Nashville indie-poppers DE NOVO DAHL list a boatload of influences on their MySpace page. Here are the B's: BOWIE, BEACH BOYS, BLUR, BUZZCOCKS, (B)EN FOLDS, PET SHOP (B)OYS. And the S's: (S)TEVIE WONDER, SUPER FURRY ANIMALS, SUPERGRASS, SUPREMES. (In a pinch, I'd list the two "Super" groups as most representative of the DND sound.)
The first two songs below are taken from De Novo Dahl's second LP, MOVE EVERY MUSCLE, MAKE EVERY SOUND, which dropped in March.
