Blitzen Trapper – Dance With Me 
Blitzen Trapper - Dance With Me

Release Date: Out Now

They may look like a bunch of ringers for an underground bare-knuckle fighting circle, but Portland’s Blitzen Trapper actually have a lot more love in their hearts than their press picture would suggest. New single ‘Dance With Me’ is something of a warning shot prior to an album release and US and European tour dates. Things get started immediately with a pleasing rock’n’roll MOR chug and smooth vocals pleading with you to dance just one more time. Elements of Red Kross, Grandaddy and all the great 70s American AM Radio rock’n’roll bands are all there in a hearty, satisfying soup just ready for you to dip your bread in and get supping. The addition of the improbably fantastic dance off video between two groups of seemingly bored office workers is a touch of genius and makes me more fond of these guys than I expected to find myself.
