London / England
The Microdance is a protean animal: a band conceived by Alex Keevill, with a vision to encapsulate the most exciting elements of alternative music under the bonnet of one super-charged vehicle. Their sound has been described as a quickening blend of shoegaze, alt rock, new wave, dream pop, psychedelia and heavy metal. But the truth is that there is no stylistic limit to their capabilities. An aesthetic thread woven throughout their music tastefully blurs the lines between a myriad of genres; the result: an aural cocktail - delicious, zestful and super refreshing. An immaculate balance between singer-songwriter and band allows for a harmonious and collective sound. Heavy passages fizz with electric energy, balancing on that knife edge where beauty co-exists with rage. The quieter moments are at times brittle and sparse, at others luxuriously dense, weighty and dark. Most importantly for The Microdance, the song is always king.
