Dancing in the Dark is the latest cinematic pop single from Sciarra, an artist quickly becoming renowned for her velvet soft vocals, ethereal melodies and dramatic art-pop edge.
Her love for a cinematic sonic palette transpired from her time writing TV and Film music. Her experience truly shines through in Dancing in the Dark, which pulls you in by the sheer artistry and her ability to pull on your heartstrings until they’re as raw as the sentiments explored in her deeply conceptual tracks.
Dancing in the Dark was written post-lockdown, shortly after she lost her mum to cancer and she was diagnosed with skin cancer. After overcoming it, she was left to contend with her grief; music became an avenue of reprieve and Dancing in the Dark was born. The airwaves are infinitely richer for it. We can only hope that there are plenty more emotionally iron-wrought singles in the pipeline.
All proceeds from the single will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
Dancing in the Dark is now available to stream on SoundCloud.
