The 20 year old Canadian-Croatian singer-songwriter has been featured on CBC and UK Radio Wigwam
Award-winning singer-songwriter, Dani Kristina releases the music video for her powerful new single, “One Night Stand,” which she co-wrote with guitarist and friend Andrew Sporcic, who also has Croatian roots.
It was produced by Trevor James Anderson and recorded at Noble Street Studios in Toronto. “One Night Stand” is a personal and heartfelt ballad, which features layers of strings, synths, drums, and passionate vocals. Dani masterfully plays with the dynamics to build and release tension throughout the track.
“It’s about a risky romantic experience that was cut short by borders closing, which reflects on how things may have progressed if things were different,” explained Dani. “It examines many ‘what ifs’ but as much as the song remains hopeful, it’s actually telling a sad story of someone who really falls for another person, but never gets to explore it fully.” The music video is self-directed and edited by Dani Kristina, and it takes place in an elegant room that’s illuminated by sunlight. Dani can be seen pacing the room, laying on the bed, and completely embodying who she is in the song.
Her last single, “Gambler,” came out on June 7, 2021, and it has been streamed over 12,000 times across multiple platforms. It has also been featured on CBC and the UK Radio Wigwam. Both “One Night Stand” and “Gambler” are part of a larger story that has yet to be completed.
With her father’s family coming from Zagreb, and her mother from Primošten, Dani is strongly influenced by her Croatian culture.
The single is now available on all streaming platforms including Apple Music and Spotify.
