Dylan Fraser has released his dynamic new single, “It Took A Lot To Get To This“, the second song to be released from his upcoming EP, 2030 Revolution. The song is accompanied by a performance visualizer, which can be seen now below.
“It Took A Lot To Get To This is a song about how you can put a lot of work and time to get yourself into a good headspace but little things can bring up old insecurities and send you spiralling again,” says Dylan of the track. “I wrote this song at a time in my life that was super busy – I was travelling down to London a lot from my small town in Scotland, and it was so exciting but also exhausting, and I felt like when I was home, I didn’t even have the energy to speak to my family, and that just sucked; I felt so mentally drained. I’ve worked so hard to get to this place in my life where I’m doing the job I love but now, I’m so mentally drained that I can’t even enjoy this experience with the people I love? It’s crazy to me how much our brains can send us right back to a place that we worked so hard to get out of at a flick of a switch. This song is really about growth, and I guess could be taken positively too – it’s more just me dissecting my own emotions during what was a confusing time in my life.”
