Dante Short Info

Dante have an ability to instinctively span genres with a flair and panache that many of their contemporaries would be proud of. On the critically acclaimed debut album, Wake, the band illustrated their capacity to create traditional Celtic tunes that fit into a modern landscape.

Following an impressive two years of festival appearances and wide ranging support from the likes of Beat Surrender, Artrocker Magazine, God Is In The TV, The Scottish Sun, Rock N Reel and being named in The Herald’s Top 50 Albums, the band are beginning tour again, road-testing new material from their second album, due for release in the latter half of 2015.


“Poised thrillingly between indie-rock and indie-folk...The roots go deep but the attitude is right here, right now”
- Top 50 Albums of 2013, The Herald/The Sunday Herald

“Paving the way for modern Celtic Music.”
- Artrocker

“For those into indie folk without the twee undertones, Dante’s album ‘wake’ is all kinds of lush.”
- Fame Magazine

“Folk-Flecked indie gems.”
- The Skinny
