Dancæstral (pronunced daːnsɛs.tɹəl) is the combination of the words ‘Dance’ and ‘Ancestral’, meaning purely instinctive dancing, movements our body makes without an intention,
under the influence of an involving music. Like you’re excited or enraptured while playing or enjoying a live concert.
The band was born to express this primordial, instinctive and basic human reaction. It starts when you let yourself go to the music, just out of the box, free from conventions and materialism we’re usually absorbed,
confined and inhibited. Sound envelopes the body which moves in a weird, uncoordinated way. Barriers break down, other people expectations and shame are gone.
In that moment we’re just “the all singing, all dancing crap of the world” as Tyler Durden from ‘Fight Club’ would say.
When this situation occurs, the result is a contamination between atmosphere, adrenaline, anger and inspiration, defined as ‘Dancæstral’.
‘Rimargina’, a seven-track Demo, is their first Ep.
The song’s subjects deal with several aspects of life and relate to the way people respond to them: the difficulty of putting the past behind you, which causes nostalgia, regret and pain;
disdain for and refusal of the homogenisation of society; the everlasting existential dilemma of the afterlife; introspection and remorse for past actions caused by instinct and disposition.
