NAMED ONE OF THE “TOP 10 BANDS AT SXSW 2018” BY THE MERCURY NEWS, THE BAND IS BACK TO AUSTIN WHERE WE MET THEM. DENTIST IS A FEMALE FRONTED INDIE SURF TRIO FROM ASBURY PARK, NY. HERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT THEM!
Who is Dentist?
Dentist is: Emily Bornemann, Bass and Vocals; Justin Bornemann, Guitar and Matt Hockenjos, Drums.
Where does your stage name come from?
When we first started the band it was a side project. We weren’t taking it seriously at first, just something to do for fun, and we thought Dentist was a funny name, and also one of the first that came in our heads. Now that we do take it seriously, we still like it, but maybe not the best name for google searches etc.
Three words to descrive your music.
Indie. Surf. Punk
Do you have a ritual before going on stage?
Yes, trying to find the right amount of beers to drink not getting too drunk to play!
What’s your main goal for this year?
Play as much as possible and promote our last album ‘Night Swimming’. Gonna continue to write and record for a 2020 release.
How was your SXSW?
It was awesome this year! We played 7 shows, ate some good food, hung out with friends, got some swag, and had a big party more or less.
