If you’re looking for fresh and funky new tunes that feel like a throwback, check out Disco Risqué’s D3P. In just three tracks, Disco Risqué charms the listener with their retro but modern energy.
The Charlottesville, Va.-based band’s self-proclaimed mission is “to take over the world one sweaty, borderline-psychotic music lover at a time,” something they are surely accomplishing with their energetic mix of rock, funk, hip-hop, hardcore, and pop.
They wrapped up their 2019 tour before the coronavirus pandemic, and have shows planned for the rest of the year. Check them out next on August 27 at Pearl Street Warehouse.
D3P is bright, funky, and unique. The assortment and range of instruments makes the sound really special, especially the use of horns, which adds a vintage touch to the modern tracks. The energetic tracks remain danceable even through its borderline aggressive sound.
Fans of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong or The Disco Biscuits should check out Disco Risqué for their high-energy, compelling sound.
