Dasha “Makes A Scene” With Her Latest Single
After releasing her EP, $hiny Things, in 2021 and growing in TikTok popularity, Dasha is now dropping her latest single, “Make A Scene.” An alt-pop track with a dramatic flair and gorgeous vocals, “Make A Scene” showcases the desire to show off that special someone to the world, especially at the beginning of the relationship when everything is new and full of possibilities for the future.
Listen to “Make A Scene” below:
The song begins with a simple instrumental so that the focus is mainly on Dasha’s vocals, which slowly build to the chorus with the addition of percussion. Its slow tempo adds a sensual vibe with an attitude that perfectly captures the song’s meaning. “Make A Scene” further creates this atmosphere with its lyrics such as, “Lets give them a red lipstick/ all over your skin,” and starting the pre-chorus with, “Let’s make out on the highway.” “Make A Scene” is all about showing the couple’s love to the world, no matter what anyone thinks.
Dasha further explains the inspiration and creative process behind “Make A Scene,”
“I wrote ‘Make A Scene’ with The Gifted in LA and I remember going home that night and I listening back to the rough day bounce but instantly knew this song would be an integral part of my debut album. I had the title/ lyric ‘Make A Scene’ in my song ideas in my notes app for months. I pulled inspiration from the golden age of Hollywood in both production and lyrical choices. There’s something so timeless about that era that’s so inspiring to my artistry. ‘Make A Scene’ is all about wanting to show someone off to the world in the most confident and glamorous way- ‘darling let’s make a scene.’”
“Make A Scene” is the fourth track off of Dasha’s debut album, Dirty Blonde (which just came out yesterday!), and includes other stand-out tracks such as “Olivia” and “Eyeliner.” Dasha shares the story behind the album,
“Dirty Blonde is all about juxtaposition…The dark and the light. The screaming and the crying. Breaking up and falling in love. The seduction and the innocence. The dirty and the blonde. I wouldn’t pin it to one genre either, though it falls under the pop umbrella. You’ll hear country/folk influences, punk rock influences, classical music influences, and more. But what holds it all together is that it was all written by me. All the stories are mine.”
To celebrate the album’s release, the artist is hosting two album release shows; one on January 29th in Los Angeles, CA, at the Morrocan Lounge (get tickets here), as well as on February 15th at The Mercury Lounge in New York City, NY (get tickets here).
Dasha first started her musical journey with the release of her debut single, “Moments,” in 2017, and since then has released numerous singles and covers (including a remix of REM’s “Losing My Religion“) alongside her EP $hiny Things and now her debut album, Dirty Blonde.
