Indie88 is bringing the incredible Dizzy to the Mod Club on April 16th, 2019. If you haven't already bought yours, then you can purchase tickets here.
I really can’t express how incredibly excited I am to see this Oshawa native band. I really fell in love with this band a couple of months ago after they released their debut LP, Baby Teeth. I’d highly recommend that you purchase this record! It has such a relaxing sound to it, and it will quickly put you into a state of relaxation, a type of relaxation that makes you want to move gracefully around your bedroom. One of their singles, "Joshua", makes me feel like I am in high school all over again, having that one crush, then falling in love for the first time and eventually feeling like you got you heart ripped out of your chest. You can listen and watch the video for this beautiful song here.
However, I have to say that personally, my favourite song on this record is called "Swim". There is this one line in the song that goes like this:
Goodbye to my mother whose body I lived in
Turned blood into water and taught me to swim
This one line really gave me chills, to me it’s evocative of the challenges of growing up and creating an identity for yourself. Even though it’s the band’s first album, I have to say they have a really mature sound. Take a listen to this song here.
I’d also really recommend taking a read of a recent interview that Dizzy did with Atwood Magazine, which you can read here.
I haven't seen Dizzy live yet so I am really excited to see their magic unfold in front of me. I hope to see you all there!
