Harrison Patrick Smith’s new project revels in the aesthetics of late 2000s bloghouse with a postCOVID air of abandonment. Equal parts anthemic and cheeky, The Dare’s quotable bangers make a compelling case for the electroclash revival. “Dancepunk and electroclash represent a lot of my personal ideals about music,” he explains. “It should be fun, dangerous, somewhat punk and primitive, but still tasteful and stylish.” Harrison is a fixture in New York City’s thriving club scene. His DJ residency, Freakquencies, draws hordes of downtown cool kids to sticky-floored underground clubs every Thursday.
