Vancouver riser Dalilah has shared potent new single ‘BRUISES’.
It’s still early days for this songwriter, but she’s already developed a riveting voice of her own. Icy pop infused with R&B tones, Dalilah approaches music from a ruthlessly autobiographical angle, resulting in something bracing, and original.
New single ‘BRUISES’ pivots between love and pain, discussing the duality between the two. Produced by Mcevoy – who also worked on Drake and 21 Savage’s collaborative LP – its sub zero charms puts Clash in mind of FKA twigs, Okay Jaya, or perhaps those early BANKS singles.
The vocal is crystalline and clear, while the production lets light shimmer through in an engaging fashion. Imbued with real poignancy, Dalilah says of her new single…
We don’t stop loving people because they hurt us. What happens after? Where does that love go? There’s so much emphasis on moving on but what if just for a moment we sit with how beautiful and ugly it feels to love somebody who hurt us. To mourn the hopes and dreams we had for what could have been. To mourn the person we were before it all. I love feeling sorry for myself! Try it!
The video takes the title literally, and presents Dalilah at her most vulnerable. Tune in now.
