pop / rock / songs


The Belgian band Dans Dans delivers an exuberant and improvisational approach to existing patterns and its own compositions. Breaking free from recognizable melodies, the fantastic themes throw you into a world bursting with strange colors.

In any case, the press have found it a real challenge to label their music: garage jazz, psychedelic blues, ecstatic noir soundtracks, spacy rock ‘n’ roll… After three succesfull albums they have a new one coming (label Unday Records/N.E.W.S.).


All the musicians are also enjoying individual success with other projects. Guitarist Bert Dockx is the founder of Flying Horseman and recently started his own Dutch-language project Strand. Bassist Fred Lyenn (Lyenn) shared the limelight with Marc Ribot and Mark Lanegan. Drummer Steven Cassiers has been collaborating with Dez Mona among others. Dans Dans is a true live band brimming with creative talent.
