Disco Shrine releases new single "Everyday"
Los Angeles-based artist Disco Shrine is back with a brand new single entitled “Everyday”. The single is a follow up of her last single “Up In The Air” released earlier this year. Produced by Joey Pepe, “Everyday” features Austin hip-hop artist Omenihu.
"The sentiment of the chorus is "Everyday I'm on my own". It's not meant to be a melancholy sentiment, but one that represents the hard work that goes into achieving your dreams. Because at the end of the day, the only person that's going to really believe in you and get you to where you want to go is yourself,” explains Disco Shrine.
You can stream and purchase “Everyday” on all major streaming platforms.
Hi ! How are you? What have you been up to since our last interview ?
Hey, I'm good! I just finished playing two benefit shows, one was my release party I threw at a Laundromat and the other was The Billy Ball, a benefit festival hosted by Charli XCX, Dorian Electra, and Allie X.
Your "Up In The Air" music video got released a month ago, what did people think of it? Are you happy about the response you got so far ?
That video was so magical in so many ways. It all came together so fast.. it was like it was meant to be made. The responses I got from people were amazing. You don't realize how much people can relate to your story until you put it out there in the world. I still get messages from people thanking me for voicing the journey of immigrants/first gen kids. It's something that's not talked about a lot, especially in pop music.
You've just released a new single called "Everyday". What's the story behind this song?
“Everyday” is a follow up to “Up In The Air” which was inspired by my parents immigrating to America after the Iranian Revolution in the hopes that they could give my family a better future. “Everyday” is all about seizing that opportunity and not taking it for granted. The sentiment of the chorus is "Everyday I'm on my own". However, it's not meant to be a melancholy sentiment, but one that represents the hard work that goes into achieving your dreams. Because at the end of the day, the only person that's going to get you to where you want to go is yourself.
Could you describe us the songwriting/recording/production process ? When did you start working on this song ?
“Everyday” was also one of those magic moments where it all came together so serendipitously. It actually started on Instagram. I stumbled upon my friend, Joey Pepe's, insta story where he posted a clip of the beat. I ended up dm'ing him saying it was fire and that song became Everyday. I actually didn't have anything written for it, but on the day of the session, I had a one hour commute to the studio (east side to west side during traffic hour). That's where I came up with the entire song. All via voice memo. We ended up getting it out in the studio so fast. It was perfect <3
How was it like to work with Omenihu?
Omenihu is a gem and so much fun to work with. I sent him the song in the studio and told him what it was about. He sent me his verse back within an hour. I knew I wanted to work with him on this song, because at the time he was just making a huge move to LA from his hometown Austin and was going through all of the same things I was talking about in the song. The timing of it all just worked out perfectly <3
Any upcoming EP/Album ?
Maybe ;) ... I do plan on releasing a lot of music in 2019!
What message do you want to deliver to the readers of this blog ?
Do what you love to do, cuz life is too short to not <3
