Dylan Dunn recently released “Seasick On The Ground,” a wonderfully salty song to add to your end-of-summer playlist. The single is Dunn’s first release of 2022; at the end of 2021, he independently released his debut EP, Blue Like You, which featured edgy pop-rock songs like “Such A Freak” and “Lemonade Eyes,” and softer acoustic tracks such as “Beautiful Disaster.” His music is quite emotional, and his musical style could be compared to that of Olivia Rodrigo or Conan Gray. However, he has also said that he is inspired by artists like Queen and Electric Light Orchestra, and it shows: several of his songs are almost operatic in the way they rise and fall.
On “Seasick On The Ground,” Dunn says farewell to old friends that he can no longer relate to. He sings, “I’ve been feeling / Seasick on the ground / Hear your voices / I can’t stand the sound.” He compares conversations with his former friends to a go-kart ride – they are constantly hitting a wall. The songwriter is able to intertwine these lyrics with an upbeat melody, ultimately creating “this dizzy feeling of disconnection,” which “pulls the whole thing together.”
