Compressing a cluster of influences stemming from Don Broco and Bring Me The Horizon to The 1975, DOHNY JEP are certainly a fresh and animated take on alternative rock pop. With solid grooves, driving guitar work and infectious hooks, DOHNY JEP are braced to soar with the release of their debut album, L.U.S.T, which arrives on Friday 10th July. The contagious quartet have also just revealed their stunning new single and video for the track, Dreamer – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHDuQZqUXGM .
Hailing from Kent and formed at the start of 2019 by Pete Herbert (bass and vocals) and Stuart Day (guitar and vocals), the dynamic duo set about to craft something different from their previous musical endeavors. Aiming to infuse their material with pop synth melodies, groove and edgy guitar riffs, after many months of rehearsals and songwriting sessions, the twosome finally clicked on a gripping robust sound. The pair began to demo tracks and built their very own recording studio, and subsequently drafted in Rhys May, assistant producer to Dan Lancaster (Bring Me The Horizon, Don Broco, One Ok Rock, While She Sleeps), to commence intense work on the band’s debut album. After nearly twelve months of work, the guys finally completed their new record, L.U.S.T, and it’s an absolute firecracker. The record is loaded with eight bangers that will bed deep into your aural senses.
Things could only get better when, upon completion of the album, the band expanded out to a four-piece with the recruitment of Rowan Tremain (drums) and Wayne Ambrose (guitar) to create a quartet with a fully fleshed sound that is ripe for the live arena. With early support from BBC Introducing Kent, and with live shows in the pipeline for the Summer and beyond, Dohny Jep plan to make big waves in the UK and further afield.
