Cat Velez - 9th June 2016

Dagny’s debut track Backbeat has inspired a good-looking performance video with all the bells and whistles, directed by the prolific Malia James.

The Norwegian singer dazzles the viewer, performing with a sparkle in her eye under the lights of a disco ball, then reflecting the blue glare from dozens of TV screens in a sequined outfit, and then multiplied on the screen in a kaleidoscopic effect. Its a playful promo for a fun, punchy song.
