“Davey Dynamite is as political as he is emotional, and he brings it all to a volatile head on his first fully plugged in album “Holy Shit”. The songwriting is scalpel sharp, driven by politicized poetry performed with steadfast conviction. This is the folk-gone-electric lineage of O Pioneers! and Against Me!, born anew in the vein of Chicago punk. “Holy Shit” has sing-a-longs, shout-a-longs, and scream-a-longs, but its always more than just noise. It’s youthful and scrappy and bleeds with every cut.”

Description

Poppy folk punk goes full band on Davey Dynamite – Holy Shit. From Chicago, Davey crafts emotive and political punk with heavy influences of folk. Released December 2016 on Dying Scene Records/Don’t Panic Records & Distro – stream the full album here:


“Dynamite is clearly a very thoughtful and intelligent songwriter. His songs come across as hopeful yet world-weary, with a mix of youthful energy and lived-in maturity. They’re distinctly raw and personal, too, as if they have spent a lifetime being forged in his heart. The music itself is aided by bare-bones production that magnifies the potency of the songs, allowing them to burn brightly from their rough origins and feel well road-tested.” – Paul Carr, Pop Matters

“The sound on Holy Shit is the progeny of old folk punk gone electric bands like Against Me! as well as the throat-shredding punk rock of O Pioneers! If you listen closely, you can hear the folk punk skeletons, but they’ve been layered with electric muscle and tak-tak-tak drum beats that make these protest songs sound down right muscular. It’s the sheer energy of the musicianship that elevates the lyricism into something screamable, something that isn’t just a bought and sold commodity to listen to on a bus ride, but something you can believe in.” – Carson Winter, Dying Scene
