Olivia Wik is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Not too long ago, she released a delightful pop tune, entitled, “Let’s Dance,” written by Wik and produced by ‘Towers’ (Brad Simons and Brandon Unis).
Olivia Wik – “Let’s Dance” lyric video
“Push me up against the wall like you did in that hotel. Look in my eyes and kiss me harder, got me under your spell. Grabbing me, touching you; all the things I would do. Got your hands on my soul in my hair. Ripping off, tearing down, all our clothes hit the ground. Got your hands on my soul in my hair.” – lyrics
‘Let’s Dance’ finds Olivia Wik singing about building intimacy and unleashing intense electricity with that special someone. The steamy tune contains ear-pleasing vocals and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Lake Street Dive, Ingrid Michaelson, and Sara Bareilles. Furthermore, “Let’s Dance” possesses bubbly bass and horn-laden instrumentation bursting with contemporary and retro-pop elements. Also, “Let’s Dance” builds on Olivia Wik’s previous releases as a solo artist including “Over and Over” and “When I Was Drunk.”
“Can’t seem to get you off my mind, can’t seem to get you off my skin. I’ll bite my tongue to keep your name from slipping between my lips.”
“This was a rare moment where the song came to me fully-formed in my head. I knew what it had to sound like, what I wanted to say, and how it had to be said. ‘Let’s Dance’ is all about having a connection so intense that when you’re finally allowed to have an intimate moment with someone, it feels like full electricity. This song lives in the heat of that moment with someone.” – Olivia Wik explained
Olivia Wik has a catalog of over 250 original songs. Her writing has already led to sync placements on the likes of CBC, PBS, Hockey Night in Canada, Lifetime, and YTV; and releases from Canadian artists like Krissy Feniak, Rebecca Lappa, Steven Sware, Connor James, Lisa Nicole, and Olivia Rose. Also, Wik has written with songwriters as far away as Sweden, Finland, Japan, England, and Barbados.
A few weeks ago, Wik gained international awareness for co-writing “See You Again,” which was recorded by Ovi Jacobsen and Paula Seling. The song was selected as the Romanian submission to the New European Songbook, a co-production of the European Broadcast Union and Eurovision.
“Let’s dance like we never got to do it.”
“I want people to sing it, dance to it, and use it as a not-so-subtle way to nudge their crushes and say, ‘I want you.’” – Olivia Wik stated
With “Let’s Dance,” Olivia Wik is continuing to follow her dual path as an artist and songwriter; and she is using this single to showcase the best of both of her passions. Another single, “Write Me In It,” is also in the works for release later this year. In the meantime, Wik hopes that audiences will be inspired by the hot and heavy vibes of “Let’s Dance” to let the sparks fly with someone special.
