Dino Jag’s 2020 supercharged, funk-pop release, Can’t Keep Still, was ignited by the 2020 bans on public venue dancing in Australia.
The song generated across-the-board radio play and healthy streams and was only kept from the AIR chart’s #1 position by none other than Kylie Minogue. Dino followed that up with, When the Day Comes, written during a series of online writing and production sessions with Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic, Adele, Ed Sheeran, Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney).
And now Dino has released another fun-filled funk pop gem, Shake A Leg Like Elvis. As Dino says about his new release, ‘The title of the song came from the phrase ‘you gotta shake a leg like Elvis’, something my dad would often say to me as a kid when I first started singing and playing the guitar.
Over the years that phrase stuck with me and evolved into a metaphor for ‘not holding back’. Everyone has a uniqueness to unleash, something to shake out of themself and share with others, something that liberates them. That’s what I’m plugging into with this song.’
Written and produced by Dino Jag and mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Oli Morgan, Shake A Leg Like Elvis will undoubtedly attract radio and streaming interest, just as his previous work has.
‘‘ Shake A Leg Like Elvis will no doubt go on to reaffirm Dino Jag’s position as one of the most renowned pop-rock singer-songwriters in Australia.
Dino’s songs have been featured on numerous radio networks, including SUPER RADIO NETWORK, GRANT BROADCASTERS - OZ MADE, FLOW FM NETWORK, MOOD MEDIA – IN-STORE, SRN TRIPLE G, SRN HILL FM, PLAY MPE CHARTS, TOP 100 AUSTRALIAN SONGS - ITUNES CHARTS, and AIR CHARTS.
Shake A Leg Like Elvis relies on immediate hooks, funk-pop sensibilities, and Dino’s evocative, passionate vocal style. As well as the melodic finesse, there is a bunch of well-considered production adornments, including lush background vocal layers, simmering guitar and bass work, and rhythmic changes that add depth and colour to the dynamics.
Shake A Leg Like Elvis will no doubt go on to reaffirm Dino Jag’s position as one of the most renowned pop-rock singer-songwriters in Australia.
