Ahead of the release of their debut EP, Leeds-based band Dancing Years have unveiled the video for title track Learn To Kiss.

The video was filmed over two days in over 15 locations in their home city and Yorkshire, wanting to explore the intimacy and honesty of the words “nobody taught me, taught me how to kiss.”

The band said of the video: “There is a vulnerability in being on camera by yourself, you are forced to examine every blemish and every expression you never realised you had. The song is six minutes long so the viewer is allowed a lot of time to become acquainted and to let their eyes wander. We’ve found that can be quite uncomfortable for some people. We were aware of trying to do something slightly more understated when compared to our previous music videos. We wanted to let the music take you into the video rather than letting the video do all the work for us.”

Dancing Years will headline Leeds’ Brudenell Social Club on Wednesday February 10, followed by London’s Moth Club on February 15.

Their Learn To Kiss EP, is out on February 12 via Kolbalt/Hide & Seek Records. For more on the band visit http://www.dancingyears.com/
