Los Angeles alternative pop maverick Dylan Kelly unveils the lyric video for his debut single “All My Friends” today.
Written and produced by the artist, “All My Friends” struts along with bright snappy guitars, a reggae rhythm, and a delightfully inebriating refrain carried by Dylan’s dynamic voice. It properly introduces the world to this singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist [guitars, bass, and keyboards!].
Coming home from a vacation in the Dominican Republic, Dylan went to the studio early one morning and wrote “All My Friends” from scratch in less than two hours. The woozy guitars, sunny production, confessional lyrics, and instantly chant able chorus “All my friends are high” simply intoxicate. Republic Records fell under the track’s spell, and Dylan landed a deal with the label.
About the song, he explains, “I have a bunch of fun friends but it’s hard to get them to go out and do anything but hang. I wrote this song about those times when you just can’t get your friends to leave the house.”
“All My Friends” shows just one side of this dynamic talent though. His music encompasses a diverse array of styles from pop and reggae to indie and alternative. “It’s representative of L.A.,” he says. “The city is such a melting pot so my music is like a melting pot of all those influences.”
Ultimately, Dylan’s own versatility will captivate anybody within earshot. “I want people to feel emotion,” he leaves off. “What else is the point of art? I hope they can relate and say, ‘Me too man. Me too!’”
