Album Review: DNCE's Debut LP 'DNCE' Is Definitely A Jam-Packed Party Playlist!

By  January 13, 2017

The name practically says it all.

DNCE has taken over the music charts by storm with each single they have released and their self-titled debut LP DNCE is a body of work of 14 songs that basically takes a loud hailer and yells in your ear that the band will not be going anywhere else anytime soon.

Back in October of 2015, the American dance-rock band has definitely left their mark in the music industry with their first EP SWAAY which produced two super successful singles Cake by the Ocean and Toothbrush. But now, the four piece group has surely made a name for themselves and makes it is clear that they are a force to be reckoned with.

Their self-titled studio album includes three tracks from their EP plus eleven new songs for the world to hear and know for themselves that the band is not just a one-trick pony. The MTV Video Music Award's Best New Artist for 2016 can perform not just dance-orientated songs but they show another side to them by gifting us with slower jams like Truthfully and Almost.

If you want people to remember your name, having a self-titled album is not enough. You need a song named after you as well. DNCE was very cleverly written. The lyrics of the song not only included the band's name but also gave an insight to the inspiration behind their name while giving it a little story line.

The multi-talented frontman of DNCE, Joe Jonas, not only has an incredible high range that can be heard in Zoom but he also co-wrote every track on the standard edition of the album. This album consists of songs like Toothbrush, Good Day and Pay My Rent that talk about some of life's situations but they were given very unique concepts that were written in an unusual and interesting way.

So if you ever need a playlist for whatever party you're at, don't even bother having a customised playlist. All you need to do is to bump the entire DNCE album to have a blast!
