A Super date with DNCE

A Super date with DNCE

What do you get when you spend 10 minutes with DNCE? Spontaneous singing, weird noises, a bit of horseplay, and lots of laughter.

But first, who is DNCE? Frontman Joe Jonas has a ready answer, “Take superheroes, funk, cake, some hygiene products like toothbrushes, and a little bit of sparkles and magic dust, blend it in a blender, preferably with bourbon, and pour it into a nice tall glass with a little umbrella and pineapple. That’s us,” he said during Super’s interview with the awesome foursome before their first concert in Seoul, South Korea.
MCA Music recently flew Super to Seoul to cover DNCE’s first-ever Asian tour. We joined the band members for a traditional Korean morning meal at the Grand Walkerhill Seoul before the interview.

How they introduce themselves as individual members is no less offbeat. “Hmmm… I would say Joe is the fearless international super spy,” Cole began. “JinJoo (Lee, guitarist) is the dangerous, beautiful princess of bad attitudes–”

Interview for Flaunt

JOE JONAS

“For so many years I had a lot of cooks in the kitchen and other members of bands that I was working with. This was the first time that I was really able to say, ‘I want to create something on my own and see what this could be.’”

As rites of passage go, popstar evolution comes with a high casualty rate. Joe Jonas was born in 1989, yet he’s sashaying past “the 27 club” with a litany of chart-tracking hits, a supermodel ex-girlfriend, and a jet-set lifestyle. But it’s the omissions that stand out – no arrests, no drug overdoses, weapons charges, near-fatal accidents involving swimming pools… Yet if you’ve been paying attention there’s a liberation taking place for Joe Jonas – an emergence of a real person behind all the layers of expectation and managed identity. After years of faithful service as Disney’s golden child – the purity ring-clad proponent of abstinence and youthful faith – it’s not surprising that somewhere along the way the real Joe Jonas was a bit obscured, his identity folded in to all the things he was expected to be. But there was more to Jonas than he was encouraged to reveal: a character with edges that didn’t quite fit into the center of the Venn diagram where Christian, lead singer in a family boy band, and Disney-star overlap.
