The future is scary right now. We have no idea what’s going to happen next. Nothing is certain and we’re getting more panicked about how in the next 10 years we could be homeless, financially struggling or even heading to extinction. It’s nothing short of terrifying and no one understands this more than the young Scottish musician Dylan Fraser. The dark pop musician has been documenting his struggles with the future through his sonic world for some time now, starting with his debut back in 2020, but today he goes into a haunting territory that will connect with hundred upon thousands of people struggling, not only in the UK, but across the globe.
His stripped back electronic production mixed with a looping drum forms the perfect backdrop for his pristine vocal in 2030 Revolution. You sit back and let the melodies take the world off your shoulder as Fraser croons insightful, cathartic lyrics about what the uncertainties we’re all currently facing. No matter what you’re going through, he’s created a place of solace for us to feel content in, letting out our frustrations for a few moments before we scream out in anguish about the situation at hand. This song is the comforting hand placed on your should that tells you that you’re not alone in this.
