We’ve been mesmerised by Olivia Dean’s work for some years now, and today’s release of ‘Danger’ continues to make us fall further in love with this immense UK talent.
Through its finessed blend of indie, pop and bossa nova, the track delivers a sound that is immediately spellbinding. Speaking on the lyrical inspiration behind the song, Dean explains:
“’Danger’ is a song for when you realise the risk you’re taking by falling in love with someone who is really good for you. It’s playful, tongue in cheek and an oxymoron. My main aim with this song was to allow myself to have fun and let go. I wanted to make a Lover’s Rock/Bossa Nova influenced song as they were genres I love and I grew up listening to and hadn’t explored before.”
Since her initial introduction to the world back in 2019, Dean has seen her music played on outlets like BBC Radio 1 and Beats 1, while critical praise has come from The Guardian, Dazed, FADER, NME, Clash and more.
