The newest single from DYLYN evolves past the electro-pop sounds of her previous releases and explores the darker side of her creativity.
I love to see “Call Me What You Want” continue to play with the grittier sound DYLYN dug into with her most recent single “Something to Lose”. This track is one for miss moving on for sure. DYLYN doesn’t play games, this song is one of sass and self-worth, and knowing that regardless of what she is called, she can handle it and she is powerful.
The “don’t mess with me” attitude of this female pop-rocker proves she is a force to be reckoned with. Her music video is exactly what I would picture in my head if I were to have my own rock out session to this track. I know you all know what I’m talking about when you make your own epic music video in your head...if you are unfamiliar to that experience, turn up this track and rock out.
DYLYN is Gwendolyn Lewis. With a father of British descent, a mother from the Chinese Mainland, and growing up on the outskirts of Toronto on a musical diet of Led Zeppelin and Blondie, DYLYN released her 80’s synth-rock infused debut EP “Sauvignon In a Kimono” in 2018 featuring the breakout track “Secret”. Since its release, “Secret” has quietly amassed an impressive YouTube profile – over 100 million streams – due in large part to the Gacha Life anime community with its 10 million active users adopting the song as its anthem of family betrayal.
