With a dash of ’80s pop energy, playful rock and straightforward lyrics, Loftland’s album I Don’t Want To Dance offers uplifting, upbeat dance rock. The title track “I Don’t Want To Dance” has a hint of Eddy Grant’s “Electric Avenue,” yet maintains the band’s unique a fresh feel. You cannot help but feel your mood shift after a listen to this album. But don’t let the happy rock fool you; Loftland offers more than pop fun. Their songs speak truth and leave you encouraged (“Hold On, Small One”). Anyone with an ’80s pop appetite or fan of pop-energetic music will dig this band.

Contributing writer Andrew Voigt talks to vocalist Austin Visser about the band's new album, the reality of their music, and how they've been able to embrace their creative freedom.Full Feature More from The Undertaking
