BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986
Trance Dance were a Swedish pop group who had a number of hits in the late 1980s. The group were somewhat rock-influenced, with their music being driven by guitars and other instruments not fully characteristic of a late 1980s pop group. Despite their name, their music did not resemble trance at all.
Trance Dance were formed in Sweden in 1985 as a seven-piece group consisting of Ben Marlene (vocals), Pelle Hökengren (guitar), P.J. Widestrand (keyboards), John Stark (bass), Sören Johanssen (drums) and the sisters Susanne and Yvonne Holmström (additional vocals). Ben Marlene had previously been in the Finnish group French Kiss, who existed between 1982 and 1984 and made two albums. Marlene and the Holmström sisters are swedish speaking finns.
The group’s first album, A-Ho-Ho, was released in Sweden in late 1986 and in USA in February 1987, making number 19 on the Swedish album chart. The album spawned the single “Do The Dance” despite receiving a fair amount of airplay in clubs, they failed to chart in their native Sweden. The song did much better in the USA peaking at #8 on the Billboard Dance Chart in 1987.
