“IAMDYNAMITE have carved deeper into their unique style, blending elements from their musical roots of Seattle sound and 80s pop.“ – Earmilk
“Ridiculously good… The songwriting is light years beyond their debut.” – Pop Dose
“Infectiously catchy hooks that pair atmospheric synths” – The Joy of Violent Movement
” IAMDYNAMITE are back, and they’ve done a complete 180 – making an 80s-inspired slow burn record that comes off as Sting & Oates.” – A-Sides with Jon Chattman
Michigan-based IAMDYNAMITE announce slew of new tour dates in support of its forthcoming new album Wasa Tusa (out August 7th on Brando Records) and reveal a new cut from the album.
The tour sees the duo of Chris Martin and Chris Phillips hitting the road across the U.S. from August through October playing such venerable venues as NYC’s Webster Hall, House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, Chicago’s Bottom Lounge and many more. A full list of dates can be found below.
The guitar-driven tension of “Bloom” bursts forth much like the name of the track implies. Premiering today, it’s the second cut revealed from IAMDYNAMITE’s sophomore album Wasa Tusa and follows the lead album track “Be There” which recently premiered via EARMILK.
Drawing inspiration from 80’s pop pioneers such as The Police and Hall & Oates to early 2000 nu-rave revivalists such as Klaxons and Simian Mobile Disco, IAMDYNAMITE’s synth-driven rock and alt-pop hooks are as danceable as they are delicious.
Wasa Tusa, set for release on August 7 via Brando Records sees IAMDYNAMITE expanding their repertoire and experimenting in the studio to create a new brand of freewheeling pop. Produced by Matt Novesky, the album highlights their melodic, hook laden songwriting skills and delivers a swift emotional punch.
