Originating from Edinburgh, Dan brought the band together through a mutual love of synth-pop, eighties no-wave and sparse film scores. Their resultant sound effortlessly blends elements of all three.
Having already built up a reputation around the capital for their captivating live shows, which include 3D installations, Dems spread their wings earlier this year to make the pilgrimage to Texas for the South by South West showcase. Needless to say, their uniquely British sound went down a storm.
The band have since received support from the PRS for Music Foundation Momentum Fund to help produce and promote their debut album Muscle Memory, which will be released on 3 November.
They join other artists including Amplify Dot, FEMME and Public Service Broadcasting who have each received between £5,000 and £15,000 in the latest round of funding.
