As Danelle Sandoval gears up for the release of her forthcoming EP, “For Love”, the sometimes LA, sometimes Toronto-based artist returns with the second single titled Say No.
With help from French Braids, Say No slinks and ripples with a laidback ambiance that’s moody yet rings into pop territory. Inspired by internal conflicts about a relationship and the lockjawed grip it seized with, Sandoval explores this personal battle with silky silver vocals.
Sandoval further detailed the single saying:
“Say No” was written in LA with producer French Braids. I wrote it during a time when I couldn’t let go of a relationship I was recklessly reliant on. I knew that I needed to move on from it, but I didn’t know how to and really didn’t want to. I just kept going back to it. This song helped me confront my emotions and made me realize how consumed I was with loving someone. While writing it out, I allowed myself to be the most vulnerable I’ve ever been and in return, I gained a self-awareness toward my feelings that I didn’t have before.”
