SONG PICK: Dead Menace – Moving to Japan
When I came across Dance Routine, the three-track EP by British alternative electronic pop-band Dead Menace, I knew immediately that I wanted to feature “Moving to Japan” on glamglare because the song has plenty of heart in its infectious dark electro-beat body. It also helps that Dead Menace cites some acts as their inspiration that we were and still are rather fond of: The Prodigy, Noisy, and The Chemical Brothers. Naturally, I wanted to know a bit more about “Moving to Japan” and reached out to Kit, Jack, and Dan, the three brothers who together form Dead Menace. Kit says:
Moving to Japan is a fun one.. it feels unique, we love its sound and we’re very happy with where we arrived at on the overall production.
The song is about being in too deep, when you’ve seen all the red flags but walk straight on past them and instead get led by infatuation.
Agreed on the song’s exquisite and fun production! Kit reveals further:
We’ve all had those moments in relationships, everyone has at least one story. The song is a comical and exaggerated take on what happens when the overreach of desire takes over and even though someone is offering you the world – you just don’t want it!
