Joe Jonas’ new group DNCE are looking to be “the greatest band from the universe”.
The 26-year-old singer has recently found fame together third of sibling group The Jonas Brothers. He is now longing for similar success regarding his new musical venture, which sees him get together with guitarist JinJoo, bassist/keyboardist Cole Whittle, and drummer Jack Lawless.
And with One Direction currently on hiatus it comes with an opening for just a new world-famous band with DNCE (pronounced dance) confident they could fill the positioning.
Bandmember Cole, explained their unusual moniker emerged in a songwriting session. “The name came from the creative process writing a song about being too tipsy or drunk to spell the phrase dance, that is blossomed into four letters, four different unique superheroes. Each letter could mean whatever someone desires to so it’s an incredibly universal, big, open wide concept,” he revealed.
The group are planning to release their debut single Cake By The Ocean but will wasn’t actually them who invented the quirky title with the track.
“We wrote the song with many producers from Sweden, they kept confusing the drink Sex On The Beach with Cake By The Ocean and now we ran along with it,” Joe told MTV News.
He previously said that despite his fame, he’s not expecting DNCE being successful straight away from the starting line. Instead, they are prepared to join his bandmates in making an effort to build up a fanbase.
“It will be easy to enter in to this from similar to the Jonas Brothers by having an ego, but I’ve got my directly straight,” he told Billboard magazine. “I’m able to get out there and develop a fan base.”
But bandmate Cole stated their ambitions in confident fashion: “The temporary and long-term plan with the band will be the biggest band from the universe.”
