PREMIERE: Pablo Dylan Says Goodbye to the Past on “The Finest Somersault”
The singer-songwriter charges ahead with ramshackle feel-good folk rock. Yes, he's related.
Pablo Dylan is all about the future.
Despite his last name, Dylan is not here to ride on past glories. Case in point: “The Finest Somersault,” the title track from his new EP that debuts tomorrow (February 8).
The rollicking folk-rock track pulses with youthful energy, with ramshackle guitars and slurred vocals cutting through the maelstrom.
“It’s a proclamation that the old world is dead and that a new world shall soon replace it. And I figured I would address that old world one last time,” young Dylan explained via email. “For far too long our culture has been defined by such triviality, and for the EP I wanted to make a group of songs that stood to reality rather than the notion of what we want to be or do.”
The song arrives with an appropriately lo-fi video that captures the angst and the energy of the music.
