Scottish newcomer Dylan Fraser has announced details of his debut EP The Storm, set for release on October 23rd via Atlantic Records. He also dropped a new track “I Do These Things For Me” in conjunction with the announcement. The song finds Dylan dismantling online behaviors in search for authenticity. Listen to it now below!
Last week, it was announced that “Vipers” will feature on the all-new FIFA 21 Official Soundtrack, alongside artists like Dua Lipa and Diplo. This follows strong praise across press, streaming, and radio support from BBC Radio 1, Australia’s Triple J, and Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe – with “Face Tattoo” premiering via a ‘World First.’
The new single and Fraser’s looming EP seamlessly extend on from these previous releases. Over five tracks, Fraser’s cross-genre dexterity shimmers as he seamlessly shifts through propulsive electronics, high-energy guitar and hypnotic beats.
Inviting us into his own world, Dylan’s music functions around themes of introspection, determination and self-validation as he unpacks his journey from his small town of Bathgate, Scotland to his newfound reality as an artist with the world at his feet, trying make sense of the people and situations he’s faced along the way.
Fraser says – “I like to think of The Storm as my headspace. It’s full of crazy ups and downs and this is me trying to piece it all together and make sense of the world”.
