Dani Kristina Channels Glamour, Intrigue in Latest Disco-Pop Track 'Gambler' [WATCH]
Award-winning artist Dani Kristina returns with her latest single, a disco-pop banger titled "Gambler," accompanied by a music video that is both glamorous and sensual.
Inspired by her own personal experiences and drawing from those around her, "Gambler" is a rather mature reflection on the how relationships look and feel like - with Dani Kristina perfectly capturing the anxiety of whether love is actually reciprocated in the song's lines, "Losing sleep, not playing fair/ When did I become a gambler?/ Laying down the play/ But losing every game/ Raising my own stakes 'til I/ How could I lose myself tonight?"
Additionally, it is visually presented with a fitting music video concept that features TikTok superstar and En Flique Creative founder Katarina Mogus (@katamogz). Set in between intoxicating casino backgrounds and sober rooms that feature only Dani, the "Gambler" music video weaves in between what is literal and what is figurative. Scenes of Dani Kristina and Katarina Mogus having fun in a high-stakes game woven with Dani singing alone and asking "How could I lose myself tonight?" creates an image of its own.
Aside from featuring Katarina Mogus, the music video was self-directed and edited by Dani Kristina herself, with support from famed cinematographer Paul Persic to bring the unique vision to life in vividly haunting detail.
For everyone who has stepped into a relationship unsure of the future, Dani Kristia and her latest disco-pop track "Gambler" is a perfect mood. Listen to the song closely and listeners would find a musicality that sounds similar to Dua Lipa and Miley Cyrus, with the rhythmic sensibilities of Mark Ronson.
