The Denzels

The Denzels introduce Admirable Traits + open for The Vaccines

Here's to the start of a sweet day for The Denzels; on this September 11th they're taking part in the first steps of a new Brooklyn-based record label, Admirable Traits, whose first release will be their second EP 'Easy Tiger'. Revealed in January, the five track-set of fuzzy garage-pop romance floats quite casually between surfing harmonies and noise, working its best moves right at the heart of this gap, where young love tales stay away from cheese, and dramatic synth lines can come glistening through without any of it feeling too nostalgic or too.. gleeful. Taking the release celebrations to the stage, they'll be opening for The Vaccines this evening at The Music Hall of Williamsburg.

Weekly Feature: The Denzels play The Deli's B.E.A.F. Indie Rock Stage on May 25

Formerly called The Goods, The Denzels, invigorated with the name change, are ready to kick ass and take names with their dangerously addictive music. The songs are absolutely pop at heart with endearing hooks and jangly guitars, but there’s an edge that makes them emanate a New York kind of cool. The music is by no means a daunting or pretentious hipness, as the tunes are astoundingly accessible with vintage elements from yesteryear; they cite The Smiths and ‘50s girl groups as influences while pulling in modern peers such as Deerhunter into the mix. The quintet sounds like a more punk-spiked, less distorted version of The Strokes - check out the band’s latest EP, "Easy Tiger," which is generously offered for free on Bandcamp. The five tracks are a clarified, upbeat amalgamation of pop and rock music from the ‘50s to the present day. - Read Nancy Chow's interview with the band here. See The Denzels live at The Deli's B.E.A.F.on May 25 at Spike Hill with The Can't Tells, Big Ups and more.
