TUNE Dancehall - KO
Dancehall releases new single ‘KO’ via their own Vibe/Anti Vibe label on 13th October in tandem with Cassette Store Day.
Owing to the band’s obsession with recording songs as efficiently as possible, ‘KO’ and it’s B-side ‘Vitamins’ were both recorded in a single evening at the band’s rehearsal space. Once the recording was completed, they all fell asleep under the control desk in the live room. They next day they returned to their respective jobs, feeling grubby and groggy, but with a great sense of accomplishment.
Lyrically, bassist and singer Tim (ex Kill Kenada) attacks an old work colleague’s jaded complacency. Through a barrage of fuzzed up power chords and tight drum fills, Tim coerces him to get up and actually do something thrilling rather than settle for mediocrity.
Dancehall will play: Sept: The Roadtrip & Workshop London (20th), The Lock Tavern London (28th) Oct: The Lock Tavern London (13th), Roodkapje Rotterdam (15th), Harbour Arm Folkestone (18th). More TBA.
