EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Danielle Parente – “Make It Rain”
Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Danielle Parente will release her sophomore album, Dark Eyes, on September 18 and Sensible Reason has her newest single, “Make It Rain,” for our fans to check out first! Among Parente’s influences are Portishead, Sade, Sia, Bjork, Radiohead, and Fiona Apple, and her newest track is right at home among them with its darkly lingering vibe.
Haunted vocals that surround you like smoke, with a soulful yet simple soundscape, “Make It Rain” showcases her gorgeous voice, poignant lyrics, and her audio engineering and production skills honed while attending New York City’s Institute of Audio Research. Of the song, Parente has said:
“I obviously wrote this song about balling out in the strip club. Just kidding. Although that’s always a good time. LOL”
“No actually this song is about harnessing energy. It’s about having a certain kind of confidence or awareness of your ability to have a sort of power or influence over your surroundings. Whether it be over another person or the weather or even having premonitions about the future. It’s about coming on strong and almost blindsiding someone. It’s about being underestimated.”
“And throwing dollar bills.”
Parente’s sense of humor is as polished as her pipes. While the track may not be about strip clubs, however, it will surely make a huge splash in the dance club scene. Check it out for yourself and see what you think!
