creates a highly visual experience for fans of her music, through her use of
highly artistic, and mindfully produced videos. They drip with symbolism and
mysterious imagery, in a very genuine and organic way, that pulls the listener

discovered a fellow traveler in Daniel Schlett, the owner of the Williamsburg,
Brooklyn recording studio, Strange Weather. The pair dug through stacks of
Denitia’s demos, selecting the choice cuts that would eventually yield the
Ceilings EP. They made the tracks lush with bright vibrant synths and
electronic elements, catchy beats, and Denitia’s hypnotic, smoky voice. If Ceilings is only the beginning, she is
off to one hell of a start.
Upon Styles released the Ceilings EP on July 21st, 2017, in
unlimited, digital form.
