The Dig

Air Date: 09-05-14

New York quartet The Dig have been building some buzz from their first two full-lengths of ’80s shoegaze-inspired rock. It’s a Cure-meets-T. Rex sound that utilizes dark keyboards, with enough reverb to drown Robert Smith. You & I marks the band’s third release in two years (following last year’s full-length, Midnight Flowers, and their first 2013 EP, Tired Hearts), those sets comprising an impressive sum of 21 consistently nocturnal and sedated songs. - Consequence of Sound

The Dig’s sound has been developing ever since the band’s two singers Emile Mosseri and David Baldwin started making music together when they were eleven years old. After meeting California native Erick Eiser, the three songwriters have been writing tunes and playing in different bands together since they were in high school. Mark Demiglio (drums) moved to New York from Texas to join the band following the recording of “Midnight Flowers.”
