Last month we became aware of Los Angeles based, indie/electro pop artist, Disco Shrine. And her latest single, ‘Up In The Air’, is still very much on our playlist. Narrating the struggle her parents faced when immigrating to America from Iran, it is infectious. It’s also being considered the perfect anthem for the current situation in America.

Jessica Delijani, the voice behind Disco Shrine said, This song is about my parents immigrating to America from Iran after escaping the Iranian revolution in the 70’s. ‘Up in the Air’ paints a picture of them literally up in the air on their plane leaving the past behind. They are looking towards their new future. It’s also symbolic of their whole lives suddenly being up in the air, uncertain, and not knowing what to expect”. 

True to her tongue-in-cheek moniker, Disco Shrine makes music that plays with the contrast between high energy electronic beats and sensual melodies. She thrives off of being an outlet for listeners to be carefree, accepted, and liberated through dance music. 

After a few years of experimenting with “bedroom pop” at home, she finally made her LA debut as Disco Shrine in 2015 and released her first pop EP, ‘Soft Fur’. And if she’s not starting the party on stage, she’s helping to throw it off stage; Jessica Delijani hasn’t always been in the spotlight, but started by working as a behind the scenes event producer. This love for bringing the community together through music is reflected in her own high energy synth-pop sound.
