EXCLUSIVE: Dantevilles share new track ‘The Fighter’

Ahead of the release of their forthcoming self-titled EP, Manchester soul pop four-piece Dantevilles have announced the release of ‘The Fighter.’

Following ‘It Might Be Tomorrow’ and ‘Blackjack,’ which received support from John Kennedy on Radio X and BBC Introducing Manchester, ‘The Fighter’ pairs upbeat, groove-ridden rhythms with meaningful lyrics. Speaking of the track, the band say:

“No matter how much you get beaten down always come back fighting – Britain is a small island with a tribal mentality, it’s deep routed within our culture and has been for generations. A bit like a band is a modern day gang, we wanted a tune that related to the true British mentality to keep fighting even when you’re down and to stick together. ‘The Fighter’ to us is our first proper example of an anthemic, ‘put your arms round each other’ kind of chorus, with elements of disco thrown in there!”

Dantevilles stand out as a new breed of Manchester band, ‘The Fighter’ proof that their unique brand of alternative pop is super fresh, and very exciting.


‘The Fighter’ is out tomorrow (6 April) with Dantevilles EP out on 11 May.
The band play a launch show at Manchester’s Soup Kitchen on 1st June and tickets are available from Dice.
