Have a listen to their third SoundCloud listing, Vs and Gs. This rampant track is A-side to the band's debut 7" vinyl release, coming to you lovely people on October 21st. By pumping hints of shoegaze into an already adrenaline-feulled set-up, DANCEHALL have birthed a sound that epitomises the phrase "a feast for your ears". They've merged two almost-but-not-quite-the-same genres together, successfully creating an infectious track, that you can't help but dance to.

It's a dead good listen. Give it a shot:
