Manchester-based Dantevilles have released their brand new single, ‘Graffiti’, via Heist or Hit. The indie outfit have attracted the most attention and praise from NME and BBC Radio 1 (Huw Stephens), spending the past year refining their live presence.
Dantevilles are Jamie Gallagher (guitar, vocals), Connor McNicholas (bass, vocals), Paul Tanton (guitar) and Cory Devine (drums), and with ‘Graffiti’ draw immediate comparisons to The Maccabees, although the dueling lead vocals remind me of the recent Dutch Uncles in ‘Big Balloon’. A distinctive sound permeates the track, crafting a sound that represents the band’s own indie signature.
Discussing the track, the quartet said: “Graffiti is all about escapism. The actual art form of graffiti is about expression with the ability to stay discrete. It’s something completely original, individual and non-conformist. It can be whatever the listeners want to draw relations to. Be that love, lust or travel. The song is about standing out above everyone else”.
