NEW MUSIC: THE DANCERS - "FOR SOMETHING IN YOUR EYES"
After the bout of miserable weather we have had recently it comes as a welcome surprise to hear "For Something In Your Eyes". Signed to Zimbalam/Believe Digital the three piece from France have created a beautiful facet of indie-pop with hints of Gallic flare and bopping instrumentals. Based in Brighton The Dancers have had a great 2012 with performances at festivals like Les Francofolies and supporting bands like Pony Pony Run Run. This year is shaping up nicely for the French trio with their debut single set for digital release on March 18th after receiving positive critique. "For Something In Your Eyes" reminds us of Givers or Skinny Lister, with hints of Vampire Weekend for good measure. However, this band go out on a limb and bleach out the preparatory feel in favour of twinkling musical regalia and a warm façade. The introduction starts off with an arcade mesh of honks and synth trumpets, sounding like a seventies tunnel of tropical beats and contented rhythms that dance around your auditory senses. A jovial chorus cuddles the instrumentals like a best friend and evokes happy thoughts between harmonic vocal peaks and copper tinged guitar interplay. This debut is joyful and excitable; even the most grumpy of festival goers couldn't possibly resist a restrained tap of the foot in the presence of such simple yet utterly fun music.
