Dizzy Share New Video for “Roman Candles”

By: Staff –

Dizzy are today sharing a new video for their latest single, “Roman Candles,” which you can watch below. Directed by Michael Pugacewicz, the video features vocalist Katie Munshaw’s unique choreography alongside some impressive pyrotechnics. The track will appear on the band’s forthcoming album, The Sun and Her Scorch, set for release on July 31 via Royal Mountain Records.

“‘Roman Candles’ is about how insecure I feel being someone who’s pursued music as a job. I’ve often felt jealous of friends who’ve taken more traditional paths in life. Some have gone to university and have 9-to-5 jobs already and have to buy funny things like lawnmowers and cutlery. I know that sounds silly, but I have a real fear I’ll never own a home or be able to support a family because of the decision I’ve made, so of course that’s scary. I think I’ve quit the band a dozen times since we started and then wind up taking it back an hour later because I know it’s just fear talking,” says frontwoman Katie Munshaw.

Recorded at Quebec’s Mechanicland Studios and in Munshaw’s mother’s basement, The Sun and Her Scorch was produced by Dizzy and mixed by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Florence + The Machine). Describing their recording process as “totally challenging and completely rewarding,” the band took an entirely self-directed approach to every aspect of the album’s creation, introducing a more kinetic energy into their sound through their lavish use of live instrumentation. Taping into their increased sense of closeness and confidence, the band brings its truth-telling to confessions of insecurity, resentment and fear of failure.

Of The Sun and Her Scorch, Munshaw says, “Baby Teeth was all about the confusion and sadness of my late teens, but this one is more about the qualities about myself that I’m not very proud of. I wanted to be completely honest about the things nobody ever wants to admit, like being jealous of your friends or pushing away the people who love you. So instead of being about romantic heartbreak, it’s really about self-heartbreak.”
