Sydney-based artist THE BLSSM shares their new single “Dizzy” today. Produced by Suzy Shinn (Dua Lipa, Panic! At the Disco), Nick Long (Machine Gun Kelly, LILHUDDY), and James Ivy, the surefire record blends elements of grunge and pop with kinetic beats and high-impact, unabashedly honest lyricism.
Speaking on the track, THE BLSSM notes that “The lyrics on a surface level allude to being about a significant other, but really they are inner-conversational and inspired by the weight of ‘dragging around’ emotional baggage that encompasses my life. The production is an intentional hybrid of all of my different sonic influences, re-imagined into my own rendition of what pop feels and sounds like for me.”
“The video, directed by my friend and collaborator Sophie Hur, is a window into a surrealist world where two alternate BLSSMs are chasing each other around in a devious but playful dance together,” they add. It was inspired by a dream I had once where there were two versions of myself seeking the other out; I feel like that’s exactly what personifies my dynamic with my anxiety. A constant chase and revelation: A narrative I feel and know all too well day-to-day.”
“Dizzy” is THE BLSSM’s first single under her recent imprint with record label and Elektra subsidiary Fueled by Ramen. It arrives after her August release of “Sports Car” and prior to that, her single “Spike Collar.” Tune in to the visual effort below.
