Toronto, Ont. (June 8, 2021) – Award winning Canadian-Croatian artist Dani Kristina, releases her hot new disco-pop single entitled “Gambler” and the official music video featuring another Canadian with Croatian heritage, TikTok star Katarina Moguš.
Inspired by personal experiences and from those around her, “Gambler” reflects on the imagery of relationships depicting the idea of wondering whether or not the other individual reciprocates the same feelings.
Produced by Grammy-nominee Trevor James Anderson and written by Dani Kristina, the new single is an energetic disco-pop track that sonically encompasses sounds similar to Dua Lipa, the “new” Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson.
This past year Dani Kristina was named the Best New Solo Artist by Canadian Music Week and Mississauga Music. Her music video for “Drift Away,” won Best Pop Music Video at Dropout Entertainment’s Independent Canadian Music Video Awards.
“Gambler” is an energetic disco-pop song inspired by the vintage synths of various influences, telling the story of a failed relationship when one person is more invested than the other.
With the music video featuring TikTok star @katamogz (En Flique Creative), this song explores the risks of being “all in” to somebody without being aware of the risks. The music video was self-directed and edited by Dani Kristina, but she also worked with cinematographer Paul Persic to make the vision come to life.
Taking place in a vintage casino, the symbolism of the lyrical story is shown through Dani Kristina and a girl playing blackjack, where the dealer represents the person they both have feelings for, and as the two “play” for him, he ultimately holds the cards that decides who wins.
The release of “Gambler” is just the beginning for Dani Kristina. In the coming months she will be releasing more tracks that explore the relationship presented in “Gambler,” and one’s feelings as they change over time. Be sure to follow her on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to keep up with new releases.
With her father’s family coming from Zagreb, and her mother from Primošten, Dani is strongly influenced by her Croatian culture. Kata is a second-generation Croatian. Her parents are from the Karlovac area.
