Sounds Like: Hip Hop with a pop groove.
“We started out as a groove band, and then we went into pop songs, then we kind of came back into groove song [with the EP Memory Chrome]”
“’Wouldn’t it be crazy and revolutionary if we did hip-hop, with a live band’… Then we didn’t talk about it for four year”
The DownBeat Keys formed at Day Hamilton College their senior year to create a live, hip-hop band.
“The sound of it, the syllables, and to be able to use letters, DBK.”
