Channeling similar pop and R&B stylings to names like Tinashe and Robyn, DYLN (pronounced Dylan) unveils debut single “Better Things”.
“Better Things” is a sharp kiss-off to a self-centred lover - think 2017’s answer to Shania Twain’s “That Don’t Impress Me Much”. It’s a light-hearted way to address a very real problem, and a stunning introduction to the Brooklyn-based artist’s richly textured electro-pop. Drawing inspiration from artists from the pop sphere and beyond - she cites Kid Cudi as a major influence - “Better Things” sees DYLN carving a comfortable niche for herself in preparation for future releases.
“If you think that the whole world revolves around you / I got better things to do,” DYLN asserts, over the track’s slick electronic production. It’s these words that provide the song’s major hook; one you’ll be struggling to get out of your head for hours after listening.
