Why do we like this?
It's always really hard to win me over with female-fronted electro-pop, but DANAE managed to pull it off on "Actualized."
My guess is that the allure of the song has something to do with the melody? It's smooth and easy on the ears, with the outstanding production quality worth a mention as well.
You'll be able to grab this as part of her upcoming EP Direction, due for release on June 10th.

DANAE – DREAM TOUR
First, I’ve always loved the energy Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic brings to the stage. His writing and performing have influenced the way I write and the way I want to connect with the audience. Each time I see him sing, I feel like he gives everything he has in him to the audience. If I was opening for him, just maybe the magic would rub off and maybe, just maybe, we could write some songs together in the green room. Hey, it’s a Dream Tour.

"...I don't think anyone should pass this track up."
Everything about this pop hit is great, from production, all the way down to her astounding vocals. I don't think anyone should pass this track up.
"Hand-crafted dark seductive electropop..."
DANAE offers up hand-crafted dark seductive electropop on the Nashville based singer songwriter’s song Actualized. The collaboration with Los Angeles based producer Phil Danyew is a cascade of glossy synths and sensually smooth Carmody, Oh Wonder, and Alina Baraz like fleecy vocals. Actualized swells and sways, a softly pulsating work of sublimely soothing ambient electronica and pop. Actualized is out as a single right now via iTunes, and a debut EP is slated for release June 10th.
