Dizzy Announce New Album, Share New Single ‘Open Up Wide’

    Dizzy have announced their new self-titled album, sharing the single ‘Open Up Wide’ along with the news. The follow-up to 2020’s The Sun and Her Scorch is set to drop on August 18 via Communion. Check out ‘Open Up Wide’ and see the album cover and tracklist below.

    “When we started recording the album, our producer David [Pramik] was super conscious of cutting the fat from each song,” singer Katie Munshaw explained in a statement. “One afternoon he encouraged us to write our parts in a simpler, more ‘spoonfed’ fashion for easy listening, when Mack piped up cheekily ‘Open up wide! Here comes the airplane!’ The next morning we were all feeling a bit resentful of that mindset and ‘Open Up Wide’ came to be while we were having our morning coffees.”

    “When it was time to discuss visuals for the album I had serious anxiety about being on camera,” she added. “I find it strange how musicians are often introverted people yet one of the largest parts of our job is visually selling ourselves to an audience. It feels unnatural to pine for strangers’ attention to afford rent or whatever, and as someone who’s particularly sensitive it isn’t sustainable. To me the mask not only represents a calloused version of myself but it lends itself to an anonymity that I love. I like the idea of a female artist making the conscious decision to take her appearance out of the question for the audience.”
