“I wrote Dancing Shoes about a year and a half ago,” says singer James Potter of the track. “It was during a time in my life where I was really struggling to deal with noticing pain and depression within my immediate family and found it difficult to talk about, so I used the writing of this song as therapy. It is very sad but I feel better now it’s written and hope others can take comfort from the song too.”
The video is directed by Dylan Moore.
The group are currently on tour supporting fellow Glasgow-based band The Ninth Wave. Tickets are on sale now.
