Listen: Glasgow’s Dancer Share New Single ‘Bluetooth Hell’

Glasgow-based band Dancer have returned with their latest single, ‘Bluetooth Hell’, a jittery art-rock offering with a Life Without Buildings charm. ‘Bluetooth Hell’ turns to the 21st century’s dependence on technology, more specifically, when that technology doesn’t work.

The band explained, “Nothing seems to work anymore, everything sleek and new falls apart, malfunctions, or is security protected”.

The single comes only a few weeks before their debut album, ‘10 Songs I Hate About You’, due for release via Spanish label Meritorio on March 15th. Recorded and mixed at Green Door Studio by Ronan Fay and mastered by Álvaro Lissón, ‘10 Songs I Hate About You’ endeavours to pinpoint a signature Dancer sound, one that collates both what they have been and what they are into one fine-tuned bundle.

Vocalist Gemma Fleet added that ‘Bluetooth Hell’ “started with a thought triggered from the infuriating reality of trying to pair Bluetooth devices, specifically headphones issued to me at a new job. I just quite like a wire, call me old fashioned, but it’s generally reliable and doesn’t run out of batteries”.

Addressing modern qualms from the perspective of the noughties’ more mathy corners, Dancer have identified and leaned into their strengths, a fluency that is sure to prove valuable to their debut.
