Unlike your typical scruffy indie band, fashion plays an integral role in the Minneapolis band Dearling Physique, allowing the band members to assume multiple roles and identities, or as band front man Domino Davis terms it in the most elegant sense, to “become numerous.”

This sense is brought to life in Dearling Physique’s upcoming video for “Discipline Your Hands,” (MP3) the first single from the band’s Deadeye Dealer album, out January 11, 2011.  The production is an intensely detailed one with gorgeous knitwear garments created especially for the shoot by rising fashion star Kevin Kramp (

The “Discipline Your Hands” production stills shot by fashion photographer Shuttertrip ( give a glimpse into Dearling Physique’s visual interpretation of the altered concepts of memory and identity that haunt the characters on Deadeye Dealer.

The “Discipline Your Hands” single by Dearling Physique is out now.  The video for the clip and the Deadeye Dealer album are set for release on January 11th, 2011.

Domino Davis is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.

More about Dearling Physique

A hybrid of mysterious, sensual rhythms; a soundtrack for the dark untraveled corners hidden beneath the gentle reflections of a pulsating metropolis... such is the musical landscape of Minneapolis band, Dearling Physique. Avant-garde but accessible, dark yet uplifting, Dearling Physique is a band that manipulates genres, effortlessly gliding between ambient sounds and electronica, from alternative pop to soul, while defying preconceived notions of conventional music.

Led by enigmatic front man, Domino Davis, the band has built an alluring reputation for captivating and challenging audiences. It’s this flair for visual and musical complexities that has fueled Dearling Physique’s local success, prompting the Minneapolis City Pages to proclaim Davis “...a forward-thinking artist capable of merging unlikely genres and audiences to great effect.”

These musical complexities can be found all over “Discipline Your Hands,” (MP3) the first single from Dearling Physique’s upcoming full-length debut album, Deadeye Dealer.  The band’s visual complexities haven’t gone unnoticed either – Hugo Boss recently selected a Dearling Physique song to appear on the company’s website and custom giveaway Hugo Boss iPods handed out in Berlin.

As Dearling Physique has done previously, the band plans a rigorous performance schedule surrounding the release of Deadeye Dealer. Dearling Physique has performed in the past with notable artists such as The Noisettes, Bat For Lashes and Saul Williams and will capture and envelop audiences with their elegant, unconventional form of musical synesthesia once again in the new year.
