Live Music by Dawkins

Dawkins is comprised of five childhood friends from Washington, DC. They make dramatic soundscapes that are all at once woozy, beachy, lush and hypnotic. Incorporating elements of jazz, psych-rock and hip-hop, they strive to make enjoyably disorienting music that "hits you in the head like a brick made of delicious candy." Their debut EP was released June 1st, 2017.

Check them out on Facebook and Bandcamp.
