AMBY: Hey there The Dancers! What’s the band been up to lately?

The Dancers: Hi there ! Oh, we’ve released a homemade video for “For Something In Your Eyes”, our new single. We had a spotlight on Dailymotion, it was nice! There’s a full EP with a Bside and amazing remixes available on iTunes if you’re curious. Also, we’re in the 8 finalists for the Glastonbury emerging talent competition and we’ve been invited to play for The Great Escape Launch Party in Brighton. All great!

AMBY: How would you describe your sound in three words?

The Dancers: Sincere, edgy and catchy.

AMBY: What does the band have planned for the year?

The Dancers: We’d like to release another single around May, and we’ll play a few festivals around France & UK!

AMBY: How did the band come up with the name The Dancers?

The Dancers: We were looking for a simple, and memorable name. I really like Wild Beast’s album “Two Dancers”, and it clicked!

AMBY:
 For Something In Your Eyes just makes me happy. Such a great song! What’s the track about?

The Dancers: It’s about realizing that you’re going the wrong direction, and sometimes you have to stumble to stand up again. That sounds quite naive, haha!

AMBY: Speaking of For Something In Your Eyes, the video is spectacular! How did you come up with the concept?

The Dancers: I had the idea of doing this animation with the keyboard, and some piece of colorful paper. Then, we exchanged so much ideas with Corentin, the guitarist, and we built up the whole story board! After that I started to paint different shapes and take photos… we did a lot of experiment, and Corentin was doing well with After Effects!!

AMBY: What’s a lyric you’ll never get enough of?

The Dancers: If you’re talking about lyrics of a song, I would say “Across The Universe” by John Lennon.

AMBY: If you could invite three people to dinner who would you choose?

The Dancers: My mum, my father, and my grandma.

AMBY: If you could tour with anyone, who would it be and why?

The Dancers: Right now I would say Archie Bronson Outfit, because they are so great.

AMBY: What has you excited for 2013?

The Dancers: Being in Brighton, this wonderful city!

AMBY: And last but never least, what’s something about The Dancers that nobody knows yet?

The Dancers: That’s private…
