From Worcester, Massachusetts comes Backwards Dancer, a raw, loud four-piece with equal leanings in emotive pop-punk and grunge.
Featuring Zack Shaw, formerly of The Hotelier, Backwards Dancer released their debut EP earlier this year.
All five tracks give a great early impression of the band, but it’s ‘Rearview’ that really stands out, pounding through verses and a shouty chorus of “do what you want to do!”.
Backwards Dancer released debut EP New Life In Old Shoes on 22nd May and are playing shows.
