After a year of reflection and growth, electro pop duo Priscilla return with their new song ‘Dance Through The Night’ and have a cheeky tour planned to celebrate.
The duo is made up of incredible vocalist Priscilla and dynamic producer and multi-instrumentalist Luke Minness. They have only been releasing music since 2018, but through powerful beats, hard-hitting lyrics and all around embracing their future pop sound, they have seen massive success. Their first two years of impressive live performances landed then supporting the likes of The Presets, San Cisco, Haiku Hands, EDEN, ALPINE, Wafia, Woodes, Matthew Young and many more. As well as supporting some of Australia’s best, the musicians have also garnered more attention from stages at events like Fairbridge Festival, RTRFM’s Fremantle Winter Music Festival, WAMFest and even the WA Art Gallery’s annual Art Ball.
Even though the pair had been spending all their energy putting their well established pieces out on display for live audiences to see and hear, they are excited to announce that new music is on the horizon.
Their new single ‘Dance Through The Night’ was actually written in 2020 and is about mourning missed opportunities and working through that grief. Priscilla further explains, “It’s about accepting and validating that it’s ok to feel frustrated and defeated if it hasn’t come together in the way you hope for- just yet. And that sometimes finding joy with the one/s you love (if you’re able to), can provide a little reprieve for a while.”
To celebrate the release of their new song, the duo threw a ‘Dance Through the Night’ launch show, which was a multi disciplinary prom themed live show at The Rechabite. The duo was asked to encore and play the single twice at the end of the set which I think sat beautifully with the meaning behind the track.
Priscilla speaks more on the meaning of the song and how the idea for the launch party came together; “…[there are] thought processes turned to the feelings of grief and loss that can occur when you realise who you are later on in life. Those feelings of mourning the moments you never had a chance to experience; like being able to take who you want to take to the school ball and dress the way that affirms you.” When conceptualising the visual aspects of this release, the central lyrical motif of wanting to dance through the night with someone special remained at the main idea for this party, with Priscilla wanting to capture a joyous side to the emotionality of the song and share this with their audience.
