In a press statement, Dillon described ‘Alive and Kicking’ as “a love song drenched in a bit of self-doubt”.
“The overall message is one of learning to love yourself and navigating the relationships around you,” he says of his new EP. “When I listen back to the songs together, it really points to a time in my life where I was figuring out who I am whilst navigating relationships, grief and love.
“This is a self-exploratory look at who I am and how I am being shaped.”
‘Don’t Change For The World’ is Dillon’s second EP, following on from his 2019 debut ‘Everything Melts’. The Perth-based artist will launching the EP virtually on release day (October 1), performing on his Instagram account alongside Asha Jeffries, Jack Davies, Bugs frontman Connor Brooker and Sly Withers.
Dillon will also launch the EP at North Perth venue The Rosemount Hotel on October 8, headlining a bill that also features Supathick, Julia Wallace and Anna Schneider.
