The Dancers may come from the remote realms of the French countryside, but this band is making a big bang with their bubbly and colourful indie pop. Having met during a music club at school, Corentin (vocals, guitar), Mathieu (drums) and Clémentine (vocals, bass) have come a long way on their musical journey since their formation.
In March 2011, they released their debut effort ‘New Chemistry’. Driven by an accomplished internationally recognisable sound, the six-track EP exudes infectious melodies, captivating choruses and strong vocals supported by a tight harmony of great musicianship. Lead single ‘Eyes Closed’ particularly has all the ingredients of a great pop song with its radio-friendly hook; making it a perfect recipe for mainstream success. As notable acts have proven before, sometimes three is the magic number and this band are potentially the next three-piece with impressive capacity. With the likes of Phoenix, Metric, Bombay Bicycle Club and Vampire Weekend cited as some of their favourites to listen to, followers of these would more than likely be a fan of this trio as they continue to prove they could be as good as their bigger contemporaries.
Having just embarked on a European tour supporting management buddies The Subways, they’ve been living up to their fitting name as they took their explosive set to stage and charmed crowds with their formidable and energetic spirit.
2012 is looking bright- with more tours and a debut full-length album on the cards, The Dancers just might be the most exciting new band in Europe.
