DNCE is a musical injection to lift the spirits.
No matter your age, everyone begins to move their feet when they hear the beats of this new group led by Joe Jonas. Their single "Cake By The Ocean" has more than 180 million views on YouTube and continues to dominate Spotify and iTunes charts as an arguable song of the summer. Amid a pop landscape largely dominated by reunions this group that prints a fresh sound arose. We chatted with Joe Jonas and Cole Whittle, who along with Jack Lawless and JinJoo Lee make up the group that on stage have great chemistry.
Stunned with success?
Jonas: It has been incredible! I think we've been musicians all our lives and you know, the feeling of being together, the public reacts quickly and "Cake By The Ocean" has reached, literally, the entire world so quickly. We feel fortunate and happy, and that only makes us want to work harder because we want to be a band forever, we want to stay around for a long time.
What is the greatest gift that this band has given you?
Jonas: I think it has brought us much happiness in our lives, it’s something all of us have always wanted to do; create music with great friends and enjoy doing it, with no pressure and no worries, we're just having a good time.
How serious are you when making music?
Jonas: I think we are very serious when music is concerned. We are happy people and we have a good time but in the end we have dedicated our lives to become musicians and make music to reach large audiences and to be able to play in large venues and stadiums, we have worked all our lives for it. Therefore, no one takes our music as seriously as we do.
Some people would say that DNCE is a band that will not last very long, what do you think of that?
Jonas: Tell them to talk to us in 10 years (laughs).
