I first heard Dance Yourself to Death for the first time when I was volunteering as a stage hand at the NXNE music festival in Toronto this past summer. It was the second of the three nights I worked at the Cameron House, and just by the name of the band I thought it was going to be something I would enjoy. After talking to Jen from the band, I was caught off guard when she took the mic since I didn’t know she was the singer, but after the first couple of bars I was sold. I bought their 4 song EP that night and it became a regular listen over the summer.
Their songs sound like they can fill arenas opening for a mid-80’s Bruce Springsteen or Genesis, or some pop rock band of that era. The melodies are catchy and backed with lyrics interesting enough to grab attention. I ran into Jen again a week or so ago at a Land of Talk concert, and found out that they have their first LP due out next Wednesday, so check out iTunes or go to their myspace for more details.
