New Music Heaven : Dan Luke & The Raid

October 8, 2017

Dan Luke and The Raid is a five piece psych pop band from Bowing Green, Kentucky consisting of Daniel Shultz, Kendrick Brent, Patrick Stewart, Dylan Graves, and Anthony Joiner. Shultz and Brent have been playing in bands together since high school, cutting their teeth playing house parties and bars that would take their fake ID's. Shultz also happens to be youngest brother of Matt and Brad Shultz from the Cage the Elephant. Growing up Shultz was alway weary of the inevitable comparisons between him and his brothers, however, overcoming that fear is what enabled him to find his own sound.  "I think what pops out to me most about Daniel is he has such a keen musical sensibility and broad taste for such a young kid. He’s far beyond where Matt and I were at his age musically,” says Brad.

This week's New Music Heaven is Dan Luke and The Raid's single ‘Black Cat Heavy Metal’ which comes from their debut EP Be Good due out this winter. Hear it all week long on 94/7, and look out for a free download in your Nation email
