Worcester, MA’s Backwards Dancer is now premiering a haunting new music video for “I Saw Your Spirit.” The powerful song comes from Backwards Dancer’s self-titled, debut full-length that will be released on March 3 via Rory Records, an Equal Vision Records imprint founded by Say Anything’s Max Bemis. “I Saw Your Spirit” follows the release of “Breathe Life Into Beauty”, the first song released from the band’s forthcoming debut, which was recently named the Rockest Record / track of the week on BBC Radio One’s Rock Show with Daniel P, Carter. Both videos were filmed and produced by Ugly Duck Studios.

Backwards Dancer is currently on a full US tour supporting Eisley and Civilian. All upcoming tour dates can be found below.

“I wrote the lyrics to this song at a point where I was dealing with this sense of detachment, as well as keeping up with nurturing healthy relationships,” reveals vocalist/guitarist Zack Shaw. “It’s very much from the point of view of being on the outside looking in, trying to make sense of the absence of connection.”
