The Dense Concert

Date : 28th Nov 2020

The Dense Invercargill three-piece, The Dense, display youthful enthusiasm mixed with mature musicality on their latest release, “There’s no one new around you”.

Described in the media as “alternative rock” when they took out the Southland Heats at the SmokeFree RockQuest last year, a closer listen to this release reveals a musical diversity that belies that description. Certainly, there’s an overall rock feel to the tracks, but there’s also a great ‘70s punk sneer with a subtle Celtic lilt, overdriven Delta Blues riffs and rhythms merging effortlessly into surfing soul, and all tied in with a respectful nod to local legends like Pretty Wicked Head & The Desperate Men.
