To mark the release of her debut album, Yesterday is Gone, Dana Gavanski is heading out on a UK tour stopping in Manchester on 26 August 2021.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a rescheduled date. Original tickets are valid.
Yesterday Is Gone is a co-production between Dana, Toronto-based musician Sam Gleason and Mike Lindsay of Tunng and LUMP. On the title track, Dana Gavanski sings ‘I’m learning how to say goodbye / to let you go and face the tide / to wrap my feelings in a song’. To wrap her feelings in a song: this is the task Dana has dedicated herself to with this record. By turns break-up album, project of curiosity and, as Dana puts it, ‘a reckoning with myself’, Yesterday Is Gone is her attempt to ‘learn to say what I feel and feel what I say’ – an album of longing and devotion to longing, and of the uncertainty that arises from learning about oneself, of pushing boundaries, falling hard and getting back up.
