Dohny Sep Release Anthem New Single, ‘Wine And Dine’

Following up on the 2022 release of their self-titled album, comes ‘Wine and Dine’, the latest single from Kent-based alternative-rock trio Dohny Jep, released today.

After forming in 2019 as a core songwriting duo, Dohny Jep self-released their much celebrated debut album L.U.S.T in July 2020, and after playing just one show together as a band, with a third member in tow, the tours they’d had planned throughout the year were put on pause.  

They instead self-built a home studio and turned their attention to recording, dedicating themselves to putting out four EP’s throughout the course of 2021, receiving critical acclaim from the likes of Upset Magazine, Emerging Rock Bands Magazine, Headliner Magazine and Amazon Music. These in turn, combined to create their second studio album, self titled in January of 2022.

Speaking about the single, vocalist Pete Herbert states, “Wine and Dine in its purest form is about love. It’s about those first moments of meeting someone new and the adventures that you are about to go on together, but also those first moments of conflict and how you pull together to get through those harder moments.”

Dohny Jep Announce Fourth And Final EP For 2021

Kent-based alternative-rock three-piece Dohny Jep began as a duo in early 2019, with Stuart and Pete deciding to create something unlike anything either of them had done before in previous bands and projects. With their unique video concepts and mesh of pop-synth melodies and rock guitars, they did just that.  Fast forward one year and with an additional member in tow, the group self-released their much celebrated debut album L.U.S.T in July 2020.

After playing just one show together as a band, they had tours planned throughout 2020 to coincide with the release of their debut album, but as the Coronavirus put a halt to any plans of playing their new material live, they headed back to the studio to record more new music. 

Following up on this year’s three previous successful EP releases, ‘Smile, it Might Never Happen’, ‘Shallow Is The Water’ and ‘This Is Love’, comes their fourth and final EP of 2021 ‘No More Love’, due for release November 26th via Favour The Brave Records. 

Recorded at their recently-built home studio and produced, mixed and mastered by Rhys May (Bring Me The Horizon, Don Broco, While She Sleeps), No More Love was lyrically inspired by the fear of change and the long, tumultuous journey towards acceptance and moving on.  No More Love sees the band pairing punchy indie rock with subtle electronic flourishes, pop melodies and danceable grooves.

Prior to the release comes the EP’s leading single ‘Dial Up’, due for release November 12th, which explores how the modern age of technology has become the everyday person’s main source of success and self-destruction.

No More Love is due to be released on November 26th 2021 via Favour the Brave Records and will be available on all major platforms.

EP Review – Dohny Jep – This Is Live

Kent-based alternative-rock three-piece Dohny Jep began as a duo in early 2019, with Stuart and Pete deciding to create something unlike anything either of them had done before in previous bands and projects. With their unique video concepts and mesh of pop-synth melodies and rock guitars, they did just that.  Fast forward one year and with an additional member in tow, the group self-released their much celebrated debut album L.U.S.T in July 2020.

After playing just one show together as a band, they had tours planned throughout 2020 to coincide with the release of their debut album, but as the Coronavirus put a halt to any plans of playing their new material live, they headed back to the studio to record more new music. 

Following up on this year’s previous two successful EP releases, ‘Smile, it Might Never Happen’, and ‘Shallow Is The Water’, comes their third EP of 2021 ‘This Is Love’, due for release August 27th via Favour The Brave Records. 

Recorded at their recently-built home studio and produced, mixed and mastered by Rhys May (Bring Me The Horizon, Don Broco, While She Sleeps), the EP sees the band reflecting on their own personal journeys through life and the many complexities that it has involved; exploring past regrets, wasted time and confronting toxic relationships. 

Prior to the release comes the EP’s leading single ‘Two Left Feet’, due for release July 2nd. The track, a love letter to the nights out that are just close enough to touch this Summer, sees the band experiment with a grungy, heavier sound before giving way to their signature pop vocals. 

Kicking off the EP rifining their Alt-Rock driven style in a track that wastes little time showcasing just who the band are. With the EP’s opener, ‘Wake.Make.Break the power hungry guitar and large sounding atmosphere pairs perfectly with the rock progressions and is cathartic to a t. For me as well, the track sounds as of it’s a cross of ‘The Safety Dance’ (Men Without Hats) and ‘Shh!’ (Stand Atlantic) but it’s a huge track which is just so fun to listen to.

Moving straight into TWO LEFT FEET, it’s a dial up to eleven with he more vicious rock track and complete left turn from the opener.This is the stuff some mosh pits were made of which feels relentless in parts where it’s melodic approach is solid.

Heading into ‘I’M BORED’, you can tell the band have taken a more dark and brooder spin of things where you’re taken for a loop which just makes it all the more exciting to be listening to. Everything they’re doing just adds another layer to the bands sound with the stomping guitars and more punk progression adds passion to the band and have a soundscape any band would be proud of.

Lastly for ‘LIVING THE DREAM’ it just gets straight into things. More credit to the band, there’s not been a rise and fall aspect to the EP too much but when it does happen it just immediately goes right back to the best of things, especially where the acoustic in the track fit in so perfectly it contrasts the harder parts of the track to leave you quite astonished.

Dohny Jep continue to keep their heads above ground and outdo themselves on their latest effort where it’s some of the best material of theirs to date and we cannot wait to hear more.

Rating:4/5.

Single Review – Dohny Jep – Fade

Kent-based alternative-rock four-piece Dohny Jep began as a duo in early 2019, with Stuart and Pete deciding to create something unlike anything either of them had done before in previous bands and projects. With their unique video concepts and mesh of pop-synth melodies and rock guitars, they did just that.  Fast forward one year and with an additional two members in tow, the group self-released their much celebrated debut album L.U.S.T in July 2020.

After playing just one show together as a band, they had tours planned throughout 2020 to coincide with the release of their debut album, but as the Coronavirus put a halt to any plans of playing their new material live, they headed back to the studio to record more new music. 

Following up on the February release of their EP ‘Smile, It Might Never Happen’, comes their second EP of 2021 ‘Shallow Is The Water’, due for release May 28th via Favour The Brave Records.

Recorded at their recently-built home studio and produced, mixed and mastered by Rhys May (Bring Me The Horizon, Don Broco, While She Sleeps), the EP explores the subjects of change, self-reflection and past mistakes.
Prior to the release comes the EP’s leading single ‘Fade’.

Commenting on the track the band state: “Fade is about people who are so fixated on how they look and what they want other people to see, social media sometimes brings out the worst in us. We don’t accept the flaws that we have and feign perfection.”

Fade is a more soft sounding self reflection track for the band to start with. Heading into the deeper section further in, that is where meat of the track lives. In addition there’s a little sprinkle of Don Broco influence you can hear in the breakdown but Dohny Jep manage to make ‘Shallow Is The Water’ their own where they start to find their own identity. It’s a trippy self reflective piece and one you’ll become addicted to as you await their upcoming EP.

Rating: 3/5.

EP Review – Dohny Jep – Smile, It Might Never Happen

Kent-based alternative-rock four-piece Dohny Jep began as a duo in early 2019, with Stuart and Pete deciding to create something unlike anything either of them had done before in previous bands and projects. With their unique video concepts and mesh of pop-synth melodies and rock guitars, they did just that.  Fast forward one year and with an additional two members in tow, the group self-released their much celebrated debut album L.U.S.T in July 2020.

Since the release the band have amassed over 50,000 streams on Spotify, received regular airplay from Hard Rock Hell Radio and BBC Introducing as well as glowing reviews from the likes of Dead Press and Distorted Sound. 

After playing just one show together as a band, they had tours planned throughout 2020 to coincide with the release of their debut album, but as the Coronavirus put a halt to any plans of playing their new material live, they headed back to the studio to record more new music. A product of this recording session is their fantastic upcoming EP ‘Smile, It Might Never Happen’, due for release February 26th 2021 via Favour The Brave Records.

Recorded at their recently-built home studio and produced, mixed and mastered by Rhys May (Bring Me The Horizon, Don Broco, While She Sleeps), the EP explores the subjects of mental health, friendship, and letting go of the negatives in your life & living in the moment.

Prior to the release comes the EP’s leading single ‘Looking In’. Commenting on the track the band state: “Looking in is about feeling left out and neglected, wanting to be included but also struggling to make these feelings known, causing you to never really get anywhere”.

At face value from the previous release of ‘Looking In’, this band hitting the ground running should be the next British band to be keeping your eye on. And they are getting there. Fingers crossed touring resumes at some point this year so there’s a chance to see them live sometime in the next twelve months.

Starting off with Control, the techno vibes, hooks and vocals are reminiscent of Don Broco’s ‘Technology’ but trust me, it does work! They have their own spin on production, which could be down to their producer Rhys May who is assistant producer to Dan Lancaster whom Broco have worked with before. After that opening and digging deep into the track has just huge storming guitars fuse into something which is unlike most newcomers you come across, this a good belter.

With ‘Smile’ this develops their sound with the more techno aspect where the production helps them in the best way but when it hits the breakdown, that’s where you’re seeing the potential of the band and root for them more.

‘Looking In’. This is my personal favourite off the EP as a whole. “There’s got to be a way to get out” is an all too feel representation of what life is for many people in the UK and this track in a matter of speaking in social aspects and more makes it so much more personal for anyone listening.

On the last track, ‘Get Fucked’ this seems as if it’s something I would’ve listened to back in my teenage days if the lyrics are anything to go by but, this is a great closer for the EP. There’s something as well in the breakdowns which just makes this a standout track where on the final third is somewhat masterful and just has so much potential where Dohny Jep have the chance to breakout and be the voices of a new generation in the UK.

What occurs on this EP is a well crafted rounded out set of tracks that make you want to listen to it over and over again. There’s certainly something to be said about Dohny Jep as a band to be on the lookout for once lockdown ends because how it translates live will be a deciding factor for most.

Rating: 4/5.
