Dance On Ur Own 2 Feet

JD Kelleher - Dance On Ur Own 2 Feet

Release 2024/03/15
Following their highly acclaimed version of Over the Rainbow last Summer and two smashing singles that gave them their personal best year in music to date, London-based queer, non-binary, Irish actor & singer/songwriter JD Kelleher has today released a smashing new pop single & video, Dance On Ur Own 2 Feet.

JD has reunited with Catalan musicians, Jimmy Pinol, David Ibarz & Marti Rieira (along with new band member Alex Badia on keys & synths) who together topped the Irish rock chart during the Marriage Equality referendum in May 2015 with their debut single & video version of Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart, the lead single from JD's debut EP, The Ugly Tree.

"Me and the lads are shifting gears here" says Kelleher. "It's time to harness the power of Pop and make people smile with Dance On Ur Own 2 Feet. This is a song about blazing your own trail, standing up for and believing in who you space to the things you are passionate about and taking what time we have left to celebrate the wonders of living and the unique talents that everybody has. I wanted to write something that would be uplifting and encouraging in these tragically dark days. Obviously there is a queer theme in all of my songs buy that is just part of the story here. Be true to who you are and be true to your passions and your loves and, as they say 'F**k the begrudgers!'"

The video for Kelleher's new single is a dawn strut across London's Millennium Bridge and is as optimistic and life-affirming as the song itself.
Kelleher never fails to deliver in performance and Dance On Ur Own 2 Feet is no exception, taking JD's queer pop joy to innovative new heights.
