Scotland quintet Dante display some upbeat patriotism in the video for their new song 'Son' which has been taken from their upcoming album 'Wake' due to be released on October 8th 2013 through Stitch Records.
The video opens on a scene in a traditional Scottish pub complete with fruit machines, a bearded bartender and lager swigging patrons reading newspapers who suddenly get up to dance as the band starts up. The first stand-out feature of this cheerful track is the strong Scottish accents that complement the traditional folk instrumental created using a violin and an electric mandolin. The choruses have fast guitar riffs and a driving drumbeat that truly makes you get up and dance - though perhaps not in the Scottish barn dance way the pub patrons seem to be doing in the video.
The band; who are singer Sean McLaughlin, violinist Vicky Gray, mandolin player Stephen Thom, drummer Ruaridh Kidd and bassist Stuart Hosking; played their first show at Polmont Young Offenders Institution and have come a long way since then. They are currently touring Scotland and Northern England, and will be supporting the likes of Dry The River and The Birthday Suit on their UK tours during October 2013.
