'If You Like To Dance' are an alternative pop duo from Warrington, currently based in Leeds, who combine synth' driven dance beats with the songwriting sensibilities of an indie-style guitar band.
Their track 'Skin & Bone' from their forthcoming E.P, titled 'We Do Things Differently Here' which they have recently recorded with UK production team "Sugar House Music" is added to the BBC Radio 1 playlist!
It will be played from the 3rd of June on the following shows, Monday: Sara Cox, Greg James, Dev, Scott Mills, Huw Stephens & Gemma Cairney.
Influenced by artists such as Bloc Party and Two Door Cinema Club, who incorporate a dance element into their music, If You Like To Dance decided they wanted to take this idea a step further. Opting to use drum machines and mixing software with live vocals, bass and guitar, their performances have the driving momentum of a DJ set whilst retaining the organic feel of a live band.
Their debut E.P, titled 'We Do Things Differently Here' will be available to download from all major online stores from 3rd June 2013.
The music video for the song 'Skin & Bone' is now available on YouTube:
'If You Like to Dance' are appearing at 360 Club, The Library, Leeds on Friday 31st May.
