Steps “Scared of the Dark”
After a five year hiatus, British dance pop group Steps is finally back with a brand new album cycle. And to kick it all off, the five piece presents the lead off single “Scared of the Dark“. The track, premiered on BBC Radio 2 this past Thursday, is easily one of their strongest in years.
Refusing to conform to the sound of today, ‘Scared’ stands out in today’s pop landscape as something fresh and exciting. But in reality, Steps has done little to alter its style. A ballad like false intro and unexpected key change elevate this from just a dance floor filler to a stand out moment in the group’s two decade old career.
