This week's single, 15/02/16:

Learn to Kiss - Dancing Years

This week's single comes from Leeds' five piece Dancing Years. Learn to Kiss is a mellow folk-pop track that pulls at the heartstrings: David Henshaw's vocals are yearning, blistering with emotion. It's a single that builds, multiple instrumental layers being introduced as the vocals rise to a symphonic climax. The band have been praised for the instrumental experimentation that creates their distinct orchestral sound, the likes of string harmonies and synthesisers a consistency in their music. Learn to Kiss is the title track of Dancing Year's newly released EP, featuring three more great songs entitled Valentine, Neon Lights and April.

Dancing Years have compiled quite an impressive catalogue of support tours and the acts which they've played under are incredibly telling of their own sound: Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Dry the River, Jamie N Commons, James Vincent McMorrow, Stornoway and Wolf Alice have all recognised the band's talent and they're beginning to generate a lot of excitement. With support from Huw Stephens and Jen Long (Radio 1) as well as Steve Lamacq (Radio 6 Music), Dancing Years continue to make a name for themselves and Learn to Kiss only marks them further as ones to watch.
