IV Dante paints a picture of indie perfection on new single ‘By Herself’

Barely in his twenties, Melbourne artist IV Dante is set to explode into the scene with an indie pop sound which makes you want to move and scream at the top of your lungs. 

Now IV Dante has released By Herself, a track from the upcoming Purple EP due to land next January 31. 

IV Dante

Get ready to make By Herself part of your daily rotation as IV Dante treats you to a flawless and energetic indie hit. 

The lyrics to By Herself are perfectly crafted to pull you in and make you lean on every word. With a lineup of bassist Clynton Royle, drummer Isaac Prete, and fronted by Dante himself, the edgy sound of By Herself shows great promise for an astounding live show.

While it’s clear that IV Dante has contemporary influences such as The 1975 and Catfish and the Bottlemen, the 1980s are also a definite contributor to this sound, transforming everything we know and love about big ’80s pop into a polished and modern indie tune which will become very, very etched into your head. 

For such a short track, By Herself possesses so many nooks and crannies for you to explore. From its simple start to the explosive chorus, intricate drum rolls, an all-consuming bridge, and the infectious guitar solo, it appears that Dante has found a volatile recipe for indie-rock. 

A track record shows that despite the young age, IV Dante are no stranger to crafting simple, beautiful songs filled to the brim with uplifting energy.
