Dance Laura Dance is the powerful new track from Manchester-based folk act Sleep Walking Animals.
By Graeme Smith
It’s a track that starts slow and measured while building up to a big, emotive climax. The music mirrors the song’s story – one of survival and recovery. Each new layers of the arrangement feels like a leap of confidence while the eponymous Laura goes from a hospital bed to the dancefloor.
Dance Laura Dance is a beautifully observed track from a band who I’m really getting into. You can check it out below and don’t forget to have a read of my review of their track Wild Folk too. Finally, if you’re looking for more music that’s just right, check out our Golidlocks playlist on Spotify.
