1. Why DNCE?

DNCE does indeed allude to the word ‘dance’, though it is pronounced by it’s letters (D-N-C-E). The name actually started out as a typo, when the band were discussing what the should be called. Cole explains, “Someone mispelled the word ‘dance’, in a text message, and missed out the ‘a’. In that moment it clicked; we saw it in bright lights. We knew that was the name.” And yes, their phones correct ‘dance’ to ‘DNCE’ now!
