Dani Le Rose – Vertigo (2018)

Growing my own musical tastes from my standard rock and roll has been a bit of a personal journey into my own personal experiences in life.  Having listened to Dani Le Rose’s ‘Vertigo’ several times now on SoundCloud, each time I do, I find something more to like about the song.  First, it was her voice; a soft yet powerful voice that has a unique quality to it.  Then it was the lyrics; having taken a course in songwriting and lyrics, I can definitely appreciate the lyrics of her single and the emotions being presented.  Finally, the beat; with rock and roll being my preferred taste, a pop song that had a really groovy beat was a huge delight.

As a fellow Canadian musician, it was even more surprising to learn that this really cool sounding song was from Vancouver, Canada – right in my own backyard!  Growing up, Dani’s influences included Boyz II Men, Janet Jackson, Lauren Hill, and Fiona Apple.  These influences have certainly given Dani her own unique style in creating her music.

When I listen to the lyrics of ‘Vertigo’, I love how she’s able to capture the essence of falling in love while simultaneously differentiating herself from other pop genre songs.  From the butterflies of anticipation to the absolute and proverbial cloud nine high one experiences with a deep, new love; the amazing and futuristic sounding beat helps move the song in such a groovy way, a person can’t help but groove along with it.

From Dani herself about her song ‘Vertigo’, “Love; the cure for loneliness desire and attachment.  You see it in movies, romance novels, plays…lovers find each other and then are left to expect the story ends happily ever after.  The problem is; no one sees the aftermath… infidelity, boredom, daily monotony, loss of excitement… these are all unanticipated painful outcomes that are a heavy possibility.  These odds aren’t looking so great as the divorce rate hits around 50% in North America.  BUT still, with the statistics and the odds against us, we still have this strong passionate longing desire when we meet someone.  They fulfil us emotionally, intellectually, and physically.  We feel like we have a purpose, a reason to live, a fullness which leaves us like addicts trying to get our next fix.  In a song like Vertigo, I really wanted to explain this feeling of ‘FALLING’ in love… or ‘FALLING’ from love.  It’s always a gamble but the high is profound and powerful.”
