Album Review: Dancing On Tables - 'Colour In The Grey'

Scotland's Dancing On Tables release debut atmospheric pop-punk/ power pop full-length experience, 'Colour In The Grey.'



Dancing On Tables, a Scottish five-piece pop-rock band have been on a whirlwind journey to find what defines their sound since 2018. Since their debut on the scene with their 2018 EP release, Space Race, Dancing On Tables have displayed contagious and anthemic energy, leaving a lasting impression. The band has spent the last three years of their career honing their sound in preparation for the release of their new album, Colour In The Grey. Their journey can be heard from beginning to end as they share their story of love, joy, loss, and frustration all in one experience. Colour In The Grey is the first step for the pop-rock band, combining pop-rock with a variety of other genres in this multigenre moment.


"Other moments such as "Letters," are gorgeously crafted from their emotional lyrics to the instrumental framework, taking us into turning points like "Bubblegum" and "High." Full of ethereal crystalized guitars and a glittery pop-rock atmosphere, both tracks exemplify the talents of the Scottish pop-rock band."

Colour In The Grey starts with a charismatic and impressive first impression, "How Do I Get Back To Her." It's a great way to begin the album, with bright guitar riffs, punchy percussive energy, and dreamy vocals.

Other moments such as "Letters," are gorgeously crafted from their emotional lyrics to the instrumental framework, taking us into turning points like "Bubblegum" and "High." Full of ethereal crystalized guitars and a glittery pop-rock atmosphere, both tracks exemplify the talents of the Scottish pop-rock band.

The third to last track, "So What," is an arena pop-rock centerpiece. A full-bodied experience powered up with impactful guitars, melodic vocals, and robust drum delivery, Dancing On Tables shows they have matured within their three years, and it shows in their delivery.

The album concludes with the dynamic conclusion, "Rollercoaster Love." The album ends on a catchy note of summer powerpop pleasure. For a debut record, this is a solid effort for the pop-rock band. While this is just the beginning for these guys, Colour In The Grey is a strong beginning for them.
