Halifax alt-pop duo Neon Dreams return today with their new release ‘Little Dance’. Meditative, joyful and celebratory in tone, the song embodies everyone’s unique dance under the sun.

The track was inspired by vocalist Frank Kadillac’s shark diving experience in South Africa following the band’s recent tour there:

“After finishing our first tour of South Africa we decided to go shark diving. I had a phobia of drowning but felt it was time to face my fears.I jumped in the water and opened my eyes. There was a shark staring right at my face, my heart was pumping so I panicked. As I was collecting my breath I started hearing this melody my head that kept getting louder… I left the Ocean to grab my phone and record the melody which eventually become the chorus of ‘Little Dance’.

Days before while attending a meditation retreat, I was walking through the garden observing how life works through the birds and little annoying flies when I had a perspective shift. Those little annoying flies were not annoying, they were dancing. They were finding purpose. They were falling in love. they don’t live long. But they do their best to enjoy each moment from sun up to sundown. One of the observations I wrote down in my book was… everyone is doing their own dance through life and if you see someone dancing in your direction you have the choice to dance with them or let them pass by and continue your dance… It’s just a little dance under the sun. We completed the the song with the help of a local Cape Town musician named Majozi and an amazing producer from Potchefstroom named Dolfe. I played then my voice note from the shark trip and it was like we were all hypnotised into a transcendental state. We started 9 am and worked all the way until midnight. This moment is the reason why I’m still in South Africa… not because of the tour but because of the magic in this place.” – Frank Kadillac, Neon Dreams
