The Dandelions embody a new genre writers are dubbing “Classic Indie,” Jesse Northey and his trio have channeled the catchy right-beside-your-ear songwriting and roped it onto the lulling guitar arpeggios of early Pedro and The Lion, The Shins, Death Cab For Cutie, and so on.”

Biography

Jesse and the Dandelions are a 4 piece art/space pop band based in Edmonton Alberta, led by Jesse Northey (Producer,Engineer)

After a short but successful figure skating career, Jesse retired and committed his life to music full time. The band has been active in Western Canada for the last 5 years with success on campus community radio, and great opening slots for bands like Attack In Black, Hollerado, and July Talk.With Jesse and the Dandelions’ production values maturing alongside the content, their album A Mutual Understanding (2013) is enriched with classic synth and drum machine textures that pays respect to the past, while forging their own unique path forward. String sections and heavily layered vocal harmonies push accessible pop hooks into more psychedelically complex and intriguing harmonic territory that rewards repeat listeners by continuing to engage them fully with each spin.

Recent highlights have included showcases at Breakout West,Canadian Music Week, JUNOfest, Sled Island, a 3 piece performance of The Flaming Lips “The Soft Bulletin, and the release of a biographical comic book.

Their 3rd full length “True Blue” will be released in September 2016 and aims to create a cacophonous blend of noise and meticulously layered melody and harmony. Extra features will include a figure skating music video, and 80’s themed infomercial and a Canada wide tour.

Jesse and the Dandelions consists of Jesse Northey(Guitar,Vox) Tasy Hudson (Drums) Dean Kheroufi(Bass), and Cayley Thomas(Keys/Vox).
