Something More is the new single from San Francisco’s bastions of dark, dynamic and danceable indie rock, Dangermaker. The track, which leads off their recently released Light The Dark I, serves as a signed testament to the timeless maturity and solidity of the band’s sound. Subdued, earnest verses transition seamlessly into the soaring glory of the resounding chorus, perfectly highlighting the rock anthem power that is a constant in Dangermaker’s output.
After lead singer Adam Burnett’s father suffered a fatal accident and suddenly passed away during the first week of tracking their debut album Black Dream, Adam, Carlos, Dave & Neko plunged into their art with urgency and a newfound lust for life, eventually emerging with a euphoric sound that defines their new releases on Breakup Records. Channeling a signature brand of dark indie pop ala early Killers, Phoenix, and White Lies has propelled the band forward to recent showcases at SXSW, CMJ and beyond.
“With catchy rock hooks and an indie pop vibe, Dangermaker creates a unique sound that infects your soul.” Tony DuShane, San Francisco Chronicle
“Driving percussion and moody, anxious guitar hooks (Interpol at their most danceable?) lay a bed for singer Adam Burnett’s plaintive wail, which — while Bowie comparisons are hard to live up to (and he gets them often enough) — has a way of sticking around your eardrums… like an adventure dream full of danger you can’t quite put your finger on, something hanging on the precipice of nightmare, but too interesting to make you want to wake up.” Emma Silvers, San Francisco Bay Guardian
“A sensational ride between dark and light… anthemic and dramatic tracks that find the rock outfit taking on a much more mature sound. There’s much more to expect from Dangermaker with their upcoming Light The Dark EP I release.” Victor Casillas Valle, The Bay Bridged [+]
