Joe Traxler – Don’t Dance [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Organic, mellow, modern

Tell us a few things about your new song “Dont Dance”. What is the story behind it?

‘Don’t Dance’ is the first song of my upcoming debut LP ‘Lifelines’ which is set to be released in spring 2022. The song details an evening out
wracked with social anxieties and insecurities, yet paradoxically delivered in a feel good, indie
funk wrapper.

Which is your most personal and honest lyric?

In my song ‘Asymmetrical Life’ I was processing the battle with a sudden bout of facial paralysis and its chronic residual effects.

Favourite album of the past year?

Sex & Food by Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

What is the biggest challenge you have faced as an artist so far?

Staying inspired and motivated to create while taking care of the business side of things at the same time.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Try not to stress too much about the numbers and recognition and dedicate your whole energy to creating unique art.

What is the best concert you have ever been to?

Matt Corby o2 Kentish Town, London.

Thank you!
