One of the leading lights of the Welsh alternative folk scene Danielle Lewis will release her debut album: Dreaming In Slow Motion, this Winter.
The release is preceded by one of its most tantalising offerings, the new single: Slow, Sad, and Real, which finds the singer-songwriter in conflicted, confessional mood. Hung up on life by day and visited by nightmares at the dead of night, Slow, Sad and Real was forged as she sought solace from the realities of life and the shadowy paranoia of her subconscious.
Danielle explains: “Slow, Sad and Real brings to light the array of emotions, thoughts and dreams I’ve felt that have sometimes conflicted within. It’s the desire to resist suppression and embrace every part of the human emotional state.”
“The lyrics play between conflicting states, eventually resolving to a place of strength and realness in embracing feeling deeply.”
Written by Danielle Lewis, the track was recorded at Sail Loft Studios, Cardiff. It was produced by the highly esteemed Secondson, engineered by Thomas V Westgård and Mixed & Mastered by Leon West; all of whom have contributed to Lewis’ forthcoming album debut.
Dreaming In Slow Motion will be self-released on 19th November 2021. From the haunting to the humbling, the songs of ‘Dreaming in Slow Motion’ collectively offer a collage of Lewis’ life as she navigated through the trials and tribulations of early adulthood.
Danielle says “Dreaming in Slow Motion captures a sequence of my thoughts and emotions floating through my mind, particularly from my early twenties. It holds moments of growth and awareness. The album was written across a crucial part of growth for me so it feels very retrospective but present at the same time. It’s helped me capture the radiance in those reflections.”
