Our alt, dance-pop princess Dani Saldo has returned with her second fist pumping, booty shaking single – ‘No Strings Attached’. Following on from her debut ‘Friends Don’t’ released on her 21st birthday, it seems the young artist is determined to get us up and dancing with this new tune and we are here for it.
Overflowing with an undeniable and enviable youth, this tune is a carefree summertime vibe, painting pictures of being out with friends without a thought or a worry. It’s almost a cathartic release, as it hints at something a little deeper than what initially meets the ear, which Dani shares below.
As if lifted straight from the pages of her diary, Dani’s lyrical content is openly honest, genuine and relatable as she effortlessly laments on young love and self-discovery via moody melancholia and dreamy beats, oozing with nostalgia and reflection.
“I want people to be able to both dance and cry to my music , because that’s something I personally do (maybe a little too often). This one has a big fat drum fill before the chorus and a very empty almost sobering bridge. I wanted to reflect the moments when you know you’re running from a problem or hurt and you’re just drunk off your ass dancing and crying about your ex and contrast them with the uncomfortable “Who the fuck am I? Why am I doing this? What do I do without my ex? I miss them”. The way it’s produced kinda reminds me of when you go to the washroom or step out of a party. It’s a weirdly sobering moment amidst all the noise. But then you step back in to dance and get wasted and forget after.” – Dani Saldo.
