Words by Tim Hakki @TimHakki
The message to Dynesti Williams’s new song ‘Balcony (Lost It) is a stark one: “approximately one million people die from suicide per year. That is 1 death every 30 seconds” reads the intro to the video. But Dynesti uses music, lyricism and dance as a form of ascension, channeling the darkness of her subject matter into something invigorating and beautiful to behold. Her lyrics take us into the fictionalised mind of a suicidal person whose outlet is music and melody. The christian symbolism (appealing to God) and frequently twisted imagery (“I’ll be singing on the fall from my balcony”) all work up an atmosphere that is at once spellbinding and inspiring. Dynesti isn’t just thinking person’s music, she’s also an awe inspiring new artist.
'Balcony' is the first single to be taken from Dynesti's album The Dyna, release date: TBC
