Harry Bodley-Scott is your new favourite singer songwriter. With an upbeat sound that calls to mind the likes of Inhaler, Ed Sheeran, Lewis Capaldi, and Hozier all at once, the London-based singer-songwriter’s new single, ‘Bad Dancing’ is one you’ll not want to miss.
‘Bad Dancing’ is anthemic, yet incredibly danceable – whether it’s bad dancing or not. Bodley-Scott uses his guitar like it’s a part of him; you feel the love he has for making music – it’s clearly a very important part of his life. Harry’s lyric ability is also quite evident, with a great gift for storytelling. ‘Bad Dancing’ is a love song of sorts, about letting loose and just being yourself, no matter what the circumstances are around you. It’s a reminder that life is for living – despite the tragedy that surrounds us, we still must take time out to enjoy ourselves – otherwise what’s the point?
Not only that, it’s a reminder that we shouldn’t take too much to heart what others think of us: more often than not the ones we perceive to be judging us are thinking about us in the same way. Harry says,
“Being Yourself is not something you try to do, it’s something you let yourself do when you can stop trying to manage how you are perceived. So, Dance Badly, be yourself.”
‘Bad Dancing’ is out now on all streaming platforms. Find out more about Harry Bodley-Scott and his music online on his official website, Instagram, Facebook, Spotify, Apple Music, SoundCloud, and YouTube.
