Le Boom & Æ Mak Catch The Dancing Bug

Irish electronic-pop duo, Le Boom, comprising of Christy Leech and Aimie Mallon, and fellow Dubliner Æ Mak (Aoife McCann) have a video for their new collaborative single, ‘Dancing Bug’. The new music is shared alongside news of Le Boom’s largest headline to-date, a stop at the 1250-capacity Olympia, Dublin on October 11. The new date will follow a summer of festival touring and a brief May run, taking in stops at Thousand Island, London on May 3, and further dates at Live At Leeds and Hit The North.

Following the impeccably choreographed ‘Just Want To’, the compelling melodies of ‘Dancing Bug’ - which visually finds Leech, Mallon and McCann gliding through the streets of Stoneybatter, Dublin City - is the latest cut from the forthcoming EP, All Of My Highs, set for release May 3. “‘Dancing Bug’ is 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,” says McCann. “That energy taking you off into the other world that you're visualising as you dance.”

Speaking about the musical coming together, McCann continues: “I’d always loved Le Boom's live shows - myself and my mates dancing ourselves into the ground, high energy and love. Myself and Christy met at The Great Escape last year and got on like a house on fire. We were both like 'I like your music - I like your music, cool'. We wrote ‘Dancing Bug’ in a couple of hours late last year. Loved every minute.”
