DYLYN is a fairly new project from singer/songwriter Gwendolyn Lewis who has been making music for a bit and carries a loyal social following (upwards of 300k). After a chance meeting with Colin Munroe (Sky Ferreira, Drake, Kendrick Lamar) in LA, Gwendolyn had a sort of revelation and decided she didn’t want to end up a pop puppet. Enter DYLYN – 80s synths, sultry vocals, and a dose of rock and roll. Her debut single, “Mimosa”, saw streaming numbers in the hundreds of thousands.
DYLYN’s thoughts on the song:
My generation is much more in tune with our emotions and who we are than past generations,” says DYLYN of the cut. “Some choose to take a traditional path in life, settle down, get married and have kids, which is cool. But, I always felt as though life was sketched out a little different for me. The ‘American Dream’ isn’t the same as it used to be. There is no age limit, gender, or rules that apply to what we have to do in life. ‘American Nightmare’ is about setting your own path and playing by your own rules. I don’t know what the future holds for me, but for now I’m still figuring out who I am and exploring this crazy path I’m on.
