FeminIndie: Dana Likvornik
The moment I heard, Dana Likvornik’s single, “Music,” as we were going through submissions for FeminIndie, I knew we had to include her in this feature. The first word that comes to mind is groovy. You can just picture yourself driving down the highway with the windows down, bopping your head with your hand flowing through the breeze. “Music” is definitely one of those songs you have to keep in regular rotation because it’s the indie equivalent to Pharrell’s “Happy.”
This Berklee School of Music graduate, who is originally from Tel Aviv, Israel, encompasses a mixture of her musical influences in her sound. It’s like Dana took a dash of each artist she admires, blended them together with her own stylings, and created a sound worth hearing. Her vocals have a soulful, R&B vibe that flows smoothly with the music on each track of her 2012 release, Swan.
