Una Daniela opens up about the loud voices in her head through song "Strangers"

After the first debut single "Apstājas laiks" released in november, Una Daniela releases song "Strangers" with her band "The Electroads", also presenting video of the song.

This song was created as a next chapter after singer's first single, talking about important, current topics that author herself has gone through in her life and wants to talk about in her music.

"We all have those loud voices in our heads. I call them strangers. The ones who say that you're not enough, that you'll fail and fall. Sometimes it feels like it's not me whispering in my head. I can't believe that something so negative and destructive is laying in my deeper-self, I just want you to get out of my head! Song tells about the mind struggle that everyone goes through,''  says Una.

Through this song, Una Daniela talks about a kind of battle with yourself, facing your loud fear. You may experience a period when you realize that you are stuck in a stage or routine that you want to get out of. You want something more, but it's hard to get yourself together and start. At the end of the song, there are words "You can't push me down, you won't see me drown". This is what the author reminds to every listener - be aware of yourself, accept and climb out of your own darkness.

The video displays a storm of emotions between reality and thoughts, world of voices that are trying to get close to our consciousness and further actions.

"In the making of video, I would like to thank the main operator, montage director Kristiāns Bērziņš, video director Toms Veiss, drone pilot Kārlis Alfrēds Feldbergs, and song producer Rūdolfs Ozols." In the creation of the song and video participated Una's original music band "The Electroads", which includes keyboardist Matīss Žilinskis, cellist Erna Daugaviete, bassist Toms Kursītis and drummer Sigvards Dižais.

In recent years, singer, multi-instrumentalist Una Daniela has actively collaborated with various artists: Shipsea, Ukrainian singer Vera Brezhneva, group "Brainstorm", "Astro'n'out", hip-hop performers Ozols, Edavārdi and others.

This summer, you will be able to hear Una Daniela on July 18 performing together with Shipsea at Jurmala festival concert "Dzimuši Latvijā'', which takes place in the Dzintari concert hall, as well as July 12 in the culture venue M/darbnīca.
