DNIE Teams Up With Arkane Skye To Share Debut Single “Hourglass”

Posted by on April 16, 2021

Teaming up with singer and songwriter Arkane Skye, promising new talent DNIE has just released his debut single with “Hourglass,” combining alternative rock and hip-hop in a stunning way. DNIE grew up in a small town, and would quickly fall in love with music throughout his teenage years, as he saw it as a perfect escape from the world and anything that was bothersome. Realizing that the only way to express himself and his feelings was through music, DNIE decided to take the leap and start to produce, something that led to the birth “Hourglass,” and many more genre-bending singles to come.

“Hourglass” is me coming to terms with the past being something that I will keep in my heart forever, while having the future in my hands,” says DNIE. “A song with Rock, Alternative Rock, and Hip-Hop influences in the production as well as in the vocal performance, “Hourglass” is a blast from the past with a modern twist to it. The story-driven vocals and lyrics, written by myself and Arkane Skye, really portray how I was feeling for the longest time, emotions that many people can relate to. “Hourglass” is a song about time flashing in front of our eyes, and all of the memories that we have created slowly becoming more distant as we move on. As much as that can take a toll on many of us and make us wish we could turn back time to much easier and simpler times, we realize that it isn’t possible, and that life has to move on.”

“There are always going to be ups and downs in life, which was of course the case for me growing up, but the good memories definitely outweigh the bad. I feel like the more time passes, I don’t feel that same level of happiness anymore, as I face problems in life that have triggered depression and anxiety. I didn’t want this song to be just about the sadness I’ve experienced, but to also act as a reminder that there are better days ahead. There are people who enter your life and make you forget about your struggles, helping you create new memories and focus on moving forward. No matter how much it might hurt at times, you start enjoying life and looking forward to the future.”
