Press Release

30.07.2018 - Norwegian rock band Samana Rising returns with their third single release, Dizzy.

‘’Got to keep an eye on this band, Samana Rising are future stars in the making’’ – Nova Radio, Newcastle UK

Norwegian rock band Samana Rising returns with their third single release, Dizzy on August 10th, 2018. The single will be released on all the major streaming services via indie label Distrokid and will also be released as a music video on Samana Rising’s Facebook and Youtube channel.

Dizzy has been a longtime fan favorite during Samana Rising’s live shows. The song was composed by Tom Henning Flomark & Leif Johan Flornes - and is a homage to the riff based heavy blues-rock of the late 60’s and 70’s with fuzz guitars and fiery vocals. The lyrics written by vocalist Hanne Sivertsen, are about depression and how to recover from it. Dizzy was recorded at SkamBra Studio with Jørgen Manke as producer and technical engineer. Mixing and mastering was also done by Jørgen at SkamBra Studio.

The cover is made by Los Angeles designer, photographer & Samana Rising enthusiast - Alexander AD.
The music video was recorded at an abandoned warehouse in the heart of Stavanger. This gives the video a rough visual image that resonates with the overall theme of the song. Dizzy was directed and co-produced by filmmaker Eirik Hauge Andreassen, who also directed Samana Rising’s prior music video Without Your Love.

On the day of the release, Samana Rising will play an outdoor festival in Stavanger, Norway – called ‘’Fjåge I Vågen’’. The band will also be playing some selected dates in Norway during the fall, while they continue to record their forthcoming EP release. More live dates will be announced.

Dizzy will be available for streaming on all major streaming services like Spotify, Tidal and Apple Music. The song will also be available for purchase at iTunes & Amazon Music.
