Edinburgh-based witch-pop sensation, DAHLIA, casts a spell with her latest single, ‘Keep Running,’ as she delves into those melancholic post-party emotions. Known for her bewitching vocals, DAHLIA takes a slight detour towards a snappy and euphoric production, hinting at a more dance-floor-friendly sound.

The song opens with glitching beats and pulsating bass, setting the stage for a haunting ethereal beauty that intertwines with teasing trance vibes. DAHLIA’s vocals delicately lick the track with a pop-infused vibrancy, creating an enchanting sonic experience.

Embracing a jazz-infused neo-soul sound, ‘Keep Running’ serves as a testament to DAHLIA’s versatile artistry. Co-produced alongside her long-term collaborator Jordan Stanley, the track explores themes of loneliness and feeling like an outsider, no matter where one goes. However, it carries a subtle optimism, gently guiding listeners towards a more positive outlook.

DAHLIA’s musical journey began during the lockdown period, representing the moon sign of artist Kerris Duffy. Her ethereal dance-pop creations draw inspiration from personal experiences battling mental illness and navigating life as a queer woman.

With previous accolades including being featured twice as the track of the week on BBC Introducing Scotland, as well as receiving support from renowned publications like The Skinny and Snack Magazine, DAHLIA has proven herself as a rising star in the industry. She has also shared the stage with notable acts such as BABii and Miya Follick while headlining shows in her beloved hometown.

Explaining the meaning behind ‘Keep Running,’ DAHLIA shares, “It’s about trying to escape from your problems and realizing that it’s not a viable solution. It’s a bit foolish to keep running away. Instead, you must face up to things and muster the courage to tackle them head-on. In the nicest way possible, it’s all about living in the moment and asking yourself, ‘What do I do now?’ The song encapsulates a sense of anxiety, fear of the unknown, and uncertainty about what lies ahead, but ultimately carries a ray of hopefulness.”

Embrace the enchanting sounds of DAHLIA’s ‘Keep Running’ and let yourself be captivated by her mesmerizing musical enchantment.
