Not A Boys Name is the long awaited solo project from multi-instrumentalist Dave Jenkins Jr. Over the years he has toured with some of Australia’s leading musicians including Vera Blue, Daniel Johns and Lisa Mitchell and brought his unique groove and crazy talent to their live bands. But now he is stepping out of the shadows and into the spotlight with his debut single which is a ambitious and anthemic affair. ‘Hazard Perception Test’ is a catchy track that is lead by gritty and punchy guitar riffs along with slick synths that creates a unique indie rock blend. The song confronts your insecurities and fears by finding the power to fight them. The chorus combines the cool vibes of The Killers with a dreamy new wave influence that will have you bopping along instantly. With each listen this track will grow on you and have you more and more intrigued to hear what else he is going to deliver. Not A Boys Name will be playing his debut shows this September at Bigsound Festival in Brisbane.
