With the release of “Cigarette” (Apr 13, 2023) Parden signals the rollout of her 3rd full length album, the effort of 3 recording sessions over 3 years with Micah Tawlks at Peptalk Studios in Nashville. Taking inspiration from The War on Drugs’ “Future Weather”, Kurt Vile’s “Smoke Ring For My Halo”, and Feist’s “The Reminder”, years of influence finally channel into one moody, late-night, windows-down anthem.
Deni is the electronic pop solo project of Deni Hlavinka (of The Western Den). Decisive, impactful, yet soft around the edges, Deni’s music blurs the line between dark synth-driven electronica and tender alternative pop - creating a sound that is emphatic yet vulnerable. Lyrically, her music explores the spaces between doubt, introspective and the roaring explosion of self-actualization. Deni is layered, immediate and visceral - the result of over a decade of experience as a multi-instrumentalist, singer, artist and producer. Deni’s music is both the tangled chaos of feeling in real-time — and the unraveling.
