Dentist - "Upset Words"

Photo by Matthew Lyons
Despite hailing from Asbury Park, NJ (one of my personal favorite destinations), Dentist don't sound much like other New Jersey bands. They get called surf rock a lot, but maybe in that way the Pixies kind of had a little bit of a swirling surf rock sound. On their latest single, "Upset Words," Dentist have this incredibly upbeat, bouncy sound. It's pure indie pop rock, but with swirling guitars and a driving force propelling it forward faster than it sounds. It's a blissful fuzzed out romp with instruments seeming to be taking their own routes throughout the song. 

You can listen to "Upset Words" below. The new album from Dentist, Night Swimming, will be out July 20 on Cleopatra Records. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Dentist, be sure to check out their website.
