Last week, Oshawa indie pop band Dizzy shared their new video for “Beatrice”, taken from their latest album, The Sun and Her Scorch. The album is out now on Royal Mountain Records to critical praise from the likes of Stereogum, MTV, World Cafe, The Line Of Best Fit, CBC Q American Songwriter, Dork, New Sounds, Coup de Main and more.
Frontwoman Katie Munshaw explains:
“The “Beatrice” video was unique to do because we were actually playing our instruments. In most music videos you’re meant to only pretend like you’re playing but Ryan was really keen on making the performance feel genuine- and after being apart for so long due to COVID we were stoked to be able to just hang out together and jam for a few hours. Having our gear plugged in for hours made the mirror room extremely hot and by the last take we were sweaty and tired and a little buzzed – so basically, we got our tour fix despite the looming pandemic outside the studio.”
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. Tapping into their increased sense of closeness and confidence, the band brings its truth-telling to confessions of insecurity, resentment and fear of failure. The Sun and Her Scorch is out now on Royal Mountain Records and available here.
