Lizzy & The Triggermen is inspiring people all over the world to get up and dance with a compelling visual for their new single, “Dance Song (for the End of the World).” The 10-piece swing band invited friends from 15 countries, spanning 6 continents to join their giant quarantine dance party-turned music video for the single. The video features a new single, “Dance Song (for the End of the World),” from their forthcoming debut EP (‘Good Songs for Bad Times’) that feels eerily relevant despite being written by the lead singer before the pandemic. The EP is set for release on May 14th.
“The feel good dance song isn’t actually about the world ending, but rather how to find joy and hope when it feels like it is. It is about lifting people’s spirits through music and dance during scary times,” says Lizzy Shapiro.
“In an effort to do just that, we reached out to friends all over the globe with only one request: film yourself dancing at home. What came back was a truly amazing array of unique, inspiring and hilarious videos.” The “Dance Song (for the End of the World)” music video features some of the top swing dancers in the world like Remy Kouakou Kouame and Vincenzo Fesi. The song was arranged by jazz vet, Dan Barrett and features lead vocals by Lizzy Shapiro, harmony vocals by Liz Beebe (Dustbowl Revival) and the San Andreas Sisters. The music video was directed by Justin Nijm and Jack Bishop and produced by Nikki Marvin.
