Watch the band bringing glam rock energy to the famous 60s classic
The Struts have just released a video for their new single, Dancing In The Street.
The english band gave a glam rock update to the 1964’s song written by Marvin Gaye and William “Mickey” Stevenson and originally performed by Martha and The Vandellas: their rendition is an addictive and bouncy hit that will get you moving all summer long.
In the video, directed by Sebastian Savino, the band livens up a neighborhood while the residents start improvising a fun coreography.
Dancing In The Street has a long history of cover versions which includes the ones recorded by Van Halen (in 1982) and by Mick Jagger and David Bowie (in 1985).
«Our take on ‘Dancing In The Street’ was about bringing in the best elements of all the versions that already exist» said frontman Luke Spiller in a press release. « It’s got soul and feels great to play live. It really gets people moving and dancing of course.»
Formed in Derby, in 2012, The Struts have been praised by many rock ‘n’ roll legends: since their debut they opened for many celebrated bands including The Rolling Stones, The Who and Foo Fighters.
The band released their second album, Young&Dangerous, in October 2018 and has been on tour worldwide participating in prestigious festivals such as Lollapalooza and Isle of Wright. The Struts are currently touring the U.S.A. after a series of shows in Europe. Some months ago, they also announced they will be back for some UK concerts in October 2019.
