Cajun Dance Party preview new material at Leeds Festival

London five-piece play intense show on NME/Radio 1 Stage

Cajun Dance Party previewed a brand new song during their set on Leeds Festival‘s NME/Radio 1 Stage today (August 22).

The London five-piece, three of whom were dressed in black leather jackets, performed tracks from their debut album ‘The Colourful Life’, as well as new song ‘Five Days’, during their forty-minute set.

The jaunty new song got a good reception in the busy tent, and is likely to be included on the band’s second album, expected to be released later this year.


The biggest cheers during the set, however, were reserved for the singles from ‘The Colourful Life’, including the title track itself and ‘Amylase’.

Debut single and fan favourite ‘The Next Untouchable’ closed the set.

Cajun Dance Party played:

‘The Colourful Life’

‘Time Falls’

‘The Race’


‘Five Days’


‘The Hills, The View And The Lights’

‘The Next Untouchable’
