Asbury Park Surf Punks Release Their First Ever Animated Video

Dentist (band) teams up with local brewery to promote new single

ASBURY PARK, NJ / MAY 14, 2021 - Coming off of their February release of “Don’t Let Me Catch You,” along with a hilariously twisted video that fans of the band’s dark humor found comfortingly familiar, DENTIST  has prepped the release of another new single that takes its emotional content a little more seriously and straight-faced. “Let Me Let Go” is a reverb drenched tune that kicks in with bouncy indie pop and explodes into fuzzed out garage rock by the first chorus. The video, directed by Mat Hale of Image 8 Nineteen brings the lyrics and energy of the track to life in a surreal world of anxiety and uncertainty.

“For this single, we thought the best way to capture the emotions of the song was through the medium of animation. This allowed us to not be limited by the restrictions of the physical world around us, especially in the current state of distress.”

And if that doesn’t sound serious enough, the band have also teamed up with Point Pleasant, NJ’s Last Wave Brewery, releasing a beer to compliment their next release. Let Go IPA is a double dry hopped NEIPA, dripping with notes of tropical, candied fruit with a stone fruit finish and a soft, pillowy, hazy body. The beer is now available at select bars and liquor along the Jersey Shore as of release day, Thursday, May 6th.

"We are stoked to have our own signature beer! The can art is artwork taken directly from the video for Let Me Let Go."

Thanks to tight chemistry, killer hooks, and a distinctive sound that’s both lo-fi and retro-pop smooth, New Jersey’s Dentist have managed to stand out amid a sea of like-minded musical acts.” - The AV Club “Dentist make beachy guitar music sound so good you’ll think it’s just as easy to play.” - Noisey “Dentist have precision and technicality that borders on math rock, but they also know how to temper their musicality for deft various of energy and aesthetic.” - Stereogum
