pop excitement.” New Noise Magazine vowed, “their strongest album yet.” The Punk Site declared, “easily this trio’s most accomplished, catchy and engaging album to date.” Glide Magazine added, “all sorts of ’90s power-pop vibes.”

Also, Dentist will be closing out summer at Sea.Hear.Now Festival in Asbury Park on Saturday, September 17th with Stevie Nicks, Boy George & Culture Club, My Morning Jacket, Gary Clark Jr. and others. In addition, limited edition pink vinyl is still available via Cleopatra Records webstore.

From a summer fling (“Check the Calendar”) to making a living doing something that you love (“New Dress”) to dealing with self-pity (“Understand It”) to being ghosted (“Don’t Let Me Catch You”) to being in an abusive relationship (“Let Me Let Go”) to causing emotional damage to women (“Spilled Coffee”) – Making A Scene touches on human emotions such as love, loss, grief and anxiety. At times, the songs touch on nihilism, expressing that no matter what happens nothing really matters.
“Don’t Let Me Catch You”
Dentist hails from the oceanfront urban landscape of Asbury Park, NJ. Their sound 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. Their third album Night Swimming made some waves in 2018. It was one of  The A.V. Club’s Most Anticipated Albums of 2018. In addition, The Mercury News named them one of the Top 10 Bands at SXSW 2018. Also, renowned music critic and co-host of Sound Opinions Jim DeRogatis listed them as one of his Favorite New Musical Discoveries at SXSW 2018 that music lovers need to hear. Furthermore, Night Swimming landed on the NACC Top 100 for college radio.

DENTIST is Emily Bornemann (vocals, bass), Justin Bornemann (guitar) and Matt Hockenjos (drums).
