Born in Romania and now residing in Tampa, FL - we are graced today with the energetic Dacian Miron and his new song “Young Punk, Mr. Rock N Roll”.
The song “Young Punk, Mr. Rock N Roll” is the definition of an infectious song that is coupled with high energy. The intro rips right into it, setting the tone of angst toward people who have tried to make you feel small. The guitar lead is reminiscent of Relient K meets Unwritten Law and vocally, there is a healthy balance of early 2000’s punk and modern-day Pop Punk. With a line such as “sweating bullets like a nervous wreck”, you can’t help but sing along to this anthemic Punk jam. Where the song speaks for itself, there is a sweet guitar solo around the 2:04 mark that completely melts your face, while makes you jump on your bed and air guitar along! The song finishes with the banging chorus and by the 3rd time hearing it, you’re already singing along. Production-wise, the sonic sounds are great and very clear for a distorted genre. If you like the early 2000’s Punk with modern age Pop Punk, we have something for you and it is “Young Punk, Mr. Rock N Roll” by Dacian Miron.
Listen to the soundings of Dacian Miron here
You moved to the United States at the age of 10 from Romania. Has that experience had any influence on your sound/ lyrics?
I'd say. I'm probably the only Romanian you'll ever meet with the amount of built-up angst equating to that of a 15-year-old teenager. I came to the USA with the expectation that starting anew is a good thing. But I honestly didn't fit in. People didn't like me because I was different, obscure. "Hey, look at that kid, he talks funny". "Kids weird and I don't want to hang with him." Heard it all... And more. Sure, it was hard at first, but after a while, I decided to not let it bother me. So I started writing about how I felt. I took pride in being weird. This album I'm working on is a self-reflection of myself and how others view me and I personally hope it resonates with anyone that feels the same way because being different is a blessing, not a curse.
At what age did you discover Punk music and what band got you into Punk?
If I recall correctly, I was about 14 years old during Summer break sitting in my room messing around on YouTube. To this day, I still don't know what video I clicked on that led me to Blink 182's Dammit Music Video, but once I watched it, I became hooked. Something clicked for me with Blink. I'm not sure if it was humor associated with their music or just the don't care attitude they put out. Then I came across Sum 41, Green Day, Good Charlotte and The Offspring. Those were the major bands that started the transition into my so-called Punk phase.
You have premiered songs with Idobi, how did that come to be and what was your experience like working with them?
It's true. My first single Feelin' Dangerous was thrown on rotation back in September after I submitted it directly to their Anthem station. I love everything about Idobi and what they do for Artists. This isn't your typical cliché internet radio station. Idobi loves and believes in good quality songs if they like what they hear, they will air your music regardless if you're a signed major artist or an up and comer. Their hosts actually take time to interact with their fan base by posting exclusive content from shows which makes you feel like you're part of the family. Maybe this is exactly the reason this station stands out against all the rest. Working with them has been an absolute pleasure and I'm really excited for them to première my new tracks.
Who would you say is the most inspiring artist for you?
This is such a hard question. You can't do this to me. I can't just pick one. I draw influence from a ton of artists. I love me some Frank Sinatra, and Johnny Cash. Michael Jackson is also right behind them. But in this modern-day, I guess you could say, Brendon Urie. It's actually kind of funny because I get a slight comparison to Brendon all the time. Some say I'm the perfect mix of Brendon, Alex Gaskarth and Tom Delonge. I don't see it, but I'll take it!
What is next for you? Any plans to tour or release more music?
I started off my solo project in July of 2019. I have two singles released. Feelin' Dangerous and Young Punk, Mr. Rock N Roll. I'm in the process of shooting a music video for Young Punk, and the timeline for that release is around January. 2020 should be a fantastic year for me. I have a few things planned, first being my début album "Slightly Mysterious, Somewhat Delirious. I'm also looking to put together some tours after the album release. More info will be made available closer to that time. I have plans for a followup EP as well, I've written about 20 tracks I'm itchin' to release to the public.
