Named as one of Variety Magazine’s ”10 Brits To Watch,” Scottish alternative pop-rockers Dancing On Tables are gearing up for the release of their debut album ‘Colour In The Grey’ out October 14 on Enci Records (Fences, Kulick, The Joy Formidable).
The first single off the album “How Do I Get Back To Her?” is out now and streaming everywhere.
The band says, “”How Do I Get Back to Her?” is a fast, fun song about the reflection on a ruined relationship. It was originally a slow, somber track, but when we were in the studio, deciding which songs would make the cut, we played it at double the speed and instantly unlocked exactly how the song should feel.
We’re firm believers that just because you have lyrics that look at a deep subject, the music behind should be able to tell its own story. In this case, it has a fast-paced, chaotic feel to it to represent what was a turbulent relationship that is now being viewed through rose-tinted glasses.
The song is the first on the tracklist, so opening the album with the words ‘I’ve been trying to figure out where it all went wrong, you’ve been telling me to write it in a song’ is a sarcastic nod to the hectic life of trying to make it in music and all the highs and lows that go with it.”

Named as one of Variety Magazine’s ”10 Brits To Watch,” Scottish alternative rock band Dancing On Tables are debuting a music video for the newly remastered version of their single “Black”, which appears on the upcoming 5 song EP titled ‘Play Play Play’ out October 29 via Enci Records/LV Music. The video tracks the quintet’s journey from when they released the original version of the track to now.
On the release, the band say:
“‘Black’ is essentially a story about a friend of ours who went through a break up that completely crushed him. They weren’t together anymore, but it seemed like his life was more dominated by them than ever. The title plays on the mourning aspect of someone post-relationship, going through the different stages of accepting that something is never coming back.
With the video, we used footage from the last few years to show how we’ve grown as a band from the time we first released the track. It was important to us that it felt positive, as the person the song was written about has moved on with his life in that time and we wanted the video to reflect that.”
With an ever-growing fanbase in the UK and beyond, the band’s profile continues to rise. A recent supporting stint on Catfish and The Bottlemen’s arena tour, festival appearances, placements in ad campaigns for Schuh x Adidas and Scottish Water, and inclusion on major playlists, such as New Music Friday, The Pop List and Breaking Alternative have all helped to put the spotlight on these promising young lads.
