Track of the Day: Le Boom and Æ MAK “Dancing Bug” (2019)

Irish electro-pop duo Le Boom have teamed up with fellow Dubliner Æ MAK, to release “Dancing Bug”, a bright and playful track that’ll put a smile on your face and spring in your step.

To accompany the single, the band have dropped the delightful and impeccably choreographed music video you can find below. With videography from Tim Shearwood and Peter Fleming, the clip sees Le Boom (Christy Leech and Aimie Mallon) and Æ MAK (Aoife McCann) gliding through the streets of Stoneybatter, Dublin City. 

According to McCann, “Dancing Bug”, is all about “falling into your bedroom after a bad day and dancing like fire to your favourite song; to escape the stuff you just had to deal with.” I think we can all probably relate to that, right? 

2018 proved to be a pretty busy year for Le Boom, with the pair performing at some of Europe’s largest festivals, including Primavera, Longitude and Electric Picnic. 2019 already looks set to be a busy year, with the band having released a new EP, All Of My Highs, earlier this month. They’ve also got a series of UK and Ireland shows scheduled over the next couple of months, and have just announced their largest headline show to date; the duo will be playing Olympia in Dublin in October. 

“Dancing Bug” is available now. Le Boom’s new EP All Of My Highs was released May 3rd.
