A 4-track Stolen Dance EP (including the single "Down by the River") was released by Lichtdicht Records and Republic Records on 9 May 2014.

History[edit]

Single and music video[edit]

After playing two live shows,[2] over two weeks in 2013, the band recorded their debut album in a home-made studio in Rehbein's childhood home.[2] Before finishing and releasing the record, the group released several singles on SoundCloud and on YouTube. In an interview with Edmonton's Sonic 102.9, the band said that it took them three years to write the song "Stolen Dance". An early version of the song, with different production, was uploaded to YouTube on 7 September 2012.[3] The final version of the song was first uploaded to YouTube 4 April 2013 and quickly became a viral hit, racking up millions of views.[2] Wrote SPIN about the video, "the clip for "Stolen Dance" nails the visual for its artist in a way that feels definitive and not overly self-conscious. It's still without being static, evocative while not provocative, silly but never stupid."[4] The video made the band the "most blogged about act" for that month on HypeM.[2] As of August 2017 the video also holds over 330 million views on YouTube.[5]

The song was first released on their own label on 5 April 2013 as a single and reached number one in Austria, France, Belgium (Wallonia), Switzerland, Poland, Czech Republic and Hungary.

2014 EPs[edit]

With the success in Europe in 2013 and additional touring, the single was made available in a radio edit version and on two different versions of EP under various labels in 2014 in Luxembourg (where it also went to number one), Australia, U.S., Canada, New Zealand, and Ireland.[1]

A 4-track Stolen Dance EP (including the single "Down by the River") was released by Lichtdicht Records and Republic Records on 9 May 2014.[1]

The song charted in countries where it had not yet been released, such as the UK, which did not have a scheduled release date,[6] although it was included on BBC1's "B List" the week of 23 June 2014. In the U.S., iTunes gave the song a release date of 17 June 2014, offering the "Stolen Dance" single (with the original mix) for free.[7]

Critical reception[edit]

Spin described the leading single "Stolen Dance" as a "serenely rollicking crossover jam", clarifying that the song "is no red herring — the great majority of Sadnecessary follows in its pattern of low-octane beats and gently lapping guitar strumming, making for a lovely and understated album."[4]
