Daymoths is a two-piece pop-rock ensemble from the Twin Cities, Minnesota featuring Emily Dantuma on piano/organs and vocals and Ollie Dodge on drum kit and vocals.
This most recent endeavor in their careers has brought them to a stripped down, spacious sound. It is easy on the ears, but still carries hints of the edgy, experimental perspectives these two have become known for in larger bands throughout the past decade as members of Vox Vermillion, Company Inc., and Mr. Mustachio.
Sentimental, but not overly fluffed or cheesed out, solid groovable beats hold down driving piano riffs and meaty organ tones while Dantuma’s sweet serenade becomes a sirens wail at just the right moment.
"Back in Time" Daymoths debut full length album was released in December 2011. The studio album features some other outstanding musicians from the Twin Cities scene including Dustin Kiel on guitar, Lauren Gaffney on viola and Nikki Gunther on violin. After several outstanding full band performances at home, Daymoths toured throughout the southeast as a duo from January to April 2012, and again the following summer. Late in 2012, Daymoths released "Terrible Beauty" as a single to an upcoming sophomore album. The band is currently in the studio refining the newest songs, and playing select shows in the midwest.
