Drenge have shared a new video for latest banger, ‘This Dance’

“Could Drenge write a dance number?”
Drenge have shared a new video for ‘This Dance’, their first track in three years.

“Could Drenge write a dance number?” asks the band’s Eoin Loveless. “We sat in a tiny bedroom with a fizzing guitar line, programming some beats into a computer.

“It was different to how we usually worked. We went to a wedding, and like all weddings, we ended up on the dance floor, belting out 80s chart hits like we were on the barrier at a Slayer concert. Our arms and legs collided with each others, with our friends and with complete strangers. Dance like nobody’s watching and then hope they don’t call the police.

“I watched The Thing and thought about what would happen if Kurt Russell’s MacReady spent the movie fighting off the extraterrestrial organisms with tunes instead of guns. I thought about all the nightclubs I’d never be allowed to go in or would be too scared to enter. I let it manifest into the lyrics of the song, like the monsters in The Thing.”

You can find the duo at both Deer Shed Festival on 20th July, and Truck Festival the following day. The third album is expected later this year.
