PREMIERE: Filo Vals Shares a Stunning Vision of Rome in New Single ‘Dance’

Songwriting has been a pillar in the life of Filo Vals since he first picked up a guitar, aged just six years old. Influenced by the likes of Paolo Nutini, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley and Jack Johnson, a love with music developed almost instantly, and a few years later he took the step to learn the piano. As soon as he turned eighteen, he moved straight to London to pursue a career in music.

The first steps came in performing small open mic nights around the U.K and Los Angeles, honing his craft. He’s an artist that’s paid his dues, learning his trade at grass-roots level. When things started to develop further, Filo made a point to organise shows back in his native Italy as well.

Filo Vals released his first single Mr World in April 2017 to unprecedented critical acclaim. The track was selected from BBC introducing artist section in Devon, before being chosen by Ford Italy to be the soundtrack for the new Ford Fiesta. The track was then featured as the soundtrack for the Italian movie “Chi M’ha Visto” last October. As a result, the single increased Vals notoriety and  led to appearances on important live performances such as the Battiti Live Festival in front of 15k people, broadcasted on National TV. Mr.World ultimately managed to stay on the Top 10 of Spotify Italy Viral Charts for a number of weeks.

The new single ‘Dance’ arrives in a timely manner as we approach the summer months. Sonically, the new single sees Filo employ a larger accompaniment with percussion and brass taking center stage. There’s no deficiency of funk and sleazy groove, with a party spirit coursing through the entire track. It’s the musical anthropomorphism of Filo’s outlook on life, as an artist who’s here to promote positivity, freedom and losing your inhibitions.

“This song is about not taking yourself too seriously. Just dance and be free. Life and day-to-day stress in 2018 can be difficult to see past, so it’s massively important to take a step back and forget what other people think. Go with the flow and enjoy yourself!”

Creativity is the path to a greater freedom in Filo’s case. As well as writing stunning, feel-good music, Filo also self-directs his own cinematic & visually striking music videos, with ‘Dance’ being his latest creation. It’s a celebration of life and music that’s as refreshing as it is unusual in today’s world. Perfect for Monday morning blues, or any day for that matter.
