Dami Im won X Factor Australia last year and immediately made her mark with winner’s single “Alive”. It raced straight to number one in her homeland, as did her debut LP. The Korean-born diva now returns with her second official single (she recently featured on a charity song) and it’s an absolute gem.
Produced by Swedish trio Trinity and co-penned by Aussie pop singer/songwriter Hayley Aitken, “Super Love” puts an interesting female spin on the currently hot acoustic-infused synth-pop genre. The song begins with Dami sitting at her piano before it explodes into an upbeat pop moment — complete with a soaring chorus (“we’re diamonds in the rough, the stars are made of us” — pretty!) and what sounds like a fiddle.
As for the video? Well, the towering songbird walk around Sydney in a kooky super hero outfit and generally brings joy and happiness to those around her. It’s a tad corny but pretty much guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Watch up top.
Is “Super Love” good enough to break Dami internationally? She’s already a hot property in Australia and Asia.
