Melbourne talent Dylan Joel has released his first new music in more than two years; introducing ‘Run To The River’.
The performer enjoyed the support of our national broadcaster the first time around (2015’s debut LP ‘Authentic Lemonade’) and there’s every indication that he’ll pique their interest again this time around.
“The story of the song was inspired by the idea of flipping a blues song,” Dylan explains. “Hence the theme of the ‘river’ being something holy or life giving and the reference of a devil whispering. The theme came from some of the typical struggles we face as a society and the importance of questioning what things help us escape them.”
The track is the first taste of more new music due throughout 2018.
His team at Warner reveals that Dylan’s been writing and recording the material both here at home and in his travels to the US, where the music video for ‘Run To The River’ was shot.
“We shot it in a desert one hour outside of San Diego, California in a town called Ocotillo,” he says. “The only things in the town of Ocotillo were a gas station, a saloon and a man who turns recycled junk in to UFOs… as you do.”
‘Run To The River’ is out now.
