"Her lyrics are beautiful and always tell a story.” - Metro UK
Celestial singer-songwriter Dani Sylvia prepares to release her majestic new single Lithium on 27th September 2019 via Little Misery Records.
The single is a brooding slice of atmospheric electronica from the offset. Combining shimmering melodies with smooth, sultry vocals, Lithium feels instantly reminiscent of the likes of BANKS or VÉRITÉ’s ability to create undeniably entrancing soundscapes. Dani’s lyrics are both powerful and poignant, reflecting the compelling message behind the song seamlessly. Talking about the single, Dani elaborates, “Lithium is about many things; self-sabotage, self-destruction, fear… but ultimately, hope and knowing that feelings are never permanent. For me, it is about the secrets we keep, bad coping-strategies and the lies we tell to those around us so that they don’t worry about us, preferring to learn how to heal yourself rather than leaning on others. It’s about the place we go to in our minds to face ourselves head-on and fully feel the pain/shame/loneliness/fear. It’s only by doing this alone that we can be ‘found’.”
Dani grew up in Crawley where she was heavily influenced by the likes of Queen, Whitney Houston and most of all, Michael Jackson. Now residing between London and Sussex, Dani has gone from strength to strength. She was awarded Best Songwriter at the Unsigned Music Awards in 2016 and has already supported the likes of Craig David and The Feeling. She has also worked with artists such as Paloma Faith, Pixie Lott, Sigma and Labrinth with Urban Voices Collective to name a few. Her previous project Catharsix was featured on a number of Spotify’s editorial playlists including New Music Friday, The Pop List and Brand New Chill. With Lithium, Dani hopes to captivate listeners further with her impassioned blend of sparkling electro-pop.
