About The Dig
Few words go together quite like 'New York-based American Rock Band.' But no phrase more accurately describes this quartet called The Dig, which has been generating plenty of buzz from their first two full-length albums.
The Dig describes its sound as '80s shoegaze inspired rock. Making noise with the boys are Emile Mosseri (bass/vocals), David Baldwin (guitar/vocals), Erick Eiser (keyboards/guitar), and Mark Demiglio (drums). Last year, "You & I" marked their third release in just two years following 2012's "Midnight Flowers" and their first 2013 EP, "Tired Hearts."
The project that really got the ball rolling for the band was their debut album, 2010's "Electric Toys." Produced by Bryce Goggin (who has worked with the likes of Ramones and Swans), the album title was a reference to a lyric in the song "She's Going to Kill That Boy," and suggests that the album is actually a collection of electric toys.
Though it seems like The Dig's success has come rather quickly, Mosseri and Baldwin have been making music together since they were eleven years old. After meeting California native Eiser, the three have been writing songs and playing in different bands together since they were in high school. Demiglio is actually the newest member, having moved to New York from Texas to join The Dig following the recording of "Midnight Flowers."
The band has one more big show on the schedule for 2014 at Rough Trade in New York City on December 19. Get your tickets now!
