Review: Dancing On Tables – “How Do I Get Back To Her?”-Release date July 22, 2022

The Album Colour in the Grey will be released on October 14, 2022 via Enci Records

Dancing on TablesOver in Scotland they always had a knack for some good, melody and harmony-laden power pop in all shapes and forms. You don’t have to go any further than Teenage Fanclub or eighties faves like Orange Juice or Aztec Camera. You can even sneak in Belle & Sebastian there.

It seems that Dancing On Tables, one of relatively new Scottish newcomers is really bent on continuing that tradition with some strong guitar/harmony combination, as evidenced on their new single ‘How Do I Get Back To Her,’ taken off their upcoming album ‘Colour Of Grey’ (October 14, 2022).

The quintet seems to be getting the attention all around with even Variety Magazine including them in their recent “10 Brits To Watch” list.

Talking about the single that will actually open their upcoming album, the gays had this to say, “”How Do I Get Back to Her?” is a fast, fun song about the reflection on a ruined relationship. It was originally a slow, somber track, but when we were in the studio, deciding which songs would make the cut, we played it at double the speed and instantly unlocked exactly how the song should feel.”

And within its three minutes and so Dancing On Tables simply confirm that the true spirit of power pop is still alive and well.
