Dang Dang is a mix of 80s sounds, ranging among new wave, post punk and dark blues.
Dang Dang formed in 2012 by Matteo Castagnoli (The Chics, Ghost of Bell Star, Walls of Lymbo, 64 Slices of American Cheese) and Fabio Borroni (Akemi). Later on 2015, Nicola “Rospo” Bustacchini (SybiAnn, The Chics) joined at the bass and Lara Zambelli (SybiAnn) at synths and vocals. The band decided then to record the first demos without acoustic drums, only with synths and drum machines. In 2016, the attained band released its first self-produced record: “You Should Be Happy”. In 2017 Enrico "Enri" Zavalloni, already producer of Dang Dang's new songs, becomes permanent member as additional synths player.
In its latest songs the massive use of synths and drum machines leads the band to more dance oriented fields and gigs become hypnotic and energetic performances invoking the spirit of Madchester and Acid Factory.
