In the early-2000s, “Swing, Swing” by The All-American Rejects became a popular Emo anthem. Today, Gregory Dillon is really channeling some 80s Synthpop vibes with a modern cover. This new jam was dropped during Valentine’s week as a tribute to his Punk-Rock influences. Nevertheless, its original loud and guitar-driven style has been given a special edit that sounds more like a ballad. Certainly, the artist makes a difference when applying exquisite hypnotic synths. In other words, his own reinvention still guarantees favorable radio plays.
Following the release of his smash debut EP, ‘Sad Magic,’ Gregory Dillon also adopts a cinematic approach to the cover of “Swing Swing.” If crying to Emo music was the norm in your teens, then this cover doesn’t differ much from that purpose. Indeed, through his latest contemporary electronic pop songs, he reflects on his past, while the art form of storytelling enhances the meaning of his intimate lyrics. Not to mention, his fantastic soulful vocals never fail to give you goosebumps. Believe it or not, he has surpassed 1M streams on Spotify and the remix EP of ‘Sad Magic’ is coming out this Spring, stay tuned on his socials for all upcoming updates.
