HOMETOWN: New York, New York
GENRE: Indie rock
LATEST RELEASE: Electric Toys (2010)
WHY YOU’LL LOVE THEM: The Dig don’t get along with name tags. Their debut does flirt with the style and grace of a few alternative rock wonders, but their influences help create an intriguing vibe designed for toe-tappers and hip-swayers. Few bands can place blues rock alongside indie sub genres but The Dig do it well, provoking a clash of music that’s sexy (“Two Sisters In Love”), entrancing (“Penitentiary”) and, wait for it… original.
SOUNDS LIKE: The Strokes lathered in blues rock sweat.
