The Danks

Charlottetown, PEI, Canada

Title: Summer Lovin

Genre: Rock

The Danks are drifters with a purpose. Driven by the desire to be the most recondite band on the eastern seaboard, they deliver yet another album (their second) worthy of Brooklyn’s yellow pages with the June 11, 2013 release of GANK. The songs that don’t get your head banging will make you want to rip off your unitard. Recorded under threat of a global cooling in Toronto’s Kensington Market, this displaced PEI quartet pounded out, amongst other things, their unflinchingly catchy sophomore album. Recruiting Toronto’s Jay-boy Jeff McMurrich (Fucked Up, Constantines, Owen Pallett) to man the mics and Ian McGettigan (Stars, Sloan) to fondle the faders, the anti-workaday foursome bashed out eleven no-nonsense pop blasts that barely clock in at thirty minutes.
