Following sizeable radio and playlist support for his ‘Out Of The Darkness’ single (released in May 2019), Gizmo Varillas returns with a new single ‘Danza Da Sombras’ on August 16th.
‘Out Of The Darkness’ received plays on BBC Radio Two (Jo Wiley), BBC 6 Music (Chris Hawkins;Tom Robinson), BBC Radio Wales (Janice Long; Adam Walton), BBC London (Gary Crowley) and Amazing Radio (Shell Zenner), and was also added to Spotify’s ‘A Perfect Day’, ‘Discover With Friends’, ‘Feel Good Dinner’ and ‘FIFA 19’ playlists, as well as to the Apple Music ‘A List’ and ‘Breaking Singer Songwriter’ playlists.
And now, hot on the heels of ‘Out Of The Darkness’, comes ‘Danza Da Sombras’. The second single to be taken from his forthcoming third album, Gizmo explains “Danza de sombras means dancing shadows in Spanish. It’s a metaphor for the constant dance between light and dark, good and evil”.
“They say the eyes are the window to the soul... In Danza de Sombras I take a closer look, it's a love song to the world and our humanity. There will always be shadows that walk beside us, but the important thing is to not forget the beauty that surrounds us”.
Take a listen to the sun-drenched, dreamlike harmonies, flamenco flourishes, and soaring chorus of ‘Danza Da Sombras’.
Previous albums ‘Dreaming Of Better Days’ (2018) and ‘El Dorado’ (2017) have seen Gizmo amass huge acclaim. Featured on a number of Netflix shows, fans have streamed his music more than 13 million times on Spotify (with 275,000 monthly listeners; 700,000 monthly streams), his music has received similar big love from radio stations, with plays on BBC 6 Music (Lauren Laverne, Chris Hawkins, Tom Robinson, Radcliffe; Maconie), Amazing Radio (A List; No. 11 Radio Chart), BBC London (Jo Good, Gary Crawley ; Robert Elms), and BBC Radio Wales (Janice Long; Adam Walton).
Gizmo will play his first London headline show of 2019 at Camden Assembly on November 26th.
