Is Joe Jonas’ DNCE Your New Favourite Band?

Joe Jonas is making his return to the music charts with a few non-relatives. The former Jonas Brother has just released his first single Cake By The Ocean with the newly formed DNCE, a foursome that describe themselves as ‘your new favourite band’.

Comprised of bassist Cole Whittle (Semi-Precious Weapons), drummer Jack Lawless (former Jonas Brothers drummer), guitarist JinJoo Lee (Jordin Sparks, Ciara, Jonas Brothers), and Jonas on vocals, the newly formed quartet are the latest group to bring together dance, pop and electronica.

#CakeByTheOcean Premieres tonight 7pm on @Z100NewYork

DNCE are filling in the hole left by Foster The People, with Jonas’ knack for writing catchy earworms still going strong. The new single is the first original piece we’ve heard from Jonas since his 2011 solo album Fastlife, which featured strong singles, but failed to impress on the charts.

The new band already has some very famous fans, including Ciara and Jonas’ model girlfriend, Gigi Hadid.

Cake By The Ocean premiered on radio last night and while it may be too soon to proclaim DNCE as our favourite band, we are definitely loving what we’re hearing so far.
