Song Of The Day: "Cake By The Ocean" by DNCE

Hey guys!

No matter how old we get, we will always mature. 
Our taste will change eventually and we will find new things we like.
And I think that's a beautiful thing.

Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while (more like - for a long time), will know that the band that really got me into music was the Jonas Brothers. Yeah, really.
Over the years my taste has changed a lot; I've gone from enjoying pop music to finding my love for acoustic, folk and rock. 

Just a few weeks ago I found out about a new band called DNCE (yes, that's dance without the "a"). 
One of the members is Joe Jonas, yes, one brother of the Jonas Brothers.

Of course I was pretty curious what his new project would sound like, so I gave DNCE a listen.
And I was very surprised.

DNCE is a four piece outfit based in Los Angeles, US. 
The band found together through a couple connections and is now here to share their alternative, funk music with us. 

DNCE consists of:
Joe Jonas (vocals)
JinJoo Lee (guitar)
Cole Whittle (bass, keyboard)
Jack Lawless (drums

DNCE's first single "Cake By The Ocean" is a funky and very groovy track. 
The instrumental itself is just as catchy as the lyrics are; the funky guitar riff compliments the very lively bass line.
The drum part is kept very straight forward - it's simple, yet it ties the song together in such clever manner. It invites you to dance (no pun intended) and have a good time.

Lyrically "Cake By The Ocean" is no masterpiece, but it's a fun song. You'll be able to sing along quickly and just have a good time. 
Joe's vocals deliver the track in the right way and fit the whole "carefree, sunshine vibe" DNCE is going for.

If Summer wasn't over already, "Cake By The Ocean" would be the perfect soundtrack for it.
