Every time I see there’s a new Gregory Dillon track in my submissions list, I get this huge smile on my face. He is one of the artists I have fallen in love with this year and this is why:
It’s this kind of talent that blows my mind every single time.
Speaking about the track Gregory said it was written at the early stages of his last and most recent relationship.
“It’s hard to forget the first date waiting for him at the end of the 72nd st platform. I was irrationally sweaty and nervous but I remember his smile behind the doors of the train as it came to a stop. as he stepped off the train I was kind of lost in an innocent sweaty bliss. I remember being a bit irrationally nervous. I know personally whenever something is starting off/going good I overthink. I’d do anything to look into the future to see where something is going/If I was taking all the right steps. At the same time, that’s honestly the best part and I think I wrote this song to remind myself/remember/confirm that the present moment is the best moment.
“I think that we should head to the rooftop, clear as the night and skyscraper shadows.”
This is the most important line to me in the song. I associate a lot of imagery and to me the stairs of my rooftop always led to a paradise above the confusion of the city/confusion below. They are a warm metaphor for fate and paradise. [I associate a lot of nostalgia in the song to the staircase leading up to my rooftop which for me was our little paradise above the city.] Sunsets up there were heavenly.
I hope anyone listening to this just feels a breath of ease and summer vibes. The next month we are going to really saturate in to a pastel of orange sunsets.”
