‘2 Down 2 Dance’, the newest track from London’s Sorry, is a grunge-inspired song about ballet, which is a first as far as we know. Still, it’s pretty on the money from a band that described their sound as “Sad grunge, but a bit tongue in cheek.”
The song is a more energetic affair than their recent releases, working as the door-slamming tantrum to earlier tracks like ‘Wished’, which were more the audio equivalent of a sullen refusal to talk to your parents on holiday. It’s louder and faster, but it still isn’t overly happy with its lot in life.
Don’t worry though; it’s very, very good. Lead singer Asha’s downbeat opening lines soon ramp up as the rest of the band join in and before you know it you’re jumping around your living room wishing you were in the backroom of a pub spilling overpriced Carlsberg all over your clothes.
For a band with just a few singles under their belt, Sorry seem to know exactly what they’re doing, expect big things going forward (and just be glad you’re not a ballet dancer that’s too sad to actually do any ballet). Jake Hawkes
