Discovery: Johnny Dango

Johnny Dango is a country singer who doesn’t take himself too seriously. Hailing from Tornado Alley, he’s not above self-satire.

New track New Modern Age combines waltzing acoustic guitar with doom-saying lyrics. His open and authentic disdain for the modern age is certainly relatable. His brutal honestly and country style come across very similar to later Conor Oberst.

“It’s 2016… but the 19th century’s in style once again” is a particular stand out lyric to describe this lament. Check out Johnny’s take on the New Modern Age below.
