“Fast, giddy, heart-bursting, danceable as s**t… f**king brilliant.” – NME
“Original, exciting, intricate pop that will make you dance, think and grin.” – Rock Sound
“Dance punk is the future, and Dartz! are the leaders of the revolution.” – Metal Hammer
Dealing in equal parts visceral punk, splintering math rock and kinetic pop, DARTZ! bring the noise. It’s a fun, riotous listen with genuine heart and intriguing complexities. It’s not often that words like “discordant” and “melodic” are thrown about in the same sentence, but the band’s willingness to let loose with raucous dance-punk abandon while delving into more adventurous, angular soundscapes — all without losing sight of each song’s irresistible hook and propulsive beat — makes for a cohesive and addictively explosive good time. Instantly captivating and undeniably enduring, This Is My Ship keeps an animated pace throughout its twelve exuberant tracks. Songs like “Prego Triangolos” and “St. Petersburg” give you an idea of which dynamic, spiky Q and Not U-esque school of indie rock these boys attend, but the handclaps and catchy hooks on cuts like “Once, Twice, Again!” remind us that, first and foremost, the band is here to make you move. Still, pigeonholing DARTZ! as anything other than an extremely intelligent, complex and exciting band would be doing them an injustice. Off-kilter riffs and catchy choruses rip a melodic groove into your brain while intersecting instrumental passages are compelling enough to keep the hipsters zigging and the punkers zagging. Make no mistake: This Is My Ship is an phenomenal release…one of the most memorable, enjoyable debuts in recent history.
