Last month, The Children’s Hour (Josephine Foster, Andy Bar, David Pajo) were pleased to announce Going Home, their unlikely and long journeyed sophomore album, set to arrive February 23 via Drag City imprint Sea Note. In conjunction with the announcement, the band shared the album’s lead single, “Bright Lights,” and detailed three album release celebrations, happening next month in Louisville, Chicago and Nashville. Today, the band is sharing the album’s second single, the jubilant “Dance With Me.”

Discussing the single, David Pajo offers, “‘Dance With Me’ might well be my favorite song on Going Home. It documents a sweet moment I think we all can relate with.” Bar called the tune “A dance song for reluctant wallflowers.”

Going Home shows the evolution of The Children’s Hour, infusing elements of psychedelia and The Velvets, while the focus remains on Josephine’s soulful voice, and vivid lyricism. The intricate guitar arrangements of Andy Bar, ornamented by Josephine’s melodic lead guitar lines, are both exalted by David’s ecstatic percussion and bass lines.
