"Getting Down With Danke"

Debut albums can be tricky. At worst they can come off as amateur, poorly executed, and lacking a unified vision, and at best they present the full, unwavering image of an artist, thoroughly showcasing their strengths, and leaving the audience hungry for more. Venice Beach artist Danke’s debut, Mouth Confetti, is most certainly the latter.
Brimming with a sound that manages to be both sparse, and, at times, a bit abstract and jarring, while still being full, warm, and accessible, Mouth Confetti presents itself as wonderful introduction to the creatively diverse world of Danke. Drawing from styles as varied and contemporary pop and R&B and more minimalistic, yet lush, electronic music, with hints of psychedelia, Danke takes listeners on deep a journey through rich, ornate, and spacious soundscapes which seem to walk the line perfectly between the sharp, angular and the soft and delicate. It’s almost as if the music Danke creates is the sonic equivalent of a free, sunny, California spirit with a hard New York attitude and sensibility.
Recently, Yay! LA was able to catch up with Danke and hear all about the new record, creative process, and influences. Dig it! - Yay!LA

Bio

DANKE is an experimental electro-pop artist from Los Angeles, California. DANKE (Shane Allen) began making beats in 2006, refining her sound over the years while working as a back-up vocalist and collaborator for various projects. In 2015, DANKE released her debut album "mouth confetti", which she wrote, produced, performed and recorded at her home studio.

DANKE’s audience is immediately captivated by her engaging performance and unique vocal styling. Balanced delicately between a heavy intensity found in experimental garage rock and a soulful, haunting quality, heard in chill-inducing acoustic songwriting, DANKE has carved out a unique place in the electro-pop world.

As DANKE continues to write, produce and perform, her sound steadily challenges what we think of as the typical electronic artist. As the front man of her invisible, synthesized band, her infectious on-stage presence is palatable in it's authenticity and commitment. All who attend DANKE shows are fans in waiting.​
