Following on from “One by One” released earlier this year, Dana Gavanski has returned with an equally infectious piece of psychedelic folk in the form of “Catch.” Again produced by Mike Lindsay (Tunng, Lump w/ Laura Marling), Catch is “a conversation with the gods of creativity, an attestation to the daily struggle to be inspired and how not to lose direction” according to Dana.
“It’s often a challenge for me to believe in myself, to believe I have something I should deeply focus on, to the extent that other people find selfish and obsessive” continues Dana, “it’s my search for how to suspend judgement or loosen it enough to let something pass through.”
Catch is out now on all digital platforms, and the limited edition 7” single is available to pre-order from today as well: https://smarturl.it/danacatch
The 7” is limited to 300, one-time pressing, and includes the b-side “Off Again.” Dana’s previous 7” sold out, so act fast if you’d like one!
Dana Gavanski is a singer/songwriter currently living between Belgrade and Montreal. Born in Vancouver to a Serbian family, but relocating to Montreal to attend university, Dana originally planned to pursue a career in film. However, she shifted her attention back to music when her then ex-partner left her his guitar before moving to NYC. Having known only how to play ‘Diamonds and Rust’ by Joan Baez, Dana picked up a Travis Picking technique book and started re-learning how to play. When in the Summer of 2016, she took a job with her father as a producer’s assistant on a horror film in the Laurentians, she made enough to focus solely on developing her music for a year. With that came her first EP, Spring Demos, released via Fox Food Records in 2017. Dana followed this up with her first single for Full Time Hobby in 2019, One by One, produced by Mike Lindsay in his Margate studio.
Dana will be playing some headline shows in November in support of the new single. Full dates below, tickets available here: https://belmontbookings.nl/roster/?open-modal=dana-gavanski
