PREMIERE: Dylan Joel Heads To The Californian Desert In The Visual For Soulful Newie ‘Run To The River’Written by Sam Murphy on February 16, 2018
Dylan Joel has debuted a new song ‘Run To The River’ with a video filmed in the Californian desert.
Joel, who is known for mixing rap for singing has ditched the rap this time in favour of a soulful, acoustic-driven style.
The video is also a new vibe for him, taking him to a town called Ocotillo in San Diego.
“The only things in the town of Ocotillo were a gas station, a saloon and a man who turns recycled junk in to UFO’s…as you do,” Joel said about the town.
This is Joel’s first new music in two years and you’re instantly going to recognise that he’s grown quite a bit from his debut album Authentic Lemonade.
“The story of the song was inspired by the idea of flipping a blues song,” Joel said about the song.
“Hence the theme of the ‘river’ being something holy or life giving and the reference of a devil whispering. The theme came from some of the typical struggles we face as a society and the importance of questioning what things help us escape them.”
