Dawes is a band known for their folk-rock sound. The California band’s sound usually consists of a more banjo-focused, laid back vibe. However, the group has completely veered away from their traditional sound with their new album, We’re All Gonna Die. The band’s fifth album takes a stylistic detour, instead boasting a more R&B type sound with storytelling lyrics. This newly found upbeat, funky sound is taking Dawes in an exciting and new direction.
