Dan’s DJ Pick of the Week is “Hate Dancin'” by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard! This delightful tune showcases King Gizzard’s more accessible side, largely free from extensive jam sessions and solos. By expanding away from the band’s trademark sound, “Hate Dancin'” proves the band’s potential as a massively popular cultural force outside of the progressive scene. However, the song’s impressive drum fills and experimental structure reveal a distinctly King Gizzard sound, resulting in a track loved by new and old fans alike.
Tying into the song’s danceable sound, the lyrics on “Hate Dancin'” tell the story of a reluctant narrator who slowly learns to love the art of dance. Enticed by a lively environment and a willing dance partner, the narrator comes out of their shell by the end of the song, embracing dance as one of the great joys of life. Listen to “Hate Dancin'” below, and let the music sweep you off your feet and teach you to love to dance!
