a follow up to their synth-pop Marina EP with a more up-tempo, high intensity offering. Dance Floor comes complete with fantastic screeching guitar solos, Casio keys and analogue sound production that wouldn’t seem out of place soundtracking an early nineties American TV show.

Content wise, the band say the songs have a smidge of “heartbreak with desperation”, something that comes out in lead vocalist Dan’s pleading vocals as he sings about dance and desire. The EP is retro, stylised and crammed with the energy and charm of a Vice City discotheque, painting a picture of high flying individuals in baggy, sky blue suits and tight black cocktail dresses pulling up in open top sports cars whilst camera shots pan in catching their smiles.

Track Name: Dance Floor
Vers 1
i'm just love sick for you girl
the way you dance , the way move,
the way you twirl
You set my heart on fire
girl i don;t want to get burnt.

Oh how can i see you again?
I've tried every port of call
your not friends with my friends
you said tomorrow night
boy i'm going to take you higher

I want it, i need i just can't believe it the love that I'm feeling i found
on the dance floor i know i find you on the dance floor!

I've searched this place three times
stood in the same place as last night
like a phoenix from the flames
you arrive like there's nothing a matter

I sent three txt's without a reply
there were 2 calls you clearly denied
you said boy i know i did
i gave you an answer

Track Name: Hot City Nights
Vers 1:
Dance all day, Work all night
your pretty lips they get you
what you like.
Bright lights shining the city draws you in
but she ain't going home she's going
out again

Vers 2:
Drop dead eye's that'll put you
on your knees
she's the girl that you want
but your the game that she feeds
moves through the shadows as
she heads for the door
she's got everything you want and a
little bit more

They don't see what i see to me your beautiful
they don't see what i see
and now i want it all
they don't see what i see
why don't you listen to me Ive got
something to say
to me your beautiful

Vers 3:
Head to the street work a little
kiss her on the lips
kiss her in your arms
what do you want from me
i've got a nasty reputation
eat boys like you alive
without no hesitation
Track Name: Ran Out of Love
Vers 1
Ran out on love
she's gonna leave
she's not coming back
she don't believe

She's got it all worked out
but he doesn't know
leaves in the morning
when he's home

Vers 2
You want more space
i get iti want you to know
i won;t suffocate you baby
I'd just give you love

She's got it all worked out
but he doesn't know
leaves in the morning
when he's home

I've got something to tell you
and you've got something to say
i can see it in your eye's your leaving
and you know that i want you to stay

you ran out of love on love on love
