Having previously dropped two contrasting, yet intriguing works of dream-pop experimentation from his upcoming album, Peripheral Drift Illusion, San Francisco based multi-instrumentalist, John Dylan, has unleashed his latest single "(I Can Feel Myself) Getting Over It" which revels in the joy that can be found post-depression.


Opening with hints of glittery synth, the track drops into Dylan’s guitar line that has become a staple of his sound. Droplet phasers and ethereal reverb enter the chorus with Dylan’s dreamlike vocals and melodic hook. The track comes in at a dreamy 4:59 with the full-length EP available on Bandcamp.


Choosing to address past mental health issues throughout his music, Dylan notes that ‘‘(I Can Feel Myself) Getting Over It)’ is ‘a song I wrote about the moment that happens, not just when you’re past the low point of depression, where you can function again, but past that. Imagine the feeling you have when you actually feel you can open up to the world again – it’s like the world is regaining its colours and flavours and smells again, and it’s flowing through you and back out into other people.’
Having previously contributed to genre-defying band Terrene (with a record produced by Phil Ek who has worked with The Shins, Fleet Foxes, Built to Spill), Dylan brings his ingenious songwriting as he ventures on as a solo act. Taking inspiration from a wide range of sources including Nirvana to The Beatles, his eclectic style is reminiscent of Tame Impala and The Flaming Lips. For a trip into dreamland and self-discovery, listen to John Dylan’s ‘I Can Feel Myself) Getting Over It” below:
