How to Write a Pop Song

"If you think too hard, you will get it wrong; you've got to stay nice and stupid if you want to write a pop song." With this premise, Dylan Galvin, a talented singer and songwriter, emerges from the vibrant streets of Los Angeles, California, to captivate audiences worldwide with his inexhaustible talent and impressive musical flair, while he delivers a crucial message about the reality of being an independent musician in this 'artificial' industry.

His latest studio release, "How to Write a Pop Song," precisely reflects the challenges underground artists face daily—the external pressure that many of us grapple with, often forcing us to abandon our musical dreams just because we don't 'fit in' with the standards. Dylan fearlessly tackles this theme with incredible courage, not only through his music but also by employing a very particular lyrical composition technique. He invites us to complete a 'checklist' to achieve success with a little dose of sarcasm, challenging the current music industry and its elitist role encouraging us to explore the artistic beauty of authenticity.
Officially released on January 19, 2024, "How to Write a Pop Song" marks his fourth studio release within his masterful discography. After an apparently 'inactive' period, during which "In The Blood" (released in 2022) gained prominence as one of his standout tracks, Dylan was far from closing the curtain. Instead, he was preparing this great surprise for all of us, as "How to Write a Pop Song" is undoubtedly one of his most ambitious projects to date.

Departing from the acoustic essence of his previous releases, Dylan has embraced a more daring auditory experience this time, constantly flirting with both rock and pop music simultaneously in an organic way. He breaks conventions with palpable originality and a distinctive auditory imprint, evident in energetic rhythms, harmonious vocal melodies, and his guitar proficiency.

The result is a refreshing sound with the highest quality production, showcasing not only his artistic development over the years but also highlighting his versatility in approaching new genres. Proving that true authenticity lies within us and is not defined by which genre you like to play.
