May 6, 2020 Singer Dagny releases new song and music video ‘Somebody’

Singer Dagny releases new song and music video ‘Somebody’

Norwegian cult pop icon Dagny has released the new single ‘Somebody’ along with a music video – the second track to be lifted from her upcoming debut album. Today Dagny is also announcing that her long-awaited debut will be split into two parts, with the first 6 tracks Side A available for streaming on May 22nd, and the full album to arrive in September later this year.

New single ‘Somebody’ sparks into life with a dance-floor ready rhythm section, before bubbling synths, open up to provide a lush backdrop to Dagny’s unmistakable vocals. 

The song was written with a goal of conveying the ultimate “in-love” experience, Dagny went on to say: “It’s the all-consuming and exciting feeling when everything is still new. I’ve been lucky to experience it. I find that when I’m in love I feel everything ten times more than usual. With ‘Somebody’ for me, it’s not just the lyrics but the whole vibe of the song that represents that: when I listen to it I get a lot of positive energy and I just wanna throw myself into something new and exciting.”

Both new single ‘Somebody’ and the previously released ‘Come Over’ truly epitomises Dagny’s singular sound, style, and spirit. “Now – more than ever – I am able to be personal in my music. I want to tell stories that mean something to me, but also stories that others can relate to,” Dagny said.

Once again, Dagny worked with directing duo TUSK on the video for ‘Somebody’. Comprising Kerry Furrh & Olivia Mitchell, the pair have recently worked on Camilla Cabello’s single release campaign and live show visuals, as well as creating work for artists including Halsey, Olly Murs, Olivia O’Brien, Nicki Minaj and many others.

April 24, 2020 Interview with London-based songwriter and music producer  Zizzo World

Interview with London-based songwriter and music producer Zizzo World

London-based songwriter and music producer Zizzo World began hitting the ground running in the music world in 2004. What started off as a way to entertain himself and kill some time, quickly grew into something much more serious and passionate. 

After a move to New York in 2008 and developing an insatiable craft in music production, Zizzo World began to manifest into a versatile and multifaceted producer & artist combo with his own signature sound and stylization

What are some of your earliest memories of music?

My earliest was when I was 5 or 6 years old when I was in nursery group in my origin country – Moldova, when I have participated first time in a regional festival of traditional music, and that was my first experience on the stage. I can distinctly remember the vibration — of being surrounded by love, hearts that were open, and the simple experience of Joy.

As any young aspiring artist and musician, I took later learning up the accordion, different keyboards and after guitar. My initial momentum, supported by my parents and ego’s desire to see how good I could become, took me into pursuing music by becoming a music producer and self-established artist.

Take us through your songwriting process. Are there any particular steps you take when putting music together?

Normally, I start by developing my song’s main melody or central chorus, I consider to be the best place to begin writing my next track. Once I’ve got my hook or key chord progression, I can build the rest of your song around it. Of course, all above has to come from a strong feeling on behind about what I have to write.

Studio work and music creation or performing and interacting with a live audience, which do you prefer?

I prefer both, but at this moment my focus is mostly on studio time, that is the best place where I feel in my own world – Zizzo World. Interaction with my audience has to be with some additional supports, as promo team, budgets which makes this more difficult to achieve it for now, but if my music will be well digested well by the audience, I think that moment of big engagement is not so far.

What is the most memorable response you have had to your music?

“I saw you in the UK iTunes top charts”

If you could put together a radio show, what kind of music would you play?

Of course my main genre, Pop, but also could be Dance or something electronic.

Name five artists and their albums who would appear on your radio show

Ed Sheran, Kygo, Dua Lipa, Robbie Williams, Carla’s Dreams

What would you like to achieve with your music? What does success look like to you?

My thinking about success in music might look completely different to other, but writing better and better music, receiving great feedbacks from potential fans, getting on multiple stages around the world and radio, this will make me feel a genuine performer!

One last thought to leave your fans with?

Just listen to great music! Find the story behind any artists, like me, understand their message and support! In my case, follow my music because this makes me confident and better!

April 3, 2020 Interview with singer/songwriter MACKandgold

Interview with singer/songwriter MACKandgold

Singer MACKandgold has proven the dedication she has to her career as she navigates every curveball life throws her way, turning those ups and downs into stories and songs we can all relate to. 

MACKandgold has always been careful with her music. She finds ways to explore her sound with different producers at her side all while keeping the vibes consistent. As her work continues to trickle out into the world, she walks us along an honest path of self-discovery and experimentation.

What are some of your earliest memories of music?

My mom singing me lullabies. My wind upbears that would play slower and slower and slower till I fell asleep. The Wizard of Oz.

Take us through your songwriting process. Are there any particular steps you take when putting music together?

The steps that seem to work over and over is finding the emotion first. Then the subject follows.  What’s the story. From there its just beautiful chaos and hopefully freedom to explore. I don’t do so well in sessions with time limits.

Studio work and music creation or performing and interacting with a live audience, which do you prefer?

The studio work is fun and special in its own way, like creating a recipe. But performing and interacting with an audience is the whole cake.

What is the most memorable response you have had to your music?

Someone told me that watching me made them feel freer to be themselves, and love themselves…like I inspired that in them. That’s the coolest. I want to do that. And often Iv’e heard “you’re my spirit animal”, an animal I’m proud to be.

If you could put together a radio show, what kind of music would you play?

Everything that’s ever made an impact on me. The songs and artists that I feel like are part of my soul and can cover all my moods.

Name five artists and their albums who would appear on your radio show

Chet Baker – Chet Baker sings, David Bowie – The rise and fall of ziggy stardust and the spiders from mars, daft punk – Discovery, Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the moon (+ have a cigar cuz it’s my favourite), LCD Soundsystem – this is happening (+someone great)

What would you like to achieve with your music? What does success look like to you?

Connecting people. Success looks like being able to do this as much as possible. I know it can change the world. That woman who I can inspire to self-love, she’s gonna spread that around. It’s really infectious.

One last thought to leave your fans with?

Wash your hands

March 25, 2020 Lux Lyall shares wicked new Song and music video ‘Baby Is A Vamp’

Lux Lyall shares wicked new Song and music video ‘Baby Is A Vamp’

Noir-pop diva Lux Lyall has shared her new single ‘Baby Is A Vamp’ along with the wickedly seductive accompanying video. It’s the lead track from her upcoming debut album “VAMP”, which is set for release April 24th via Gamblers All.

Effortlessly blending her glamorous Hollywood noir style with indulgent cinematic visuals, Lux opens the door, inviting you deeper into her decadent world. The elegant and alluring track sees her flaunt her rebellious side and is addressed to men whose girlfriends are too good for them.

‘Baby Is a Vamp’ came from a combination of my own reflections on past relationships and hearing my friends talk about theirs. It’s ultimately a reality check to all those guys who are losers punching above their weight”, Lux explains.

“With the video, we wanted to do something that didn’t take itself too seriously and use the image of the traditional vampire in our own whimsical way. The director wanted the leading vampire and me to portray a deranged Peter & Wendy with some murderous lost children to assist us.”
