As a part of the featured band #2 The Dentals, I’d like to introduce you more and more to their music, and present you their album Tennesse, releasing May 25 2012. By the way, the interview with them

The Dentals: Tennessee

Genre: Indie, “Alco” Pop

The Dentals are a swiss band, formed in 2002, when they formed in the waiting room of a dentist. So, in their new album “Tennessee”, releasing May 25 2012, you can listen to impressive guitar solos, innovative song structures mixed with funny lyrics. Their music is a huge mix of acoustic pop, indie pop, and as they say theirselfs, “alco” pop. They are:

Fabio: the handsome (vocals, guitars)
Roman: the funny (guitars)
Dave: the intelligent (drums)
Jonas: the beard (bass)

They already had their first hit in 2006, when their song “Marry Wants To Marry Me” reached the download charts in Hong Kong for several weeks. Their new songs are also very catchy, and damn relaxed, some are even a bit calm. And really the best, they make you happy. Really! Here are again two of their songs:
