Way back when, bluegrass singer Alison Krauss was asked a question pertaining to the level of vulnerability she exhibits in her music. To this day, her answer holds an astounding level of relevance within the industry.
“I think that people respond to honesty in music, so I only choose songs that are the truth for me,” she explained.
Honesty is not just a word. It’s an action. It’s the ability to lay your thoughts and feelings out there and ask for permission later. Throughout his newest release, “Suppress,” 20-year-old independent singer-songwriter Dylan Sinclair exhibited all of that and more. Produced by Grammy-nominated talent Jordon Manswell, the three-minute track offers an emotive, yet airy feeling as Sinclair reflects about all the things he has to do better in order for his relationship to work.
“A weak man will make a girl feel insecure,” Sinclair said about the meaning behind his new song.
“This song is an acknowledgement of where I fall short in my relationship and where I aim to do better.”
Sinclair’s honesty and addictive melodies make “Suppress” one of his most distinctive releases in recent memory. Check out the song’s visualizer below.
