Reliably informed

If Enya made a sci-fi soundtrack with Jean-Michel Jarre, you might end up with Danica Dares’ new single Siren.

Opening with a fast, synthetic sound, there is something 80’s about this composition. Harriet McBain’s ghostly vocals echo over the top, pulling you into the story and holding you captive with repetitive and eerie lyrics.

Danica Dares does a brilliant job of creating an atmosphere that is both haunting and yet somehow warmly inviting, ethereal and ominous.

Using tales of the mythical Siren, they are able to create parallels between feminine powers of the ancient world and the strength of women of today, particularly with the unexpected use of a monologue breakdown in the second half of the track.

FFO of Gothic 80’s synth.
