An experiment in lo-fi evolved into a personal discourse about deconstructivism in electronic music as we currently know it. Combining pop structures with unusual sounds taken from horror films,she creates a naive and fun sound using keyboards from her childhood with agressive dark and dancy beats.

Biography

It all started when Schaffner, the singer and one of the principal song writers of indie band Ibi Ego, set out to record a headful of fleeting melodies that often escaped her. Describing herself as, ‘very forgetful,’ Schaffner used a simple formula to remember potential songs by: a cheap Radio Shack microphone, toy keyboards, and her mother’s virus-ridden PC. She started recording in the DIY studio that doubled as her bedroom. But the disconnect between the song constructions that Schaffner imagined and the constraints of shoddy instrumentation produced unexpected results. She started exploring the possibilities within its limitations. With a mix of pop melodies and unusual sounds that seem to be taken out of a horror film, Dani Shivers crafts naive and fun songs with the help of toy keyboards rescued from her childhood and a batch of aggressive, obscure and danceable beats.

Lyrics

Up

Written By: Dani Shivers

Well, I felt like that 'cus I was trapped, when you told me to go up...
...and up, and up and up and up.
I wish I knew what to say.

Witch

Written By: Dani Shivers

All the crowd, I'm blown away.
Stan still, I know you're scared.
Tonight, we're snicking in....Prepare to kill that witch.
Hold the knife.

Graves

Written By: Dani Shivers

Opened graves and termites. Hear the sea crash your life. If you leave I'm not coming back. Fight the tears in your eyes.
Follow you where you are.
