DKLIMB – Defy. Define. Definition.
Miami, Florida’s DKLimb are out to avenge the death of alternative rock. Building on influences from Incubus and Foo Fighters to Glassjaw and Saves the Day, DKLimb’s debut full-length Defy. Define. Definition. sets out redefine alternative rock. Taking a we’re-rubber-and-you’re-glue approach to genre labeling, the band has created a sound that blends mild vocal acrobatics with the easy on the ears rock sounds of Foo Fighters. DKLimb do know how to bring a little bit of ferocity to their music. The track “Said and Done” would be right at home on a Glassjaw album, with fitful screams laced with fast flowing lyrics that could put lead singer Chris Liegerot at the top of the rap game. This album is one that builds off of the tricks of old bands, but they do it in a new way. DKLimb have their priorities straight, and Defy. Define. Definition. always keeps things new while always feeling familiar. The album rounds off its eleven-track journey with “Cellphone Lights and Sound” that brings together all of the sounds found this album into one four-and-a-half minute cacophony of singing, screaming, and reverberating guitar that will leave the sounds of DKLimb echoing in your ears long after the disc is done spinning.
