New York indie-pop singer/songwriter and producer Dylan Emmet has returned with a heartfelt new single “How I Know.” The song follows his recent features on Spotify’s New Music Friday in Sweden, and Fresh Finds Pop playlists, as well as multiple songs reaching the top 10 on the Hype Machine Popular Chart.
After finding out he had a two year old daughter he never knew about, Dylan began releasing a string of personal and self-revelatory songs documenting his journey, beginning with leaving Los Angeles to become an insta-dad in New York overnight. Currently living with his daughter back in upstate New York, Dylan has continued to successfully write and produce for multiple artists on both coasts by utilizing video chat and taking occasional month long trips to LA to write.
“How I Know” floats between minimal indie vibes and a pop banger. Dreamy piano and wavy guitars ripple through Dylan’s flowy melodies in the verses. The track simmers and swirls on a big bed of bass, exploding into a chorus that hits you right in the feels. Dylan explains the inspiration behind the track:
“Although it ended up becoming a love song, The original chorus idea for “How I Know” was inspired by my daughter. The second I met her, I knew that I loved her in a way that I had never loved anyone else before. It was truly unconditional. Now I realize that I want that in a romantic relationship one day too. I started imagining a crazy night out with the love of my life and the rest was history. Well, future history…or…something like that.”
