TVD Video Premiere: Dentist, “Bird In A Cage”

Something of a best kept secret in the re-emerging Asbury Park, NJ scene, Dentist is certainly a band to watch and their latest visual output is a testament to that.

The video for their single “Bird In A Cage” comes off of the band’s self-titled debut LP, released earlier this year. The crunchy, surf-sheen of the “Bird In A Cage” relays their NJ shore background and elicits the best of ’90s indie rock. Dentist’s neo-pop sensibilities are the product of husband and wife duo Emily Bornemann on rhythm guitar and Justin Bornemann on lead, with Andy Bova on drums, Nick Kaelblein on bass, and Matt Maneri on the keys.

Of the video, Justin says, “We wanted to test Emily’s endurance for cold temperatures. It turns out she is pretty good at pretending she isn’t cold when she is freezing. The rest of us got to wear jackets, so we were all happy about that. We thought it would be interesting to put our music, which is more likely to be associated with the summer, against a winter backdrop. Then it turned into this surreal kind of thing by having Emily walking around in the snow with only a dress on.”
