SINGLE REVIEW: Dancing With Death (THE DOLLAR BILL MURRAYS)
SINGLE: Dancing With Death ARTIST: The Dollar Bill Murrays Save the last dance of 2017 for Brisbane rockers The Dollar Bill Murrays and their insanely fun new single 'Dancing With Death'. Touching down as the first sign of new music since the quartet's fuzz-laden sophomore EP 'Always On' earlier this year, 'Dancing With Death' brings a bounce and a wink to some spicy counter licks and crashing cymbals - it's the overdrive we know and love TDBM for, but with a renewed fire and flamboyant grooves (plus just the right amount of cowbell that would make Christopher Walken proud).
Produced by Brock Weston at Bedlam Studios, there's a glossy sheen over the grit as the boys weave a dance-tastic ode to late-night revels: "The song came from late nights in Fortitude Valley, watching people throwing themselves into the night without a care, with no idea of what'll happen" says singer Felix Lindgren.
This year has been a large one for this buzzing bunch, including releasing their EP, dropping their debut music video, embarking on their first interstate tour - and fittingly, the boys may now be able to facilitate many future after-dark adventures after their recent collaboration with local beer makers All Inn Brewing Co and Support Act, producing an award-winning beer: the Bill F. Murray Malt Liquor
Dancing With Death is ultimately the icing on the cake of a stellar 2017 for The Dollar Bill Murrays - it's slick, it's saucy and it'll definitely get you dancing Lonely Boy-style around the living room (two Christopher Walken references in one review? A personal best). Or, you can dance in person with The Dollar Bill Murrays when they take this show on the road, touring 'Dancing With Death' in QLD and NSW in 2018. More info below.
