xlr12 Every track on this album is enjoyable. Normally I only find a couple songs per album but I listen to this whole set every time I play it. Look forward to more in the future. Favorite track: Double Line Theme.

Luke Wilson I’ve been a fan of SSLYBY since 2009 and I love this refreshing new side project. As SSLYBY slowly progressed away from weird twee rock to full-on streamlined alternative with each album, I felt less enthusiastic about what they produced (don’t get me wrong: I still love their newer stuff, it just feels less bold & innovative). But Dragon Inn 3 feels as lovely and interesting as their Pershing days, with the added bonus of radio-friendly nostalgia (i.e., there’s a bigger mass appeal for my less explorative friends). Favorite track: Bad Boy.

sk8boarddelivery The feeling of walking down a neon-lit street at midnight in the 1980s, listening to your favorite dance tunes, ready to have a good time, but potentially get stabbed, made audible ♥ Favorite track: Backstabber.

compmanjx3 I've been in love with Dragon Inn 3 since a local radio station played Club Sauce. This record is so upbeat and catchy. Every single song puts a smile on my face. it is honestly hard to pick a favorite. Favorite track: Club Sauce.

nano_irving This band came up out of no where for me and impressed me to no end. I love their catchy neo-retro vibe they bring and can't wait for more! Favorite track: Backstabber.

Bad Boy 03:32
I was looking around town Watching the sundown Thinking the same as you I’ve been trying to slow down Laying low now Trying to make it through When the night is coming Are you still running Holding on to memories Are you somewhere out there Hear my last prayer I still need you Everyday I feel like I could be your bad boy Your bad boy I feel the way you wait for it Oooh I was under the knife At the top of the night Cuz I know you feel it too I was losing my way through Through the edge of decay Probably trying to get to you When the night is coming Are you still running Tripping over memories And if you were mine And we give it time I could get you what you need Everyday I feel like I could be your bad boy Your bad boy I feel the way you wait for it wait for it wait for it Ooh

Club Sauce 03:35
Whenever you’re ever so lost Days and nights are fog Whatever whatever you’re on Whatever whatever you’re on One more night One more night One more night in Club Sauce One last time One last time In Club Sauce I’ve been to those Hollywood clubs I tasted that Redwood bud I crossed the ocean once And I’ll cross it again for Club Sauce One more night One more night One more night in Club Sauce One last time One last time In Club Sauce I was so lost Until I found That sound I cannot wash it off I cannot sleep it off I cannot shake it off

I called in late for work Even though there was a prize For being there all the time There's just too much on mind Don't know what you're saying When we kissed My heart was like a new Rocket Launcher I worked too hard at work Put my car in reverse I crossed the double line There's just too much on my mind Don't know why you're staying When we kissed My heart was like a new Rocket Launcher When I thought about it I could be better off without you (4x)

Nothing Nothing ever will Slow me Slow me down again Nothing’s going to slow me down Slow me down Slow me down Slow me down again (8x) Don’t cry it’ll be alright Don’t cry ’til you see the light now You’re gonna find every dream in the city lights

Won't you tie me up again? Or are you gonna meet your friend? If you don't see me there tonight I'll be working overtime I'll be... Up in the business (4x) All night long Once again he leaves you there And I'm the only one who cares I will keep coming back 'Til I hear the vessel crack I'm up in the business all night long (4x) Back where we came from

about

Available now on CD, LP, and Digitally

Dragon Inn 3's debut LP clocks in at 28 minutes, but the band spent six years whittling away on the songs that would eventually become Double Line. Combining sugary pop hooks, hypnotic beats, and huge MOOG synths, Dragon Inn 3's playful take on 80s pop could double as the soundtrack to a John Hughes movie (if John Hughes directed Blade Runner).

The cinematic origins of Dragon Inn 3 can be traced back to 2012, when Philip Dickey (leader of the indie-pop group Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin) wrote a theme song for the award-winning short film Ghoul School. "If you watch the trailer you can tell it's the same premise and look as Stranger Things–we just accidentally made it three years before them," Dickey says. "I had so much fun making the soundtrack with the director (E.P. Marcus) that we decided to start a band."

Dickey recruited his sister, Sharon Bowie, an occupational therapist, and his wife, children's librarian Grace Bentley, to help with songwriting and vocal duties. The group self-released the Ghoul School Soundtrack EP in late 2012, receiving high praise from Consequence of Sound, Philadelphia's WXPN, and The Riverfront Times, before climbing to #1 on Bandcamp's cassette charts.

Then it was back to the studio (i.e. the bedrooms, kitchens, garages, and hotel rooms that doubled as makeshift recording studios). In between full-time jobs, parenthood, graduate school classes, and cross country moves, the members of Dragon Inn 3 put Double Line to tape. "I'm a stay-at-home dad now, so I would work on song arrangements and rough mixes when our toddler was taking his naps," explains Dickey. "Grace would come home from work and record all her parts after his bedtime. We recorded all the breathy vocals in the living room and all the yelly parts in the garage so we wouldn't wake him up."

Praise for Double Line:

"wonderfully sharp songwriting and tasteful studio craft." - All Music (4 stars)

"an homage to everything we loved about John Hughes' movies, MTV videos and Miami Vice." - WXPN World Cafe / NPR Music

"80's style neon-lit future pop with big, sugary warm analog synths and a sugared edge" - Bandcamp "New & Notable Release"

"...satisfy your need for saccharine party riffs, steeped in synths." - Grimy Goods

"...dangerously charming and stealing the entire show. The quartet is bringing back sounds that have been missing from pop." - AXS
