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.
