about

Dan DiMonte and the Bad Assettes' first single "Dance with Her", recorded at Flat Black Studios in Lone Tree, IA. Departing from their more improvisation-based sound, this is the band's first foray into a through-composed, back beat-less composition. Accessible melody mixed with chordal sophistication and powerful lyrics.

Dance with Her
Music and Lyrics by Dan DiMonte

I’d like to fall in the river
On an August day
And paddle under the bridges
To hear the mighty songs they sing

And then I’ll float to the ocean
When summer’s fading slowly
Then I’ll rise to a raincloud
And let a crowd of strangers hold me

All the things I’d do
To escape the ghost of you
And I know the answer
But I’m afraid to dance with her

I’d like to fly to the mountains
Where the trees stand tall
With purples, blues, and darker hues lit up by foggy moon
I never felt so small

I’m staring down at the endgame
And it’s you I wanna call
I never felt so small, my friend
I never felt so small

All the things I’d do
To escape the ghost of you
And I know the answer
But I’m afraid to dance with her
