Jason Dawson tries to navigate a landscape of Lonely Hearts in his new single — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
The title track from the singer-songwriter’s brand-new EP, Lonely Hearts shares Dawson’s frank assessment of life in the contemporary online dating scene — set against a stylish and sophisticated synth-pop backdrop that is nothing short of irresistibly seductive.
“When I first starting writing this song, I knew I wanted to name the EP after it,” Dawson says. “It’s real and honest AF about gay relationships.”
For Dawson, the Lonely Hearts EP is just the latest milestone in an eventful few years. The budding artist rose to local fame after an impromptu performance with one of his idols, Bebe Rexha. Then he fell in love and got his heart broken into a million pieces, all while dealing with the pandemic and gearing up to release his debut single.
Fortunately for Dawson, he knows how to turn any experience into a song. His first introduction into the music world was the single Anchor. An upbeat electro-pop song that makes you want to dance while getting your heart broken, it garnered the attention of music blogs and listeners alike, racking up thousands of streams in its first week. He followed up with Alone, a song penned about his own experiences dealing with toxic behaviours in a relationship. Now, with his new EP, Dawson is ready to take the world by storm and show just what you can do with a lonely heart.
