Celestial singer-songwriter Dani Sylvia has released her majestic new single Lithium, out now 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’.”
