“Influenced by a range of sounds that includes European dance music and the suave, sophisticated sounds of pre-New Romantic acts such as Roxy Music, the LP sets its sights on the carnal, the celebratory, the nocturnal and their intersections and departures." -- Pop Matters
“It’s a by turns melodic, atmospheric and revved-up showcase of Janssen’s songwriting skills, with pop sensibilities that bring to mind French and British acts from Phoenix to Orchestral Maneuvers In The Dark.” -- Food Republic
A polished and atmospheric examination of missed connections and altered states, where the thrum of 21st century psychedelia meets European dance floor chic, Dana Buoy’s Ice Glitter Gold, is equal parts lusty and lysergic. Helmed by songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Dana Janssen (Akron/Family), Dana Buoy delivers a sweaty, late-night pop record with an analogue 4-on-the-floor heartbeat throbbing at the center. With eight songs, Ice Glitter Gold leaves behind a neon lit, self-aware paper trail, following the heartbreak, disconnection and happiness of a modern man. Moogs, Dreadbox synths, chiming guitars and the taut groove carry a guarded, of the moment (but weirdly-not-cynical) series of elegantly conceived tales.
