Bio: Like being hit by a grand piano filled with sprinkled donut holes, then scraped off the pavement by your grandmother's pet raccoon. DEN left their base in Los Angeles for a national tour in fall 2008, and have recently released their debut LP, "Hence The Boats", recorded in Austin, Texas.
“Currently touring the U.S. to promote their debut 'Caddywhompus EP', Los Angeles based indie rock band DEN draws from an array of influences. They play the sort of upbdeat, groovy rock and roll that reminds me of some of my favorites, old and new - the Pixies, Phil Collins, the Decemberists. The list can go on. While their sound might not be particularly distinctive - at least, not yet - it is by no means boring, either. Lead vocalist Andres Arazoza's impassioned, raspy vocals bring each song to life atop a layered, instrumentally diverse, jazzy rock blend.”
