Toronto native and indie pop/rock artist Dylyn is pleased to announce the release of her first single, “Wolf,” from her forthcoming album Sauvignon And A Kimono, set for release on February 23rd. Dylyn is the new musical project of singer/songwriter Gwendolyn Lewis, which emerged onto the Canadian music scene last year. With each passing release she seems to connect with a growing global audience.
Before starting a solo career as a pop artist, Lewis was fronting a rock band. Since launching Dylyn she has released the singles, “American Nightmare,” “Mimosa” and “Secret,” a hard hitting song about infidelity. In an interview for Reviewfix.com the young artist shared that growing up she always turned to music for a comforting escape and a safe place, which is something that clearly can be heard within the lyrics of “Secret.” (Listen to and read her lyrics at https://genius.com/Dylyn-secret-lyrics) The song tells a very deeply personal and dark story.
Dylyn says of her new single, “Wolf,” “This song was the aftermath of a shitty breakup and my family divide. It was as if the universe was telling me to rebel and revert to autopilot. Shutting my feelings off for a little while was a much easier way to live – misery loves a hot guy.
This new track along with my other recent releases are all authentically me. Writing them was like a therapy session dedicated to the last three years of my life. I wanted to incorporate 80s synth, punk garage style drums to match my deep vocals – mixing the old with the new. It helped pinpoint exactly how I was feeling. Through the breakups, family breakups, the ups and downs – I was able to release songs chronologically synced to the stages of my emotions. The new track “Wolf” is a direct reflection of how I felt about men post-breakup. You become reckless, rebellious and ultimately don’t give a shit about other people’s feelings.”
The single has a strong EDM beat, and is infectious and catchy. Dylyn’s voice is well controlled, yet fiery and passionate. The lyrics will get stuck in your head, and you’ll be singing the refrain of “I cry wolf” in your head all day long. It’s a song you’ll want to put on repeat all day long. She reminds me a bit of k.flay, and those who know me know how much I love k.flay!
Be on the lookout for Sauvignon And A Kimono on February 23; I know I will be!
