Track of the Week: Dancing On Tables, “OH” (2021)

Scotland’s Dancing On Tables have just released the new music video for single “OH“. With EP Play Play Play due out later this month, and the band recently signing to Enci Records/LV Music, now’s the perfect time to get into the rising alt-rockers.

Fresh off a recent supporting stint on Catfish and The Bottlemen’s arena tour, and having their music featured in recent Schuh x Adidas and Scottish Water ad campaigns, Dancing On Tables’ have already made quite the name for themselves in the UK. As well as featuring on major playlists such as New Music Friday, The Pop List and Breaking Alternative, they were also named one of Variety Magazine’s ”10 Brits To Watch.”

The Dancing On Tables sound is bouncy, anthemic indie-pop, and “OH” is the perfect showcase of that.

OH” is a track written on our first-ever trip to the states, during a time where we were still getting used to being musicians. This meant spending less and less time with the people and places we knew and loved and adapting to a new way of life, which is reflected throughout the track,” says co-lead vocalist and guitarist Callum Thomas.

“Despite this, we still wanted the song to have an air of defiance to it to show that love conquers any amount of distance and time. When planning the video, we wanted to get across the beauty of Scotland to represent what we missed at the time but also show how, as a band, we still love playing the track that started our journey to this point. It makes it the perfect song to share with the world before we release our debut album in 2022 as, no matter where we end up, we’ll still relate to how we felt writing the track in the first place.”

Alright, that’s enough talk – give “OH” a listen below!

Dancing On Tables’ Play Play Play is out on October 29th.
Stay up to date with the band via their website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
