We have a very happy start to the week with "Directions" -- the second single to be released from Dannika's upcoming LP Gems. Winsome and infectious, if it were a stray dog you encountered out walking you couldn't resist taking it home. It is not, in fact, a stray dog. But it is a perfectly formed pop tune, and you can take it home with you.
Melbourne's Dannika is the project of musician, songwriter and filmmaker Dannika Horvat and three friends, they produce indie pop that seems to have a gloss of something special. Take a test drive with the single, and set a calendar alert for January 29, when Gems will be released via Spunk Records and Osborne Again Music. The other members of Dannika are Liam Parsons, Stefan Blair, and Paul Ceraso.
