Single review by firstname.lastname@example.org
From their Brighton base, The Dancers took to the road for much of 2012, part of that time was spent supporting hit and miss indie types The Subways. Not a bad move as, although they may not be enjoying their early success anymore, they'll still bring in a crowd and hopefully a few will have left with their minds set on seeking out some tunes from The Dancers, who on the strength of what we've heard so far are in a better position musically than their tour buddies. An EP and a single were also released towards the end of the year and now they're gearing up for their first worldwide single release, 'For Something In Your Eyes', due on February 19th.
Taking a basic indie/rock starting point, The Dancers liven things up and add layers of colour by using more exotic rhythms and instruments. It's like Vampire Weekend only more fun and less preppy. 'For Something In Your Eyes' should stand them in good stead, it's a lively and hook-filled pop song with enough personality to leave a mark. Maybe the closest comparison we can think of is to Little Comets, it has that similar summery feel. Releasing a single now may indicate that a possible EP or even an album could be planned for summer, and if so the timing will be perfect. The Dancers would sound twice as good in the sun and will surely be a hit at the festivals.
The full video for the single will be unveiled on February 19th, until then here's previous track 'Seagulls'.
