After dropping her brand new single ‘DOLL’ from her critically acclaimed debut EP Stardive, Los Angeles singer/songwriter ADANNA DURU has released her new sophomore EP Manic Pixie Dreamgirl.
Adanna Duru wrote the soulful lyrics and also co-produced the 7-track EP with longtime collaborators Wiidope & Ear Mac, who collaborated on four tracks on this project, Dauman Records’ Nick Jameson, and indietronica powerhouse Clearside, The Manic Pixie Dreamgirl EP brings poetic, emotive and honest vocals with mesmerizing, soulful production.
‘Manic Pixie Dreamgirl’ about overcoming rejection, and the thumping synth-heavy ‘One Way Street’ which addresses just how fake the music industry can be, to the infectious piano and drums led ‘Too Late’ and the Destiny’s Child ‘Bills, Bills Bills’ inspired ‘Dreams That Keep You Up At Night’, to the atmospheric R&B bop ‘Doll’ about refusing to be a ‘trophy wife’
“I am a manic pixie dreamgirl. The first time I heard the term was in one of my creative writing courses at University of California, Riverside, I instantly felt connected to who she was. She is very weird and quirky, but also stunning and unique; overlooked because of how different she is. However, her downfall is that her story is never developed. We only see her from the perspective of the male protagonist. We don’t get to see her past, her desires, her struggles, or her dreams”.
