NEW SINGLE FROM DIZZY “OPEN UP WIDE” OUT NOW
Ontario alt-pop four-piece Dizzy shares their new single “Open Up Wide”. A perfect synthesis of airy pop vocals and grittier instrumentals, “Open Up Wide” explores the vulnerability of sharing fresh art with a jaded audience. Along with the new single, Dizzy also announces the release of their third LP: the self-titled DIZZY (August 18th).
Opening with a whimsical, rollicking drum groove that is quickly joined by lead singer Katie Munshaw’s flawlessly sugary vocals, “Open Up Wide” is addictive from its onset. Sonically captivating and thematically scathing the track is an insatiable ear worm, audaciously criticizing the way industry perverts the artistic process.
On the undeniably groovy chorus Katie feels the pressure to sell out for success as she croons “Open up wide / gotta pay to rent / to rot away in my mom’s basement/ Open up wide / got to pay to get / to get the kids in front head banging”
Dizzy shared this of the new single:
“When we started recording the album our producer David was super conscious of cutting the fat from each song. One afternoon he encouraged us to write our parts in a simpler, more ‘spoonfed’ fashion for easy listening, when Mack piped up cheekily ‘Open up wide! Here comes the airplane!’. The next morning we were all feeling a bit resentful of that mindset and ‘Open Up Wide’ came to be while we were having our morning coffees. It’s a tongue in cheek ode to a music industry we’ve never understood all that well.”
Release Date: March 29, 2023
