Dragon Inn 3 is the current project of Kansas City resident and indie royalty Philip Dickey (of Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin fame). Along with his sister Sharon Bowie, his wife Grace Bentley, and David Hill they’ve created the delightful synthpop jam “I Can’t Stop.”
While there are seemingly no dragons, Dragon Inn 3 will certainly be a wonderful host to your ear buds if you’re familiar with such acts as Eurythmics and early, less depressing, Depeche Mode (seriously, check out 1985’s Catching Up with Depeche Mode and tell me I’m wrong). Dragon Inn 3 brings back the fun and whimsy of the 80s with the production and sleek songwriting skills of modern day indie rock (and gives SSLYBY fans a tasty slice of new content), reminding you that it’s okay to dance to rock ‘n roll.
Be sure to check out Dragon Inn 3’s sophomore album Trade Secrets, out April 28th on their label American Laundromat Records. You can hear “I Can’t Stop” as well as their previous tracks over on Sound Cloud, Spotify, Apple Music, or their site.
Tldr; come for the non-stop synthpop goodness, stay for the dreamy vocals that float through your ears.
