It's called Future Brite. Demander keeps good company, touring with the likes of The Hold Steady, Art Brut and New Model Army. The trio's "rolling freak out" is ruled by a positive and adventurous spirit that can be seen in their live shows and heard in their recordings. Their sophomore release, Future Brite, is due out this summer and features the anthemic "Books," recently remixed by electro-pop duo Shy Child. "I could approximate Demander's sound by describing the NYC trio as Tom Waits with surf rhythms and blistering female vocals, at times edging on melodicore, driving a speeding runaway train of adventure rock with vivid, emotive vocals. My roommate calls the band, "Yeah Yeah Yeahs on prog(?) pills, exuberant but kinda gloomy, Sergio Leone dramatics + NYC guitar rock." So I guess "cross-genre" would be an accurate descriptor; I feel guilty about making comparisons.
Demander has its own sound, touching on so many different reference points – Las Vegas, Victorian London, Saturday morning cartoons, spaghetti westerns – that the band makes one question the point of criticism at all." -Deli Magazine "It's music with sick beats, high energy, attitude, affection, and promise. Think of that feeling when you find $20 in your pocket, that's what Demander is." - Meik! Meik! Blog Read more on Last.fm.
