Two things we love: sweets and sunshine.
DNCE released their new video for debut single “Cake by The Ocean” and, quite literally, there is lots of cake, in fact a giant cake, by the ocean at Huntington Beach, California. Taking place at the ‘DNCE’s International Cake Fight Championship,’ the video features entertainer the Fat Jewish, who gets showered with cake in an effort to become the cake fight champion.
Joe Jonas’ [former] girlfriend and supermodel Gigi Hadid made her directorial debut, co-directing with Black Coffee. “She’s always had a high creative eye, so she came up with the concept and we rolled with it. She was a good boss” Joe said.
He went on to say that the concept for the International Cake Fight Championship came to the band almost immediately: “We were thinking of ideas and turned around and said, ‘Why not put a massive cake on the beach?… It came together really quickly and were really excited about it because it’s just something that I think is wacky and fun.”
Wacky and fun it was. Bassist/keyboardist Cole Whittle said that cleaning up was easier than expected: “we all just ate the cake off the sand…Everyone had cake and had fun.”

The band also put out their first EP ‘SWAAY’ on October 23rd:
They’ve also kept busy performing at the iHeartRadio’s Jingle Ball earlier in December and being on tour. Jonas revealed that after their 2015 tour, they’re hoping to go worldwide next year. We’re excited to see this band thrive. Get to know each member a little better here.
