DANKS: IN ALRIGHT
The Danks are yet another Canadian indie band export that has jumped on our radar aye. Three Toronto bar vets who have been friends since 6th grade and are a boot playing power pop garage rock with a fun party vibe. Lots of hooks and fast drums with some Julian Casablanca’s drawl. Its a Canadian version of the Strokes but with more power pop harmonies. What makes it good is that its still indie and raw and hasnt been cleaned up by a major label yet. The new EP is “In Alright” and this is the first video for the album. A catchy track you might be humming later but not the best on the album. “Squealor” and “Little ’94” are much more interesting songs to check out. The Danks gear up for a month-long national tour with Two Hours Traffic and Hey Rosetta! this Fall.
