Trucker hats, glam guitars, dancing hipsters, vintage synthesizers, rave scene romances, Detroit break beats...and that's just the first song on the new, full length CD from Draw Tippy. This self-titled debut is crammed with melodic modern rock anthems seriously hooked on the 80's and yet it's so much more. It's Brooklyn Electro Clash for fans of Britney Spears. It's moody British Synthpop for fans of Weezer. It's D.C. Skater Punk for fans of Brian Wilson.
Lyrically, Draw Tippy muses about the highs and lows of modern love, the pains of growing up and the rigors of being oneself. Entertaining and twisted with honesty, each story unfolds like a juicy phone conversation with a really good friend.
Musically, Draw Tippy has meticulously crafted hooks that stay in your head like that deadbeat friend who crashes on your couch and won't leave. Crunchy guitars, sing-a-long choruses, tight harmonies and analog blips, beeps and sweeps populate every song and only when called for.
So who is this Draw Tippy anyway? Well, it's actually just Dave Pachence. Poster boy for the do-it-yourself musician, Dave locked himself away in his NYC loft with a little gear and a lot of determination. A year later he emerged with a beard and thirteen completed songs he wrote, sang, performed, arranged and recorded himself.
Dave has taken a wide range of life experiences including child actor, Dead Head and advertising copywriter and blended them with his obsession for music. The result is hopefully something that sounds like nothing you've ever heard.
The new, self-titled, self-released CD from Draw Tippy is a must listen for anyone fond of ultra-catchy, mega-hooky, super-memorable, alternative pop. Never pretentious, never obtuse, never boring, just Draw Tippy.
