“Drag You Down” - Joe Dolman | Review


The first thing I thought when listening to ‘Drag You Down’ was “Wow, this is going to blow up on the radio”.


Joe Dolman brings you a beautiful love song with so much emotion and grace. This song is such an easy listen that you will just leave it on repeat. Dolman’s vocals are absolutely stunning on this track and the way there are gorgeous elements of layering for harmonies just elevates the track to a whole other level. Fair warning, for those to like to drive at night with moody music, this one is that night drive heartbreak anthem that you’ve been craving and it will make you shed a tear.


Honestly I can’t wait to see where this british pop star goes. Similar artists for me would be HUNTAR and Dean Lewis, with Lewis making waves on the radio I can really see Dolman fitting in that same niche alongside him, reminding us of the power of a heartfelt love song.


With 2 independently released EP’s under his belt landing him top 10 in the UK and US iTunes charts, Dolman has been growing from strength to strength with each show he plays, picking up BBC Radio 1 plays from the likes of Huw Stephens, airplay on BBC Introducing and with his double sided single “Something Beautiful” play-listed by Apple Music and Spotify.

Lyrics:

Drag You Down

I know what you’re trying to do, you can’t rescue me

I know that’s what you’re trying to do, why don’t you see?

If I knew what I was going to, have to go through

I’d say to you, just get out while you can

cos I don’t have a back up plan

I don’t want to drag you down, cos once you’re in I can’t get you out

and i don’t want to drag you down

I don’t want to lose you in the fire, don’t know how to save you when it gets higher

and i don’t want to drag you down

How long is it gonna take?

You’re not the only one who wants to know how long it’s gonna take

Well I can show you love,

If I knew how to separate, I’d do what it takes

I’d make mistakes, and i’d still keep you safe

I just want to keep you safe

I don’t want to drag you down, cos once you’re in I can’t get you out

and i don’t want to drag you down

I don’t want to lose you in the fire, don’t know how to save you when it gets higher

and i don’t want to drag you down

No I don’t want to drag you down

No I don’t want to drag you down

Cos I can’t give you what you want from me,

I’m selfishly, stuck between

What I want and what you need

I’m not what you need

No I don’t want to drag you down

Nothing’s gonna save us now, one way track can’t turn around

nothing’s gonna save us now

I know, there’s no one to blame but there’s no other way so,

I’ll lead the way out

I don’t want to drag you down.
