Scottish Alternative band Dancing On Tables have released their debut full-length album Colour In The Grey, via Enci Records (Fences, Kulick, The Joy Formidable). Creating the album became a way to bring color to their lives over the past three years, and also represents the culmination of a lot of hard work building on their early promise to create their own sound. Their video for “So What” is also out now.
Of their album, the band says:
It feels like the last 3 years of our life have all been building up to this album. You can hear the journey that we’ve been on as a group as you go through the tracks, with stories of love, happiness, loss and frustration sang on top of a sound that we have worked hard to define by combining our original rock influences with our favourite modern music alt-pop styles.
The album is a collection of songs that were put together over a time where as musicians, we were suddenly stuck at home after being used to being on the road for most of the year. Like most people, it was tough for us to stay motivated during this, but working together (remotely) on music was the highlight of each day and left us with over 70 tracks to choose from for this album. For us, writing and recording this album really was the ‘colour in the grey’ of every day life at this point.
The band spent stints on Catfish and The Bottlemen’s arena tour in 2021 and made numerous festival appearances since then. They will be playing UK shows in November and December.
