DENA’s music is like a hybrid made up of gritty elements from M.I.A. and Grimes, with her own unique spin. The uber smooth track is about “the feeling of constantly missing someone amidst the frantic rhythm of the city”. Yet, DENA maintains her street credibility by keeping a cool front.
The baseline accompanied by smeared chimes and lines such as “Bad timing this is what we’ve got / Bunch of missed calls in the middle of the night” induce involuntary head-bobbing and is bound to get you longing for DENA’s other half to get a better sense of time.
Bad Timing is available to download on iTunes
