Robinson today releases the video for her live performance of ‘Don’t Say’. The track is the latest single from the kiwi pop-star and is the first track from her forthcoming EP ‘Watching You’. The powerful performance of the emotional track shows Robinson in her element, performing in a classical theatre setting.
The song was written by Robinson, together with Fred Gibson in London and was produced by Sam de Jong. Discussing the themes behind the song’s lyrics, Robinson says:
“It’s about a love that was once so strong and so bright and overtime the flame burns out – but the familiarity of that love still remains”.
Robinson played a headline set at London’s Queen of Hoxton yesterday, which was only her second performance in London and came following her debut performances at SXSW and The Great Escape festivals earlier this year.
In 2018 Robinson’s debut single ‘Nothing to Regret’ was certified platinum in her home country of New Zealand and double platinum in Australia, with over 85 million streams on Spotify alone. She received two nominations at the New Zealand Vodafone Music Awards for Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Single of the Year that year. She was also featured as one of Vevo DSCVR’s One’s to Watch 2019, as well as one of YouTube’s Artists to Watch in 2019.
