Oct. 1 — Alt-rock band Dancing on Tables is giving audiences their first preview of its forthcoming EP.
The band premiered its new single, ‘Oh‘ and the song’s companion video Friday. The band premiered the song’s video through Flood magazine. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming EP, Play Play Play, which is scheduled for release Oct. 29 through ENCI Records.
The light, poppy sound and stylistic approach taken with the song’s musical arrangement makes the song infectious in its simplicity. It is comparable, to a point, to works from the likes of Modest Mouse and other similar acts.
The lyrical theme featured in ‘Oh’ is clearly about a relationship; that one person pining for the company of the other when that person is away.
The video for ‘Oh’ features the band performing its single together in an empty building and blends that with footage of nature scenes from across Scotland, the band’s home nation.
Co-lead guitarist and vocalist Callum Thomas talked about the song and its video in a prepared statement.
”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,” he said. “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,”
Added 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”
