Vanalika Shan - Midnight

18-year-old Vanalika brightens the world with her new single ‘Midnight’ 

DALLAS, TX – Indie pop singer/songwriter and pianist Vanalika Shan’s open-hearted sound is the result of years immersing herself in diverse cultures around the globe. At only 18 years old, the Indian-born artist has studied music in the U.S., Australia, and India, drawing freely from American Pop, Indian Classical, and musical theater to create an irresistible sound all her own.  

That original sound is put on full display on her new single, “Midnight” which is slated to go wide across all streaming platforms on Oct. 16. The laid-back vibe of the song takes full advantage of a robust array of Synth sounds for a contemporary twist on Indie Pop. The slow organs open the song and create a mellow, ambient vibe that sets the stage for Vanalika’s ethereal vocals. As her voice begins to sour, she welcomes listeners into a nice groove that’ll have them bopping their heads while smiling and reminiscing about that someone special. 

“The idea of it came from a kind of Cinderella theme,” Vanalika said. “It goes around the concept of time being limited. Time is a driving force in any relationship – romantic or friendship or whatever. So I wanted to play on that idea with the nuances from a Cinderella fairytale.” 

The debut single from this fast-rising star is a follow-up to her wildly successful cover mashup “Blinding Lights and Physical” which is currently available across all streaming platforms. Fully embracing the Synth Pop sound, the song takes two chart-topping retro tunes and mashes them into something that’s equal parts throwback and modern, and perfect to showcase this talented musicians naturally ethereal vocals. 

Having just graduated from high school, Vanalika said she’s taking advantage of a gap year to pursue music as a career. Though she started as a singer when she was only 4 years old and has performed in multiple places over the years, it hasn’t been until recently that she started fully dedicating herself to a career in music. While growing up, her father traveled to places all over the world, often moving his family along the way. As such, Vanalika said she’s gotten a very global education about people and cultures and the ways in which art can tie people together. 

“Traveling has been a big part of my life, from meeting new people to seeing different locations,” she said. “Music ties the bridges in between. I’ve experienced different kinds of music, but at the end of the day, it’s still my kind of music that I’m creating. The way I like to approach my music is to take my own story and add a little twist. Music isn’t about just adding a little bit of an edge or technicality to something, but more of a driving force. I want to move an audience through the music as if they’re part of the story. That’s one of my favorite attributes of music – not just listening to a song but how the combination of sound and lyrics can drive an audience together. At the end of the day, I hope my music makes people feel good when they listen to it. Vanalika means sunflower, and I try to embody that in myself and my music. A sunflower is bright and calming, and that’s the effect I want to bring to the world with my music. I want to brighten the world with my music, one sunflower at a time.”
