DENS have found a perfect niche in the space between energetic rock and contemplative ambience. They create an experience that drowns the listener in guitar-driven post-rock and vocal hooks while leaving plenty of room for lyrical exploration. From a wide view, DENS are a rock band, although the nuances in their sound send tendrils out into shoegaze, ambient, post-rock, and indie rock concepts. These subtleties put them right at home with Facedown labelmates My Epic, Everything In Slow Motion, and Comrades.
DENS find their mission in using music as a platform to creatively and honestly explore the themes of faith, hope, redemption and grace. The band self-released their debut From Small Seeds Come Giant Trees in 2016, and the single “Hopebringer” with Come&Live in 2017. Now Facedown Records has announced No Small Tempest, DENS’ highly anticipated four-song follow up to Small Seeds, releasing June 29.
