Established in 2007, Dance, You’re on Fire has become an ever present force on the South African music landscape.
Described as a meeting point between rock ‘n roll and indie, the Johannesburg based quintet seeks to fuse imminently listenable pop hooks with a fondness for musical exploration and creativity.
Released in February 2010; Dance, You’re on Fire’s debut album ‘Secret Chiefs’ spawned six number one singles including ‘Boxes of Tigers’, ‘Michelle’ and ‘Infinity’. This led to frequent national tours and performances at several prominent South African music festivals.
The band also earned number one slots on DSTV’s MK channel for several music videos including ‘Michelle’ and ‘Infinity’ while securing attention from leading media publications such as Cosmopolitan, Heat, 5fm and Channel 24.
Additionally; Dance, You’re on Fire secured the ‘Best Indie’ title during the MK Awards 2012 ceremony.
Recently, the group concluded work on their second studio album, entitled ‘Light Repeating’, which is due to be released through South Africa’s largest independent record label, Just Music.
Signalling somewhat of a sonic departure for the group, this collection of eleven tracks offers a greater insight into Dance, You’re on Fire’s aspirations towards creating a varied body of work. Still, the album remains true to the band’s roots by delivering radio friendly offerings such as lead single ‘Speak to Me’.
Lyrically influenced by a two week period in lead singer Tom Manners’ life and complimented by unique album design work, courtesy of Jacques Kleynhans, ‘Light Repeating’ promises to illustrate artistic elements previously unseen on earlier efforts.
With long-time producer and former Wrestlerish pianist, Jacques Du Plessis, newly added to the fold, Dance, You’re on Fire is looking forward to taking their career forward with this new offering.
‘Light Repeating’ is out on the 30th July 2012
