Welcome to BuzzMusic, Harry Bodley-Scott. Hearty cheers to your latest single, "Bad Dancing," which has a classic tone and an inviting yet raw message. Can you tell us more about the inspiration behind the 'bad dancing' concept and how it serves as a metaphor in your song?

For me, life is about connecting. But connecting with each other is hard. Harder than it should be. I think we are afraid of each other, and so many of us are lost, lonely, and scared to be our authentic selves because it makes us vulnerable. Whatever I write, I always find myself saying this in some way. Bad Dancing is no different. If you risk being authentic and honest, you can connect with others. If you can connect with other people, you can find the only real, concrete meaning in this life – at least as far as I can tell! Bad Dancing is just an exercise in authenticity! But it also celebrates what I believe is important in life. Not just connecting but also embracing the chaotic miracle of human existence. We are alive, awake, a momentary flash in an infinity of sleep and darkness. I am often so preoccupied with the tonnage of the tragedy of living that I often write songs to remind myself to look up and see the magic of life. I need that. The lyrics in 'Bad Dancing' vividly depict a carefree lifestyle. Can you share an anecdote or a specific event that inspired these lines? I've had the same group of friends for nearly 15 years now. And we had a tradition of playing pool in the barn next to the house I grew up in, putting on loud music, and just dancing with 100% enthusiasm and 0% skill. I was always so happy doing that with them; those memories mean a lot to me. Whatever was going on in our lives, it didn't matter because, for that night, we were just happy. 'Bad Dancing' carries a strong message of self-acceptance and liberation from societal judgment. Have there been moments when you personally felt the urge to 'dance badly,' and if so, how has this influenced your work? I feel the urge every day of my life! We're not here for very long. And I find it hard to believe that on the day it ends, any of us will assess the value of our lives in material terms. It will be about all those beautiful moments you shared with others when you weren't pretending or performing but truly being your authentic self when you connected. I will release a lot of music this year, and if you look out for it, you will always hear some reference to this idea, among other things! I always find myself exploring it in my songwriting. 'Bad Dancing' will certainly carve its own niche in the music scene. As you look towards the future, how do you think the success and reception of this song will shape your upcoming artistic endeavors? Well, Bad Dancing is the first single of many coming this year. It was my return to releasing music, as I hadn't done so for a while. The song going down well is so encouraging, and so I'm excited to see what the world thinks of all the other songs I'm getting ready to release!
