Portland-based band, Dana Buoy are set to release their forthcoming album Ice Glitter Gold on February 23 on Everloving.
Dana Buoy also announced shows in Portland, Seattle and a performance at Boise’s Treefort Festival in support of the forthcoming release. All upcoming shows are listed below.
Ice Glitter Gold, is equal parts lusty and lysergic. Helmed by songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Dana Janssen (Akron/Family) with long-time collaborator Justin Miller, Dana Buoy deliver a sweaty, late-night pop record with analogue 4 on the floor heartbeats throbbing at the center.
Written from the cold comfort of the Oregon coast, the blank canvas of the dark Pacific Ocean served as inspiration for a chilly and concise blend of French Touch inflected West Coast crunch, bolstered by moonlit variations on the tropicore pop heard on previous releases Summer Bodies and Preacher. The album was recorded in Portland and New York, with production by Janssen, John Morgan Askew and Abe Seiferth at Flora Recording & Playback, Scenic Burrows, and Transmitter Park Studios.
On Ice Glitter Gold, Janssen and Miller’s digital/analog interplay creates its own language of crisp electronics and guitars, writhing together to create languid dance grooves that switch easily between moments of exuberant, open heartedness and woozy, hallucinatory introspection.
