‘Real Dancing’ is a bustling night market of spicy grooves, smokey vocals, strange lyrics and venomous guitar tones.

Recorded in Auckland at Roundhead / The Lab Studios and mixed by the Uk’s Dave Eringa (The Who, Manic Street Preachers) this is a Racing in their purest form.

Born of early hour cocktail bars in rural New Zealand, or black ice drives through the Desert road 'Real Dancing' captures the wild and vivid journeys that the band live while touring. This album is filled with an epicurean sensibility, Patron Anejo soaked discoesque grooves, lurid crooning and a love of the road.
