Born in Amsterdam and raised in Israel, Danny steps into the spotlight with a smooth and soulful cut influenced by ECM’s contemporary jazz, Balearic sounds and 90s neo-soul, with a hybrid sound-design edge, blending laid-back organic tones with left-field electronic production. Self-produced and recorded with the help of a close-knit team of well-known Israeli contemporary music artists including drummer Roy Reemy and multi-instrumentalist Yuli Shafriri, ‘Come Play With Me’, is a striking introduction and a glimpse into her upcoming EP.
Talking about the track Danny explains: “the lyrics are about the desire to live curiously and a constant reminder to play, which was the creative process I used to approach its songwriting. I recorded artists in a playful and organic way, with no pre devised plan, in different settings; the drums were recorded in a professional studio, the flute was recorded in a friend’s wardrobe. Some of the recordings were spontaneous and some Pre-calculated, which made it all fun and unexpected”.
The music video perfectly depicts the song’s vibe, born from an idea Danny had while walking in a forest, “hand in hand with whom I chose at the time to wander into the unknown”, she says, of the dreamy visuals shot over two days with close friends and family. “The video expresses a wild calling by humans for freedom and creativity. The experience was magical and intense. We allowed the forest to be the centre of the story,” adds Danny.
‘Come Play With Me’ is a startling introduction to Danny Kuttner’s unique sound and impressive songwriting.
