Listen to Den-Mate perform and chat for WCPO Lounge Acts
Jules Hale, the frontwoman of Washington D.C.-based Den-Mate, is a force to be reckoned with. She’s previously described the character behind “Charlotte,” the opening track on Den-Mate’s most recent album, as the "insecure mannerism that we all revert to when we are feeling misheard, misguided and misunderstood,” but to hear Hales sing, you wouldn’t know she were capable of such feelings. Her voice is at once powerful and dreamy, a perfect complement to the genre-bending music behind it.
A mix of dark pop and electro sounds, their most recent album, Loceke, is strong - both in musicality and energy - from start to finish. Written as a continuous storyline, the album explores worldviews and emotions in a completely unique, deeply honest, way. Each song adds a chapter to reveal more about Hale, weaving an intricate web that keeps you intrigued.
While listening to Loceke is an immersive experience in and of itself, hearing Den-Mate live is another level entirely. Experience it for yourself: Den-Mate plays Cincinnati’s MOTR Pub on November 18th - get ticket info here.
