Set for release on 18th August via Communion Records, Dizzy have announced their self-titled third album. With the visuals for the record showing vocalist Katie Munshaw donning a striking mask, she explains, “When it was time to discuss visuals for the album I had serious anxiety about being on camera. I find it strange how musicians are often introverted people yet one of the largest parts of our job is visually selling ourselves to an audience. It feels unnatural to pine for strangers’ attention to afford rent or whatever, and as someone who’s particularly sensitive it isn’t sustainable. To me the mask not only represents a calloused version of myself but it lends itself to an anonymity that I love. I like the idea of a female artist making the conscious decision to take her appearance out of the question for the audience.” “There’s not a lot of mystery on the album,” she continues. “There’s a lot of songs on here I feel a little scared showing. Some lyrics I’m like, ‘I hope my mum doesn’t hear that!’” Sharing new track ‘Open Up Wide’ alongside the news, Katie adds, “When we started recording the album, our producer David [Pramik] 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.” Check it out below. ‘Dizzy’ Tracklisting: 1.
