Be Quiet. Shout Loud! – (You’re Not) Sitting In Tonight

Anyone who has seen BQ.SL! live will know all about their catchy-as-hell indie disco romps, and (You’re Not) Sitting In Tonight is perhaps their most infectious yet. Blending soaring synths with all the best bits of late-eighties pop, it also retains its indie credentials and is a floor filler from the off.

Ste Allen explains more about the track: “It’s a personal favourite, for a number of reasons. It signalled a change in direction for the band and we feel that it marks the moment we got our heads around writing a pop song, the video for the song is probably one that encapsulates the band the most and it’s a favourite at live shows too. The first time I heard an audience sing the words back at us was a genuine life highlight.” It’s just what glitter Doc Martens were made for.
