They’re barely in their twenties and, while their music is filled with references that date back to before some of them were even born, Louis , Joseph and Gabrielle already seem to have the poise and mastery of an indie band. Now Keep Dancing Inc release their all-new single 'Radio' accompanied by a captivation video.
A few years after hitting the scene, Keep Dancing Inc’ s suave yet serene course of action clearly demands admiration. They have toured extensively throughout Europe with Blossoms , played with Altin Gün, Palmbomen, PVA and Mykki Blanco, and have carved out a serious reputation as one of the best live bands around , similar to some of the most vivid groove-machines from back in the day .
"I remember writing the song pretty quickly in the summer of 2021," Charles recalls. "I was full of unanswered existential questions at that time and was scared of what their answers might be. This song is about the frustration one can feel in the face of all the projects that turned out the wrong way and how music can drive us to go back on track. We tried to translate that angst and that liberation into urgency. Stylistically speaking, the song lays between the power-pop of Dogs, the Primitives or the Only Ones, the krautrocky electronic Post-punk of Squid and Neu!, as well as the Indie Rock Stadium Anthems of New Order and OMD and a touch of the Strokes in the second part. It's definitely our most straight forward and in-your-face song.”
“Despite its name, the music video for ‘Radio’ was thought of as an homage to the way television used to englobe us,” shares Thomas, director of the ‘Radio’ video. “Playing with the memory of what some storefronts used to look like - patchworks of TV screens, an always-surrounding flow of images never really noticed - as well as finding inspiration from old school music shows we grew up watching on television, often late at night. Through these images, working with this comforting sense of nostalgia, we wanted to echo the song’s lyrics, about how images and stories accompany us, as a way of escaping the rigorous monotony of everyday life.”
