Dana Gavanski is a Canadian singer-songwriter residing in London.

“On her third album, LATE SLAP, the Serbian-Canadian musician warbles, coos, and ululates like an art deco songbird. Gliding across meticulously constructed orchestral synth-pop with emotional intensity regulated at a slow simmer, Gavanski combines classic songcraft with a mishmash of hyper-modern motifs, tempering the tragic clown with a sense of stillness.” —Aquarium Drunkard

“Dana comes off like a descendant of the time-tested, tried-and-true songwriters of the pop canon.” —Brooklyn Vegan

LATE SLAP is teeming with life, in all its joy, heaviness, and whimsy... beautiful, uncanny layers of voice, a menagerie of synth tones and guitar jangles.” —Post-Trash


Following the release of 2022’s When It Comes, Dana Gavanski returns with her third album LATE SLAP, due for release April 05, 2024 via Full Time Hobby. Streaming now is the album opener “How To Feel Uncomfortable” which is matched perfectly with a disturbing and visually stunning video directed by Ella Margolin.
