Norwegian Pop Music Star Dagny Releases Her full length 12-tracks debut album ‘Strangers / Lovers‘
Earlier this year Dagny released ‘Side A’ of the album. Today, October 2nd, she releases ‘Side B’ – thereby completing her debut full length album, Strangers / Lovers.
Dagny Says: “Very early on in the process of creating Strangers / Lovers, the themes of the songs made me think of it as a concept album,” Dagny adds. “I wanted the listener to spend time with each side of the album, as both sides represent very different emotions”.
Showcasing her growth as an artist and her focused creative vision as a purveyor of joyous electro-pop, the album – divided into distinct halves, tracks the journey of a relationship. The first half documenting the blossoming early stages of a new love, and the second – examining the fall out of that relationship.
Going into a little more detail on the difference between ‘Side A’ and ‘Side B’, Dagny added: “It’s mainly the lyrics that separate the two sides. Though I also tried to recreate the theme and the journey through the whole relationship within the music itself. On ‘Side A’, I think this is made clear by the fact that the production is very clean and polished. ‘Side B’ on the other hand possibly comes across as more of a “bumpy” ride.
The gap between the emotions and the expressions in these songs also appears in the music. From the trivial, to the hurtful, to the naked and brutally honest, to “everything is going well with me”, to the despair, to the relief, to the melancholy. For me, the more stripped back songs in the second half therefore become a strength.”
