Enigmatic Gold Coast singer/songwriter d e n n i s. has this week introduced herself with all new single 'Alive', a dance-infused electro-pop tale of an all too relatable bittersweet love. For fans of Kimbra, Robinson and Astrid S, judging by this first installment, it is sure that d e n n i s.'s name will not be going away anytime soon.
"With 'perfect' cliche's and somewhat fairytale ideals, 'Alive' romantices how easy it is to get caught up in the wrong type of relationships" says Olivia Dennis on the song. "In the end an untrue love can only lead to a false sense of hope, foolishly beating you 'Alive'."
Written with the help of Luaté here on the Gold Coast, 'Alive' passed its way through a few producers before finding its way into the hands of Jarryd Shuker (Art of Sleeping) early this year. The infectious new song was mixed by Tristan Hoogland (Ball Park Music, Golden Vessel, Woodes and mastering) by Matthew Agoglia (The Ranch Mastering, New York).
d e n n i s. is the solo project of accomplished Gold Coast artist Olivia Dennis who combines her love for grooves and swagger with her lush, unique vocal layering with effortless melodies that stick with you long after the first listen, inviting listeners into an electronic indie pop party.
The enigmatic lyrics in d e n n i s.'s songs are matched by a voice that is both sultry and undeniably fierce. Pairing up with local and international producers Jarryd Shuker, MDWS and Malone, d e n n i s. has found her own personal niche with a sonic palette exclusive to herself. Far before the release d e n n i s. had already accomplished herself in many areas, establishing herself as one of 4 finalists in the 2016 Queensland Music Awards' singer/songwriter category, a 2017 QUBE Effect Finalist and awardee of the Queensland Conservatiorium's LA and Nashville Scholarship, Olivia Dennis's accolades extend far past the expectation of an artist at the brink of their career.
