The Regrettes have unveiled their intoxicating cover of Robyn‘s hit song “Dancing On My Own.” While the group has not directly stated that the cover was recorded and filmed for Pride Month, Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” has become a queer anthem since its release in 2010.
At the forefront of The Regrettes‘ rendition is lead singer Lydia Night, whose vocals bring a raw and gritty edge to the performance. Her powerful delivery resonates with an authenticity that perfectly captures the longing and vulnerability expressed in the lyrics of “Dancing On My Own.” Night’s voice effortlessly conveys the emotions behind the song, immersing listeners in a rollercoaster of feelings, from heartache to determination.
Throughout the cover, The Regrettes‘ instrumental arrangement pays homage to the original while incorporating their own musical identity. The band’s driving guitars and energetic drum beats infuse the track with palpable energy, elevating the emotional impact and giving it a punk-rock edge. The Regrettes manage to strike a delicate balance, staying true to the essence of the song while imprinting their own unique sound onto it.
What sets this cover apart is the accompanying music video, which features a collage of fan-submitted videos synchronized with the song. From the first few frames, it becomes clear that this isn’t just any ordinary music video—it’s a heartfelt tribute to the band’s dedicated fanbase. Through the video, The Regrettes create a sense of community and inclusivity.
