The Majorleans are a New York-based lo-fi rock project led by singer-songwriter Nick Francis DiFonzo and guitarist Chris Buckle, with Christian Bongers on bass and Colin Brooks on drums.
Today, they’re debuting their titillating new single “Dancing With The Darkside.”
“I had originally written this song for the band Mother Feather, or with them in mind at least,” said DiFonzo, who typically channels organic, roots-based songwriting for The Majorleans. “They passed on it, and I realized that even though it was stylistically a bit different from our other stuff, that we had fun indulging some of the more rock-club, dancefloor vibes that we dig but aren’t a huge part of our sound. The lyrics just came in a whirl like they always do, and the chorus was certainly emboldened by the post-election malaise here in NYC last winter. I’m not a topical writer, but the sentiment seemed apt to the times.”
