ASBURY PARK, NJ – – Upbeat, melodic and fuzzed out indie rock trio DENTIST released its new single “Check the Calendar” today. The song made its debut earlier this week on The Big Takeover and is now available worldwide. Their forthcoming album Making A Scene will be released on September 2nd via Cleopatra Records.
Also, Dentist will be closing out summer with a couple festival performances including Sea.Hear.Now Festivaland The Philly 10K. In the meantime, fans can pre-save or preorderthe album on limited edition pink vinyl or CD.
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.
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.
