For friends Jessica Delijani and Tommy Nickerson, broken hearts spells music collaboration. Cue Disco Shrine, the dream pop neo-disco project that has flowered from heartache’s soil. The LA-based duo recently supported IRR favorite’s Figs Vision residency at the Bootleg Theater in December and have been picking up steam with their single “Shy.” It’s no surprise that Passion Pit and Chela are inspirations but Nickerson cites a bad party as his influence, “There’s nothing better than leaving a shitty party after having a few drinks and taking it out on the laptop.” “Drive” is sensual and undoubtedly what you’re blasting on repeat as you drive away from that bad party shouting sayonara to a defeated romance. With shimmering synths and echoing guitars, Delijani describes “Drive” as “being in a really toxic relationship and learning to finally let go.”
Disco Shrine has an EP slated for release in March featuring “Shy” and “Drive.” But first, they’ll be releasing a music video on January 25th, directed by Andrew Butte.
