    Close Isn't Enough
  2. 2.
Following her debut single "Overrated", Nashville-based indie pop artist daena returns with the ethereal power ballad you never knew you needed.
Filled with 80s inspired, spacey synths and lush layered vocals that will truly transport you, “Close Isn’t Enough” feels like the embodiment of intergalactic sexual tension. For fans of Emily King, Prince and MUNA, this track hits the mark completely.
The full retro-inspired EP, “Electric!” is set to release this coming February.
As a queer woman, daena hopes to be a role model for other young people in the community. “It’s important to help normalize queer relationships, which is something I realized when writing Overrated” daena says. “Love is universal, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation or anything else - and it’s okay to feel that love as strongly as you do”.
Praise for "Overrated":
"Aided by addictive instrumentation zipping and fizzing with edgy indie-pop tones, daena delivers a hook-laden anthem dripping in sheepish confession, a love song so one-of-a-kind that you won’t soon forget it." - The Music Mermaid
