Los Angeles-based indie electro-pop artist Disco Shrine, AKA Jessica Delijani, is also an acclaimed DJ who has toured all over the US. She kicked off her music career in 2015 as a bedroom-pop songstress, but has reemerged in 2018 as a full-on electronic pop powerhouse.
Her new single Up In The Air is a statement of intent for this New Year and is the first of a series of songs Delijani will be releasing. The story-telling tune is a personal one as she narrates her parents’ journey of immigrating to America from Iran. It’s also a universal topic that covers the struggle and hope of the immigrant wishing to make a better life for him/herself in a new country.
While the subject matter may be heavy and thought-provoking, the sonics of Up In The Air are the opposite, with high-energy beats, bright synths diffusion, and uplifting choruses that will sweep you off your feet. Delijani mixes in her sweetly vibrant vocals to overall captivating effect.
