James Allison knows exactly what he’s doing with Digisaurus, an energetic synth-pop trio founded right here in Columbus. Describing his act as “Future Pop/Rock”, Allison has spent the better part of two years building upon his catalogue and performing at venues all over the city. His commanding stage presence captivates every audience he plays – bouncing in front of the keys like a young James Murphy, well-coordinated light sheets blasting rays into the crowd, he clings to the path to success led by other bands in his genre – but don’t be quick to write Allison off as yet another pop artist. Allison and his crew bring a certain funk to the genre. Merging 1975-esque guitar leads with twangy riffs, Digisaurus sets the bar high for Columbus synth pop. Stream their newest single, Charlie’s Got Me Running, below.
Digisaurus is currently on a nationwide, self-supported tour and will make their return to the Capital City for Independent’s Day Festival this September. Check out their dates here!
