Dante Elephante

Dante Elephante, recently released their new single “Call Me (on the phone)” today, produced by Jonathan Rado of Foxygen (The Lemon Twigs, Whitney).

“The song is about my first 6 months being single after a 3-year relationship,” shares Ruben Zarate, frontman and founder of Dante Elephante. “The verses are positive about going out and having a good time. Then, when I was writing the song, my ex called me while I was sitting on the piano just to “talk.” It was a pretty average talk. She rambles about how she’s been since the break up and I gave short responses on how I’ve been. We hang up, I sit at the piano again, and then the first thing that came out of my mouth was “call me on the phone / cause you know what it does / it says, I have to be someone I’m not”.”

Dante Elephante announced dates for an upcoming tour co-headlining with Sego in March.
