Dizzyride proudly present their video for “Young You” (directed by Angus Borsos.) They explain that the song is “an ode to love and to John Lennon. It is about finding solace in the caring heart of another and reaching a higher meaning in this crazy life.” Dizzyride’s new self-titled LP is out 1/20.
Nicola Donà & Zoë Kiefl formed Dizzyride after a spontaneous roadtrip lead Zoë from Montreal to Philadelphia in the summer of 2014. In order to return home, she transited through NYC where she serendipitously found herself sleeping on Nicola’s couch. Zoë remembered the Venetian man from a brief encounter in the city a few years prior. They had been introduced to one another as solo musicians (Zoë Kiefl, Horrible Present) with comparable sounds. The reunited duo bonded, became inseparable and began collaborating immediately. Zoë joined Nico on his summer tour the following month. They recorded ideas for songs via tapes and iPhone voice memos while composing with any & all instruments that they happened to stumble upon. Finally, Dizzyride set up shop in NYC where they officially began recording their music. Since then, two EPs have been released and they have toured Europe twice. Their forthcoming album is set to be released in January 2017 at which point they will begin touring the United States until they fly to Japan in the Spring. Their sound transforms minimalism, psychedelia, afro-beat, disco and soul music.
Greg never learns. He started Tigr Tigr as a replacement to his other blog, Ventvox.com. Ventvox.com ran as a pop culture blog from 2008-2013 and violently crashed on the very sad day of October 17, 2013. Greg's experience with blogging has grown within the past 10 years and Tigr Tigr is constantly evolving! Tigr Tigr has most recently added a both a forum and Tigr Tigr Podcast. Tigr Tigr Podcast can be found on iTunes, Google Play, Soundcloud and wherever good podcasts are located.
