August Song 6: "Roman Candles" by Dizzy

“Roman Candles” by Dizzy

Canadian four-piece band Dizzy have released their newest record The Sun and Her Scorch. ‘Roman Candles’ is their most promising song to date. The video sees Dizzy lead vocalist Katie Munshaw singing and dancing solo in several locations over the dreamy indie-pop ballad. Check it out here:

“Roman Candles” Lyrics

You were a friend of mine
When I worked twice a week on the weekends
Two teenage dirt bags
And I know that it’s different now
I heard you moved out where the lake never freezes
I’m not mad I just don’t really see it

You were a friend of mine
Now I’m working the night shift on Beatrice
And I go to bed to rise
And I play with this local band
And the money is shit but I’ve got somewhere to sleep at night

And I’m just stuck in this town I can’t handle
Watching you light it up
From a north end parking lot
While I’m just setting off roman candles

And I’m just stuck in this town I can’t handle
Watching you light it up
From a north end parking lot
While I’m just setting off roman candles

Now where do I put this all down?
I carry it high in my chest
Tastes like blood in the mouth

And when the gun powders all rung out
I’ll bury it deep in the dirt
Raise my glass to the ground
To the lowly dirt bags

And I’m just stuck in this town I can’t handle
Watching you light it up
From a north end parking lotWhile I’m just setting off roman candles

And I’m just stuck in this town I can’t handle
Watching you light it up
From a north end parking lot
While I’m just setting off roman candles

Dizzy Bio

On their 2018 debut album Baby Teeth, Dizzy offered up a batch of lucidly detailed coming-of-age songs, a real-time reflection on the minor tragedies and major disappointments of post-adolescence. As their dream-pop opus drew global acclaim (and won Best Alternative Album at the 2019 Juno Awards), the Oshawa, Ontario-based band found that their finely wrought outpouring had built a powerful bond with their fans—a contingent that frontwoman Katie Munshaw refers to as “our little heartbreak club.” Joined by the trio of brothers who make up the rest of Dizzy—drummer Charlie Spencer and his siblings Alex (guitar) and Mackenzie (bass)—Munshaw soon set to work on new music that explores an even more tangled landscape of feelings.

“Baby Teeth was all about the confusion and sadness of my late teens, but this one is more about the qualities about myself that I’m not very proud of,” says Munshaw of Dizzy’s self-produced sophomore effort, The Sun and Her Scorch, to that end, the album’s title serves as a metaphor for the quietly damaging effects of those qualities, both on Munshaw herself and on those in her orbit. “I wanted to be completely honest about the things nobody ever wants to admit, like being jealous of your friends or pushing away the people who love you,” she says. “So instead of being about romantic heartbreak, it’s really about self-heartbreak.”

The Sun and Her Scorch is out now.
