Dancehall, the new band from former members of Kill Kenada and Ice Sea Dead People, have dropped new 'un ‘Virgin' - have a listen below, first on Dork.
The London group’s latest track lands on 26th May via Vibe/Anti-Vibe and Strong Island Records, backed by b-side 'Digging’, and is a kick-back at stupid, unnecessary social pressures.
"We recorded this live at Soundsavers to our three-take rule with Mark Jasper and co-released via our own label and with Strong Island Recordings,” the band explain. “Lyrically, ‘Virgin’ is our attempt to back-pedal rock music's aggressive sexualisation of young people and open invitation to Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page to be locked up in our hotel room for our upcoming UK tour."
