Hailing from the windswept plains of isolated Saskatoon, Canada, singer/songwriter Katie Tupper blends Neo-soul and indie seamlessly into a tantalizing concoction. While recent single ‘How Can I Get Your Love?‘ leaned more into the serene side of her sound, her latest offering, ‘Danny’, slides gracefully in another direction.
On display is her mastery of immediacy: it’s gentle, yet undeniably head-bobbing all at once, a deep dive into a finger-snapping, emotive blast of pure grace.
With swelling strings and twinkling keys exquisitely backing up an instantly catchy, syrupy drumline, Tupper’s voice soars over the track, telling a story of heartbreak and resentment, digging into that feeling of having so little left to lose that there’s hardly anything worth salvaging.
Taken from her debut EP, ‘Towards the End’ (PRE-SAVE HERE), ‘Danny’ captures everything that makes Tupper an essential, exciting new voice.
Speaking on both the track and its video, Tupper shares:
“‘Danny’ is about the biggest breakup I’ve, thankfully, ever had to go through. I was with a guy for a handful of years, most of which I was just hoping that something would happen that would give me an excuse to break up with him. Turns out, when you’re in a long term relationship and looking for a way out the entire time you build bad habits for all relationships to follow! Who would’ve thought! Danny is a reflection on that relationship, and asking how I’m supposed to move forward in my life with these poor habits stamped into my brain. The music video brought that idea to life in a colourful expedition for closure.”
