Montreal artist Dana Gavanski recently featured in our Tracks of the Week, with her evocative single ‘One By One’ produced by Mike Lindsay (Tunng, LUMP) and released by London based label Full Time Hobby. Stately and wistful there’s a touch of class to Gavanski’s songwriting, the spindling hooks and her fantastic and dulcet vocal tones are framed with twinkling notes in the mid-distance. Elegantly balancing introspective verses, with melodies that dance on the head of a pin. She reels you into her captivating world of isolation and vulnerability. Today we unveil the beautiful accompanying video directed by Adrienne McLaren and the DOP was Thom Varey, watch it below.
‘One by One’ was written during Dana’s stay in Belgrade last Autumn. A meditation on being alone and the melancholy, vulnerability and rebuilding of self that comes with it – as much melancholic as a joyous affirmation of the act of letting go and experiencing a new sense of self with all its contradictions. “Dana is the real deal,” says Mike Lindsay. “Effortless songwriting with a voice that wraps you up in a vintage blanket that holds stories of the past, present and future!”
