Dikajee, oceansoul singer-songwriter, visual artist. Dikajee is a former Russian based proggers and her debut album Forget~Me~Nots was recently released, and she now shares haunting new video for new single In The Blink Of An Eye.
Says, «This song is a triumph of escapism, it has no purpose, no morality, it’s just a pure emotion of disappointment, desperation and anxiety. I wrote a sketch for it in 2020 and got back to it in 2022. When the world hurts so badly, you hide under your bed, like a child. You just want to close your eyes and pretend that this is not really happening, to stop feeling what you feel, stop hearing what you hear, stop worrying, just hide in your world».
«You want to gain some energy to wake up and try to be a better person, to share your energy and do what you can to make someone else feel better. The song itself has a rather tricky harmony and measurements and may actually feel like a dancing song. But it’s a very, very sad song».
Forget~Me~Nots was recorded and produced in Norway, Portugal, Germany, France, Latvia, Russia, and features guest appearances from Faun’s Fiona Rüggeberg (bagpipes), Klone’s Guillaume Bernard (guitars), Erik Truffaz’s Artis Orubs (drums) and Amber Foil’s João Filipe (guitars) among others.
