GIRL RAY – ” Murder On The Dancefloor “

Posted: December 2, 2021 in MUSIC

Girl Ray, the London three-piece comprising Poppy Hankin, Iris McConnell and Sophie Moss, share a rework of Sophie Ellis Bextor’s classic “Murder On The Dancefloor” as their festive offering this year with all proceeds going to the Hackney Night Shelter (www.hwns.org.uk)

The band, who have weaved their signature sound into the track – a highlight during their recent festival appearances – said the following:

“Murder On The Dancefloor” has always had a special place in our hearts – it was forever etched into our memory when a few years back at a post-show karaoke session in Bristol, I over-excitedly shoved the microphone to Iris’ lips when it was finally our turn to sing, chipping her front tooth in half for the remainder of the tour. Since then it has of course remained our karaoke song, and a favourite at our DJ sets. When we were looking for a song to cover for this year’s festival seasons, it seemed a natural fit. It became one of our favourite parts of our live set, and we thought it would be only right to record it in honour of Sophie Ellis Bextor’s truly perfect pop song.”

Song produced and mixed by Mike O’Malley
Performed by Girl Ray released December 2nd, 2021
