Listen, Dammit, has a fondness for band names that incorporate other artists’ names: Ringo Deathstarr, for example, or (and we know this one’s not real) Kathleen Turner Overdrive. So it’s a given that we like Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., too.
The Detroit duo, whose members count themselves as fans of their NASCAR racing namesake, makes quirky alt-pop music with colorful synthesizers mixed with guitars and layers of vocals. The band’s sound is sometimes described as a weird combination of hip-hop and folk, but there’s no need to categorize it. Just listen.
