From their hometown of Manchester, Dantevilles are regenerating alternative pop at the same rate as the city regenerates itself. Soulful and diverse, their clean, canny guitars and dual vocals reimagine the city’s sound through the crisp architecture of their atypical rearrangements. As England’s industrial noise dissolves, Dantevilles sing songs for a new north. Do you want to know them better? Have a look below:
