Alt-Rock-Pop trio The Happy Fits return with their second single, Dance Alone,” taking on the self-doubt and the fear of being alone and quelling them. The new song has a drum machine-backed beat by Producer Ayad Al Adhamy.

Ross Monteith (guitarist/vocals), who played a central role in bringing this song to life, explains:

It’s easy to say exactly what you want to someone in your mind but feelings can be a lot harder to express when you are face to face with them in reality. This song is one example of my inner dialogue when faced with that exact situation; a love song riddled with self doubt.

Luke Davis (drums) recalls the moment the band solved the song:

Late one night when we were all packing up still torn on the idea of the chorus, Ross almost jokingly blurted out “I don’t wanna dance alone”. The whole room stopped and we all waited a few moments until jumping right back in jamming on the melody for almost an hour. This chorus really brought together the rest of the vibe for the song and has become a personal favorite for all of us! 

After a run on the road with The Maine, The Happy Fits will return to the stage at Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta on May 1st at 6pm, and later will complete the second leg of their headline North American What Could Be Better Tour as it picks back up with Sarah & The Sundays in Louisville, KY on May 3rd.
