Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. are Joshua Epstein and Daniel Zott hailing from Detroit City, USA. Their upbeat electronic-pop-folk style shines through brightly on their debut four-track EP Horse Power. Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. have created a winning sound, with layers of electronic drum beats over guitar strums and keyboards. The tracks are carried by their wonderful melodic harmonies that are summery and breezy and can at times be likened to that of artist Ben Kweller, minus the annoying twee-ness. They even pay tribute to The Beach Boys with a cover of ‘God Only Knows’ as the final track on the EP.
The guys are currently working on their full length debut which they hope to have out early 2011.
