SCOTTISH DARK-POP MUSICIAN NAMED TO SPOTIFY’S RADAR PROGRAM SHOWCASING EMERGING ARTISTS TO WATCH
Rising alt/pop Scottish artist Dylan Fraser has unveiled his third EP, 2030 Revolution, out now on Asylum/Atlantic. The EP includes previously-released standout tracks ‘Vampire’ feat. Alaska Reid, ‘It Took A Lot To Get To This’ and ‘Apartment Complex On The Eastside,’ the latter of which was co-written by Samia.
Dylan also shares the official music video for title track, ‘2030 Revolution’ (watch here).
2030 Revolution was produced by Dylan’s long-time collaborator Jonah Summerfield and Ivor Novello-nominated Rob Milton (Holly Humberstone, Easy Life), and finds the young Scot documenting his all-too-familiar fear of finding purpose, offering a fresh lens on the uncertainties we all face throughout modern life. The EP flows through synth-laden and industrial soundscapes, showcasing Dylan’s knack for bridging genres with ease, a focal point of his work thus far and one of the many reasons he’s brought in a swarm of acclaim since his breakthrough last year.
Over the course of the summer, Dylan – who recently collaborated in the studio with PC Music’s A.G. Cook and Rodaidh McDonald – has been making his name on the live circuit, playing numerous UK festivals, including Barn on the Farm, where Dylan shared the stage with Holly Humberstone, JP Saxe, Maisie Peters, and more for a one-off performance.
In July, Dylan appeared on Jack Saunders’ BBC Radio 1 show, where he reimagined Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)’ and played one of 2030 Revolution’s singles, ‘It Took A Lot To Get To This.’ In October, he’ll play Neighbourhood Festival in Manchester, UK and Live at Leeds.
