It seems unlikely, because dance duo Seeb is known for their club-friendly beats. But their songs always include an undercurrent of real emotion. Their international hit I Took a Pill in Ibiza, for instance, was a remix of Mike Posner's acoustic song, with autobiographical lyrics that portrayed a real lost soul. And Seeb managed to make a beat that was danceable, with a melody that still portrayed heartache.
That's why Seeb and Dagny work so well together- Seeb understands how to turn heartache into a party- and Dagny brings the heartache. Her voice is passionate and raw and drags you into her emotions. When she sings about lying on the living room floor in the new single Drink About, its like youre stretched out on the carpet next to her. It was one of those songs that was really painful to write. Dagny confesses. And the rawness that she pours into her songwriting really pays off.
Seeb and Dagny also performed a rendition of Dagny's single Used to You, which touches on the pain of fading love. And while their emotional acoustic performances aren't necessarily a party, they are something you'll want to watch over and over and over.
Born Dagny Norvoll Sandvik, Dagny is a Norwegian pop singer and songwriter who hails from the northern city of Troms. The daughter of jazz guitarist/composer ystein Norvoll and jazz singer Marit Sandvik, she Dagny relocated to London, England in her twenties before her debut single, "Backbeat," appeared in September 2015. It quickly became a streaming hit, garnering half a million plays in its first week and millions more in the months that followed. Her debut EP was expected in 2016. ~ Marcy Donelson
