DNCE doesn’t fool around. Their motto is “Your New Favorite Band,” and they called their first string of gigs “The Greatest Tour Ever, Tour.” The Cali quartet always backs up that kind of playful bravado, weaving elements of pop, electro, and R&B together until something crazy happens. Joe Jonas, the group’s singer, had been dreaming of this project for years, and set about making it a reality soon after the Jonas Brothers called it quits in 2013. The DNCE squad has a lot of experience to draw on. Guitarist JinJoo toured with Charli XCX and CeeLo Green, bassist/keyboardist Cole Whittle was a member of Semi Precious Weapons, and drummer Jack Lawless worked on the road with Team Jonas. But these pros also excel at bringing the fun: “We really want this to feel like a party,” Jonas says. Need proof? Check the video for “Cake By the Ocean.” We want you guys to see DNCE in action – that’s the best way to fall for ‘em. That’s why we’re presenting our new LIFT artist at Holocene in Portland, Oregon on March 13, and filming it all so we can bring it to you later. For now, check DNCE’s videos, and their fantastic EP, SWAAY. We’ll have more stuff for you soon.

Vevo’s LIFT program began in January of 2011 as a way of celebrating new talent. We pride ourselves on introducing emerging artists to a broader audience, and each LIFT cycle paints a detailed portrait so viewers get a grip on the artist’s creativity. Through exclusive interviews, behind-the scenes footage, video premieres, and great performances - all exclusive to the Vevo platform – we unite the artist and the audience. LIFT is powered by McDonald’s!
