Description

Few bands are as capable of being as direct and effective as Dancehall. The London/Kent-based trio who formed in 2016, run on a mix of egoless ambition which has seen the band relentlessly self-release a collection of singles bristling with distorted energy via cassette tapes and 7" records on their own Vibe/Anti-Vibe label.

Debut 7" single 'Vs & Gs' documented their anxious presence in the capital, rejecting thick slick adverts in favour of escape, with lead singer Timothy screaming "I'm ready/To blow!" over the thumping verge of a panic attack. Since their bedroom demo originals, Dancehall work completely collaboratively, each member bringing ideas together and working on the songs at their practice space in Limehouse to create a mix of songs that represents their musical heroes influence on the members: from DIY punk trailblazers Fugazi and the harnessed noise of Sonic Youth, to the driving melancholy of LCD Soundsystem and the less-cited catchy balladry of the B-52s and Blur.

Press Quotes

"A real jolt to the system, a short, sharp shock that contains a wealth of ideas underneath its crucial multi-colour surface."

Clash Music

9/10 "A very impressive debut"

Drowned In Sound

"To do any form of post-punk high energy music you do have to fulfil one precondition – you have to have a lot of energy and transform it into meaningful, loud and listenable (danceable will do too) music. London trio Dancehall and their debut album The Band tick all those boxes right from the starting blocks."
