New Gizmo Varillas Single

  • Published in News

Following incredible radio and playlist support for his ‘Out Of The Darkness’ single (released in May), Gizmo Varillas returns with new single ‘Danza Da Sombras’. It’s the second single to be taken from his forthcoming third album. Gizmo explains “Danza de sombras means dancing shadows in Spanish. It’s a metaphor for the constant dance between light and dark, good and evil”.

“They say the eyes are the window to the soul... In Danza de Sombras I take a closer look, it's a love song to the world and our humanity. There will always be shadows that walk beside us, but the important thing is to not forget the beauty that surrounds us”.

Take a listen to the sun-drenched, dreamlike harmonies, flamenco flourishes, and soaring chorus of ‘Danza Da Sombras’ below.


Gizmo will play his first London headline show of 2019 at Camden Assembly on November 26




Gizmo Varillas Return Out Of The Darkness

  • Published in News

With the summer of 2019 finally shining its way through the windows, the time is perfect for Gizmo Varillas to announce his return with the release of his new single 'Out Of The Darkness'.  A Peter Gabriel-esque meeting of addictive rhythms and sun-kissed harmonies, 'Out Of The Darkness' is the first track to be taken from his forthcoming third album.

Having swapped his home studio (where his first two albums were created) for the legendary RAK Studios in London, Gizmo explains that “'Out Of The Darkness' was one of the first songs I wrote for the album which set the tone and theme for the rest of songs that followed.  The writing process was cathartic to me, as this was a difficult year in many ways. The title track and album subtly deals with issues like depression, anxiety, stress and mental health. Each song on the album depicts different shades of darkness and finds light therein. Ultimately it’s an album of hope and making it to the other side. It’s about transformation, from dark into light.”

Having tested new material during recent appearances at Zermatt Unplugged in Switzerland, and with Seu Jorge at the Eventim Apollo and Zaz at Shepherd’s Bush Empire, Gizmo Vanillas will play the Camden Assembly on November 26.
