Wildcard (week 12):
Dande & The Lion – Children Of The Hour

Dande & The Lion is an indie pop rock band from Bristol, UK and Sydney, Australia, where they’re based. Itโ€™s fronted by dual vocalists Natassa Zoรซ (guitar) and Abbey Gardner (synths), backed by Chris Gabriel (drums) and Nicholas Shea (backing vocals and bass). They cite bands such as The Naked & Famous, Metric, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Wolf Alice as their influences.

Children Of The Hour is the quartetโ€™s latest single. A shimmering combination of indie-rock and bouncy electropop, thatโ€™ll do well on festivals and dance floors alike. Lyrically, the song is all about being playful in the moment and following the feeling, rather than over-thinking things.

Talking about how she wrote the tune, Zoรซย explains:ย โ€œI was sitting in Centennial Park in Sydney waiting to be picked up. Iโ€™d just finished reading a play called โ€˜The Childrenโ€™s Hourโ€™ and that kicked off the songwriting process. My ride was late which allowed me to finish the entire song all in one go which was kind of cool.โ€

The track was produced by talent Aussie producer Xavier Dunn, whose name has featured here many times already. He created a mesmeric cut that sees ardent intimacies erupt into explosive, danceable choruses.

Children Of The Hour by Dande & The Lion is the new Carte Blanche Music Wildcard. That means itโ€™ll be featured prominently at the top of the blog for a whole week.
