Dani is planning to release her album Dreamland in the near future, so be on the lookout for more incoming for the amazing DANiiVORY.
Tell us about the song.
The song is called “Pink Lightning” and it is about being free to have electric feelings…letting yourself not be inhibited by any preconditioned notions or training…and going with the flow of the energy in the moment. You don’t see pink lightning often, but when you do it’s beautiful. That is analogous with the song’s message…having these “go with the flow” and “live in the moment” experiences don’t happen very frequently because life has us caught in chains of acceptance and monotony. However, you must seize the opportunities when they arise and the result will be beautiful liberation.
What was the filming and recording process?
The recording process took place in my home studio in Los Angeles with my co-producer David Asambadze. The song went through four different transformations with varying drum beats and grooves until we found the one you hear today! The filming process took place in one day in a studio in Nashville and on a rooftop downtown. I talked with the videographer quite extensively and then we decided on a direction. I styled my own wardrobe, but hired an amazing hair and makeup artist. It was a fun day, but a long day! We had a bit of trouble toward the end of the day because it was pouring outside and we weren’t quite prepared for it. I still think we got some great footage despite the challenges.
Is there a particular scene in the video that speaks to you?
Not particularly. We did mostly performance shots, so they all speak!
What do you hope fans/listeners take away with them when they listen to your music/watch the video?
I hope people will take away the message that I discussed in the first question….that they can be liberated from their own preconditioned notions and beliefs, and there is beauty in discomfort and the rare moments of “going against the grain.” Feel the lightning, feel the beauty!
