DANI Le Rose just released her new single/video “I’ve Told Lies”. Following - “Cruel” and “Love U More”, the video is cinematic and revolves around an almost thriller like plot. Her character stays quite numb and emotionless in all of the videos. She has developed this trait as a theme for the whole project. Actor ‘Len Harvey’ plays the role of an obsessive lover who’s so wrapped up in the relationship that he doesn’t realize he’s causing harm. The video was Shot at the beautiful yet haunted ‘Arundel Mansion’ located in New Westminster.
Since moving to Vancouver, DANI Le Rose has been spending as much time as possible developing her sound. She has had the pleasure of working alongside artists such as Elle King and Zella Day.
Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
