After spending years in the studio crafting evocative songs and being the voice and front-woman for the electro-alt pop project, Mickey Loves Mallory, Vancouver based urban-pop songstress DANI is finally releasing her solo sound and it is pure sonic goodness. Premiering exclusively on GroundSounds is the fresh new video for “Love U More,” a visual story comprised of striking metaphors and symbols.
DANI had this to say about latest track and video:
There is a deep dark place inside me which comes out when writing a song. The lyrics are reminiscent of a time I felt love for someone even though they were unable to reciprocate. It was such a distinct feeling, as it alluded to unconditional love that love can’t be, unless the one you love; is giving it back. I feel this happens a lot in this day and age. People unable to commit to relationships but are left starving for human connection. This type of love is dangerous and full of allusions.
I used to be in a relationship with a drug addict. I felt the direct push and pull of love. One day he loved me, the next he was out the door looking for his fix. I stayed in the relationship because I wanted to ‘save him’ and help him get better. I didn’t realize giving him all my energy and time was only sucking me dry of my own wants and dreams. I spent many years allowing this person to hold me back from my success and financially being able to launch my career. Whenever I write songs, I revert back to this time as it was such a substantial and revolutionary time in my life. I felt the trivial ups and downs as they crashed through my soul. Although there were heartaches, I learnt how to love myself. Music was my only medicine and with that I feel that was my way of getting through that hell hole i’d put myself in. Any song I write for this project will be with this theme as it’s the most harsh part of my life. I believe people can relate to this and want to hear about it. Love is cliche for a reason.
