Dancing on Tables Adapt to Change in Their Lush Video for “OH”
The remastered version of the single will appear on the band’s Play Play Play EP, dropping October 29.
Edinburgh’s Dancing on Tables released their single “OH” nearly four years ago, which means they have a considerably new perspective on it now. The track is one of a handful of familiar tracks being remastered for their Play Play Play EP, set to drop at the end of October, and which will precede their proper debut record promised for 2022. When the bouncy indie-pop track was written the band were still finding their footing as musicians, dreaming of home while embarking on their first string of live dates in the U.S.
“‘OH’ is a track written on our first-ever trip to the States, during a time where we were still getting used to being musicians,” co-vocalist/guitarist Callum Thomas confirms. “This meant spending less and less time with the people and places we knew and loved and adapting to a new way of life, which is reflected throughout the track. Despite this, we still wanted the song to have an air of defiance to it to show that love conquers any amount of distance and time.”
It makes sense, then, that the track’s new Chris Croft–directed visual complementing it’s remastered audio sees them performing the track intercut with time-lapse images of the dramatically lush countryside in their native Scotland to remember their home by next time they’re abroad. “When planning the video, we wanted to get across the beauty of Scotland to represent what we missed at the time, but also show how, as a band, we still love playing the track that started our journey to this point,” Thomas continues. “It makes it the perfect song to share with the world before we release our debut album in 2022 as, no matter where we end up, we’ll still relate to how we felt writing the track in the first place.”
