A DUNFERMLINE band are channelling fight-or-flight as they prepare to release a new single.

The Passing Sages compare a leap of faith into a new romantic relationship with an emergency situation in their new track, Dangerous.

The song is a flirtatious and enticing record exploring the thrill of new-found love, a feeling similar to an incident with a potential "direct threat to life".

The new-age feel of the song blends floaty chords and commercial electronica with a driving disco bassline and a punchy rap.

In the chorus, the singer recalls a need to "take it slow" as they take a chance to fall in love, calling it a "leap of faith" as they "risk it all".

Earlier this year the band released Say What You Want, using a combination of modern pop and retro techniques to explore the idea of breaking down boundaries despite the disapproving views of others.

The Passing Sages take inspiration from artists such as ABBA and Lady Gaga and are notable for their disco, funk and soul sound.

Their previous releases have received critical acclaim, with Say What You Want reaching 20,000 streams on Spotify.

They have had a busy year of live gigs including playing the main stage at Meadows Festival in Edinburgh, a four-date tour in the north of England, Foodies Festival in dates in Glasgow and Edinburgh alongside Scouting for Girls and Callum Beattie, and playing at the Peartree pub as part of the Edinburgh Fringe.

Dangerous will be released on Friday, September 1.
