A social media slam-dunk who prides herself on authenticity. A multi-talented drummer, Tae Kwon Do fighter, vocalist and guitarist whose skills are all shared online. There are many things about rising internet sensation DYNAMYTE which seemingly contradict each other at first sight. But what remains clear, is that this is the kind of artist who takes contradictions in her stride, who is unafraid of being wholly and totally herself.
A critical look at the ways in which social media can influence the younger generations to present themselves as someone they aren’t, ‘Show Me You’s sassy and intimate authenticity immediately draws you into the personality that is Dynamyte. Her degree in social psychology at Brown University left Dynamyte fascinated by the ways in which people work, and serves as the catalyst for much of her songwriting – ‘Show Me You’ included.
“I use my analyses to make sense of my experiences when I’m writing, while also targeting what kind of content I feel the world needs.” she says, “I always want to write songs that will impact people.”
It’s unsurprising that Dynamyte counts Amy Winehouse and Janis Joplin amongst her vocalist inspirations – that raspy low tone permeates the entire record and production, leaving her unmistakable voice in the centre of the mix. Her combination of soulful Amy Winehouse-influenced vocals and pointed, fearlessly honest Lily Allen-esque songwriting style is creating an edgy, seductive niche all its own.
