Dominique - It's Only You

Introducing Dominique, an up and coming poptress of the NYC scene

DOMINIQUE – It’s Only You:

I’m not quite sure if there are enough superlatives to describe the majesticness that Dominique brings to the table. Which for starters is distinguished, yet simple pop music that lacerates the soul. A combination of raw talent and a solid grasp of the fundamentals of pop shall enable her to be enamored by and woo the world with ease. Just you wait and see!

To me, It’s Only You provokes the ghost of a past lover who can’t help but to haunt you. The fragments of whom remain vivid in the mind and still jab at the heart. Dominique’s voice is an ethereal beauty that manifests itself as a collection of reminiscences.  The story may be simple, and we very well may have heard it many times before, but that could never take away from the intrinsic magnificence she brings to this tale. All of this mixed perfectly with lolling beats and an array whimsical tones to achieve wonderful results.

The truth is some people are destined for greatest, and I just happen to believe Dominique is one of them. Which means we are most definitely in store for something truly magical with the impending release of her upcoming EP Chains. No doubt a mixture of excitement and impatience shall plague me until it becomes available for auditory pleasure.

I’m overly delighted and grateful that The Sifting Pan was able to ask Dominique a few questions about her aspiring music career as a pop star. Thanks again for sharing with us!

How long ago did you decide that you wanted to jump into the crazy world of pop music?

 I used to write and perform a little in high school, but I stopped for a few years. I started back up almost a year ago.

Was there something particular that finally pushed you in this direction?

I didn’t choose the pop life, the pop life chose me.

No, but really, I always tend to write pop music whether I’m trying to or not.  Pop fascinates me. I’m obsessed with analyzing the melody lines and production of popular music every time I listen to it, and I think this affects me when I sit down to write a song.

Can you share some of your inspirations for writing It’s Only You and your upcoming Chains E.P.?

I was going through a heartbreak, obsessing over lost love. I wanted Chains to tell my story of that. 

Is there any new music out there you just can’t get enough of at the moment?

I’m really crazy about that song “Hideaway” that HANAH just put out. I also LOVE Laleh’s new EP.

Finally, if you could collaborate with any other artist on future projects who would you want that to be?

I have always really wanted to work with Charli XCX. She is such a talented songwriter and has been a huge inspiration to me. 

Thank you, once again, Dominique  for taking the time to share with The Sifting Pan!

If Dominique continues to create such stellar pop songs, a Charli XCX collaboration may very well become a reality. One that I would personally love to see come to true fruition.
