ONEULZINE: SINGER SIV DISA DISCUSSES NEW SINGLE "FEAR"
NYC-based singer, songwriter, and pianist Siv Disa’s musical style is unmistakable; minor chords and dissonant sounds give her songs a haunting feel, while her warm, soft voice invites the listener into even the darkest of stories. Her latest single, “Fear,” released by Irish singer-songwriter Maija Sofia’s record label Trapped Animal Records, is an embodiment of this distinct sound she’s mastered.
Disa’s delicate vocals, conversational lyrical style, and synths in the song are reminiscent of indie pop bands like The Blow, while the instrumentals and subject matter conjure up gloomier acts like Orion Rigel Dommisse. The video follows the latter thread, showing Disa wandering through an abandoned road, a dark wooden house, and a winter forest as she sings, “I’m a little bit in love with everyone I’ve ever touched/Come a little bit undone then disconnect before it comes to much.”
"Propelled by eerie, atmospheric hooks, ‘moths’ showcases Disa’s soaring raw vocals alongside a spellbinding majesty. As profound lyrics flow from an ethereal plane, it’s an utterly captivating offering that shimmers with a subtle mystical power. Of the meaning behind the track, Siv Disa explains:
“You see these impossibly large moths trapped in big street lamps, flying inside them and hitting the glass again and again… They must have gotten in when they were small enough to fit, and then grown too large to escape. The amount of time they spend on the wrong side of the glass. It seems so unnecessary from the outside. A whole life spent looking out at the world" " - Get In Her Ears
