Dani Felt releases debut single Queen which covers topics of female empowerment and the music definitely supports that feeling. You can pre-save the single by clicking here.
Felt starts off with strong vocal harmonies, quickly followed by thick layers of drums and synths that pound to the beat of authority as she sings a catchy melodic hook. The verse gives off some dark pop vibes, similar to what you might hear from Billie Eilish, however distinctly unique in vocal tone and phrasing when presenting the message. Dani says, “If I had three words to describe my song it would be dramatic, seductive & empowering. My song influencers were Banks or Lorde.”
The chorus of this song comes in strong while proclaiming the message loud and clear, ending with the line “Bow down to me like I am your Queen“. When it comes to the production, “Queen” gives an Imagine Dragons or Awolnation kind of presentation, being that the layers are a wall of luscious synths and harmonies over a strong kick and snare. Heart Songs Records Owner Jill Pavel says, “When Dani played this song for us during a business meeting, I knew I wanted to distribute the song for her. Dani took a 9-year break from releasing her own music and this song is a powerful way to relaunch your career. I really like a woman who knows who she is and knows how to deliver a message of female empowerment. The world has been talking about Cardi D’s WAP song and we are over here saying….the Queen is right here.”
The overall production, lyrics, and instrumentation mesh in such a way that you can’t help but acknowledge the sense of power emitting from the song. What a great single to lead off with. There is certainly a bright future ahead for Dani Felt if she continues to deliver at this level.
