"NOWNESS"

Vancouver-based director Angus Borsos captures the many faces of New York indie-pop duo Dizzyride, aka Canadian songstress Zoë Kiefl and Brooklyn-based recording artist Nicola Donà, for their latest release Young You. Here, Kiefl talks about the song and video:

"This song is an ode to love and to John Lennon. It is about finding solace in the caring heart of another and reaching a higher meaning in this crazy life.

“The song is about finding solace in the caring heart of another”
“It was written and recorded at home and finalized within half a day. It poured out of Nico all at once. Nico doesn’t cry ever, neither for joy nor sorrow. This song is Nico’s tears." -


"INTERVIEW"

A mother, wrapped in a lavender towel, her hair wet after a shower; a child, fussing about in her arms; a poster of Prince in all of his nearly naked glory—these are the subjects steadily framed in the single shot music video for Dizzyride's "Candy Lullaby," which premieres below. Striking and emotive in its simplicity, it's an intimate portrait that features the duo's vocalist Zoë Kiefl with her daughter Fela, and, by extension, implies Nicola Donà, Kiefl's partner, Fela's father, and the band's other half. -


"CLRVYNT"

It all started with a spur-of-the-moment road trip. One day in summer 2014, singer-songwriter Zoë Kiefl hopped in her car and took a trip to Philadelphia. During a stop-off in New York City on her way back home to Montreal, she found herself crashing with Nicola Donà, a Venetian-born musician known for his work as the one-man band Horrible Present. Bonding gave way to collaboration, and before long, the two were inseparable, constantly recording ideas and snippets over the span of Donà’s tour that summer. Such are the origins of Dizzyride’s lush, genre-spanning sound, somewhere between Afrobeat’s languid swing and the Cocteau Twins’ swooning baroque pop.

Two EPs and a pair of European tours later, Kiefl and Donà are gearing up to release Dizzyride’s self-titled LP, arriving January 20. The 10-track effort features a number of noteworthy guests, including Kyle Forester (on saxophone) and the ever-rising Mary Lattimore, whose glistening harp performance acts as an apex for the whimsical first single “Soundtrack,” premiering today exclusively via CLRVYNT. Listen below, and scroll down for the album artwork and track list. And pick it up on We Were Never Being Boing. -

Bio

NYC's Dizzyride transforms minimalism, psychedelia, afro-beat, disco and soul music. Zoë from Montreal and Nicola from Venice bring together their shared musical interests that connect from across the Atlantic and blend internationally inspired influences to fuse together newfound fascinations. Working together, the pair have created a semi-sweet nostalgic sound. It's held together with battered drum-machine patterns, sultry sax runs, and pointed bass lines that sound as though they've been lifted from a cache of rattly old cassettes.
