The third track emerges from Insecure Men's forthcoming debut LP. Watch 'I Don't Wanna Dance' below

Insecure Men, the new project by Saul Adamczewski (Fat White Family) and Ben Romans-Hopcraft (Childhood), have revealed the third track from their forthcoming debut LP.

'I Don't Wanna Dance (With My Baby)', a cut of upbeat, lopsided exotica centred on a wonky groove, comes accompanied with a video by London-based inependent production company Sharp Payne, which you can watch above.

Of the video, set in Blackpool, Sharp Payne's Jak Payne said: "Me and Saul had spoken about making videos that felt dated and kitsch, and kind of invoked this old British seaside culture. We found a kid's ballroom dancing competition up in Blackpool, and it worked with the style and lyrics of the song.

"I really liked the pageantry of the whole event, these 12 year olds dolled up in make-up and these very 70s, bright dresses. There's something bizarre and unsettling about it, it feels cartoonish in how exaggerated everyone’s out-fits and expressions are, which, I think, goes with the Insecure Men sound."

Insecure Men's self-titled debut album will be released on February 23 on Fat Possum. You can pre-order it here.
