If you are listening to artists like Jeremy Zucker, Alexander 23, and Aidan Bissett, then you probably know about DWLLRS. The indie pop duo has been making the rounds lately, receiving praise from artists like Justin Bieber and Chelsea Cutler, coverage in publications like Atwood Magazine and Variance Magazine, and the coveted Top 10 trending slots on TikTok with their 2022 hit “Blue Spirits.” They also just completed a run on Claire Rosinkranz’s Just Because Tour, which had them sharing their music with fans across North America. With plenty going on and much more ahead, there are times when DWLLRS need a minute to process and reflect, which comes through on their latest single “Driving.”
We are along for the ride on “Driving,” as DWLLRS perfectly capture the sensation of cruising around town. The atmospheric guitar riffs, driving beats, and lively vocals make up the perfect soundtrack for exploring and taking in the surrounding sights from the front seat, their textures inducing a moment of clarity. We hear reflections in lines like, “All I want, all I need, all I dream, I need you next to me” and “What do I want? What do I need? What do I dream? I need you next to me.” You can check it out below.
About the track, DWLLRS explain,
“‘Driving’ is about finding passion in moments of solitude. It represents our tendency to romanticize loneliness, sadness, and overthinking. This song is about how something as simple as driving can propel dreamers like us into a state of copacetic nostalgia.”
You can listen to “Driving” on platforms like Apple Music, Spotify, and SoundCloud.
