Alt-rock-pop trio The Happy Fits have returned with their second vibrant single, “Dance Alone” today. The ideal companion to a lonely night, “Dance Alone” will brighten any mood and bring anyone to their feet. Listen to the song now below.
Ross Monteith (guitarist/vocals), who played a central role in bringing this song to life, explains, “It’s easy to say exactly what you want to someone in your mind but feelings can be a lot harder to express when you are face to face with them in reality. This song is one example of my inner dialogue when faced with that exact situation; a love song riddled with self doubt.”
Calvin Langman (electric cellist/lead vocalist) says, “Everything about this song is a beautiful reflection of Ross’ pure soul.” After several rewrites, the band knew they needed to keep Monteith’s verse, and had to figure out how to land on something that would stick.”
Luke Davis (drums) recalls the moment they found it, “Late one night when we were all packing up still torn on the idea of the chorus, Ross almost jokingly blurted out “I don’t wanna dance alone”. The whole room stopped and we all waited a few moments until jumping right back in jamming on the melody for almost an hour. This chorus really brought together the rest of the vibe for the song and has become a personal favorite for all of us! “
Langman adds, “It felt so good to put into words how those many, many lonely nights in quarantine were spent, wishing to be back out on the streets dancing without a care.”
The Happy Fits will return to the stage at Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta on May 1st at 6pm, and later will complete the second leg of their headline North American What Could Be Better Tour as it picks back up with Sarah & The Sundays in Louisville, KY on May 3rd. Tickets are available now HERE.
