History

Dat'r was originally formed as a side project of the Portland-based Rock band Binary Dolls. Alcott and Dabrowiak began pursuing Dat'r when Binary Dolls' singer Nick Jaina decided to focus on writing and performing Folk music.[1]

Shortly after the release of their Hush Records debut Turn Up the Ghosts, Dat'r was voted #6 on the "Top Ten Best New Bands in Portland" by the Willamette Week, a local newspaper.[1] The album was praised by PopMatters, calling it "well-executed" and, "fun-as-hell".[2]

Dat'r incorporates many different types of electronic instruments (game console joysticks, laptops, keyboards) and percussive instruments (shakers, cymbals, tambourines) into their energetic live performances.[3] The duo performed at the 2007 annual PDX Pop Now! Festival in Portland.

The band has currently been recording a new album since October 2008 with no anticipated release date at this time.
