Emerging Canadian band, Dizzy, are thrilled to announce their forthcoming sophomore album, The Sun & Her Scorch, out July 31 via Royal Mountain Records. They also are excited to announce the release of their second single, “The Magician,” along with the song‘s accompanying music video.
The Sun and Her Scorch follows the 2018 Juno Award-winning debut album, Baby Teeth.
In a press release, frontwoman Katie Munshaw says, “The song is about wanting to magically bring a friend of mine who passed away back to life. To me ‘The Magician’ reeks of naivety and innocence in a way that really hurts my heart. Hoping she’ll walk into my gig at the local pub, hoping to see her mom at Sobeys just to remember how similar their laughs were. Hoping for magic. It’s a really emotional song for me but is masked by tricky, pretty production to make it sound almost joyful,” says frontwoman Katie Munshaw.
Because of isolation, the song’s original plan for the music video needed to be put on hold, so they brought in Marty MacPhearson to help create this visual during the quarantine. Collaborating separately, MacPhearson took footage that was shot by the band in isolation, and projected it onto some “small paper sets” he built in the darkest room in his apartment.
Prior to the announcement, the band released the album’s lead single, “Sunflower.”
The Sun and Her Scorch was recorded at Quebec’s Mechanicland Studios and in Munshaw’s mother’s basement. It was produced by Dizzy and mixed by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Florence + The Machine).
