Five years ago, Dacian Miron‘s previous band The August Name fizzled out and left him without the drive to continue creating music. The Romanian-born artist spent those years trying to be a “real adult,” working long hours towards a career he didn’t even want. Miron fell into a state of depression and at the beginning of 2019, he decided is was time to make a big change. He withdrew a massive chunk out of his 401K and entered the studio with producer Kevin Lankford to start making music again. Today, you can hear his second solo single “Young Punk, Mr. Rock N Roll.”
“The track is written about dealing with the daily struggles of getting pushed around by those who think of themselves as the greatest thing to walk this earth,” says Miron. “This tune serves as a reminder that even underdogs stand a chance in this day and age.“
Miron had trouble making friends when he first moved to America at ten years old, his thick European accent made him a prime target for bullying. Struggling to find acceptance with his peers, Miron secluded himself in his room watching YouTube videos and finding refuge in punk music. Soon after, he began forming bands of his own, most notably The August Name, a group that found moderate local success opening for AWOLNATION and recording an EP with Lee Dyess (Mayday Parade, Go Radio, I Set My Friends on Fire).
Miron launched is solo project in the summer of 2019 with the release of his first single “Feelin’ Dangerous.” The music video racked up 30k upon its release and is still growing everyday. “Young Punk, Mr. Rock N Roll” will be featured on Miron’s debut EP Slightly Mysterious, Somewhat Delirious, anticipated to drop in the Spring of 2020.
