Dizzy dropped a new single on June 30 titled 'Roman Candles' along with its accompanying official music video.

The stunning music video directed by Michael Pugacewicz sees Dizzy lead vocalist Katie Munshaw singing and dancing solo in several locations over the dreamy indie-pop ballad. 'Roman Candles' is the Canadian band's third single released in 2020. It follows 'Sunflower', which released in March and April's release, 'The Magician'. All three songs will feature on the group's upcoming sophomore album, 'The Sun And Her Scorch'. Dizzy's LP is due to be out on July 31 via Pod/Inertia Music and it follows their 2018 debut studio album, 'Baby Teeth'. Their debut LP earned the band 'Alternative album of the year' at Juno Awards last year and with Dizzy's three singles for 2020, 'The Sun And Her Scorch' looks like a promising album so far.

According to NME, Munshaw said in a press release that unlike 'Baby Teeth', their upcoming record is "about the qualities about myself that I’m not very proud of". She said, "I wanted to be completely honest about the things nobody ever wants to admit, like being jealous of your friends or pushing away the people who love you. So instead of being about romantic heartbreak, it’s really about self-heartbreak." Speaking on 'Roman Candles', the frontwoman said the song is about "how insecure I feel being someone who's pursued music as a job". She explained, "I have a real fear I’ll never own a home or be able to support a family because of the decision I’ve made, so of course that’s scary." Munshaw added, "I think I've quit the band a dozen times since we started and then wind up taking it back an hour later because I know it’s just fear talking."

'The Sun And Her Scorch’ was recorded between Quebec's Mechanicland Studio and the singer's mother’s basement while the album is entirely self-produced and was mixed by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Florence + The Machine). When Dizzy announced the new record on Twitter, they said, "You can preorder it on Vinyl and CD now, alongside some sweet bundle packs with merch we’ve been working on for the past while."
