FRESH: ‘Dancing In Love’ – Alice Jemima

Alice Jemima returns with “Dancing In Love”.

by Christopher Smith

After a highly successful summer touring the UK with Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Alice Jemima has just announced an Autumn 2019 release for her second album “Everything Changes” and revealed a new single video for “Dancing In Love”, which she co-wrote with Sophie Ellis Bextor and producer Simon Byrt.

Alice’s new uplifting single is the second track to be revealed from her much anticipated second album. “Dancing In Love” has an upbeat disco theme with retro synths and funk-infused basslines overlaid by Alice’s sugar -sweet, sultry vocals. The video for “Dancing In Love” stars Alice and is a sequined, disco-ball themed affair filmed in a karaoke bar in London, where Alice is surrounded by fun party goers.

In her own words Alice describes her new single “Dancing In Love” as “being about falling in love, and the push and pull of the relationship resembling a dance. Since the release of my debut album two years ago, I’ve moved out of my parent’s home and now share a flat with my boyfriend and so I think this record, like most of the tracks on my new album, reflects a more mature view of love and relationships”.

Alice Jemima released her captivating debut self-titled album in 2017 to much critical acclaim and has achieved over 25-million album streams to date with several of the tracks being placed in adverts for Ralph Lauren, Simple Skincare, Macy’s and Topshop Radio support came from Radio 1’s Huw Stephens (Tip Of The Week) Annie Mac, Sophie Little & Monki and Alice achieved Radio 1 playlisting with her single “Dodged A Bullet”. Other supporters included John Kennedy (Radio X) and Tom Robinson (6Music). Alice has also performed live at Boardmasters, Bestival Lattitude, The Great Escape and SXSW.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
