With a punchy, alternative production building towards a danceable electro-pop chorus, and layered beneath uplifting and empowering lyrics, Indigenous Super Stars’ “Best Emerging Artist”, Robin Cisek, teams up with JUNO award-winning producers in the creation of her new anthemic single, “Hey Disaster”.
The summer anthem for all those feeling like they just can’t fit in, or are a black sheep in a white flock, “Hey Disaster” is that reminder to be proud of yourself, not matter where you are in life or seem to be a bit of a disaster, there’s power in who you are and walking to the beat of your own drum. Like the hero of your own game, the single is accompanied by a visually stunning 8-bit lyric video and video game, where your own strengths and going against the grain leads to triumph over your own monsters.
