Australian singer Dioni’s sweet song “Flirting with Reality” is a light, bright number that brings to mind the likes of Django Reinhardt, Stéphane Grappelli, and the Triplets of Belleville soundtrack. On the surface. But the song is actually a rumination on recent crises in Greece, and the video includes a tribute to late “riot dog” Louikanikos.
It’s an infecting little tune filled with willful optimism.
