With summer more or less upon us there's no time like the present when it comes to putting together your playlists to soundtrack lazy afternoons in the sun. If that's you, keep in mind the new single from Australian singer-songwriter Jackson Dyer, "Paper Lanterns", the third single to be taken from his upcoming debut album, Inlet, due later this year. A dreamy, melodious continuation of the sort of indie pop heard on recent single "CBSKY", the new single comes with a charming set of visuals directed by Dyer himself that see him relaxing in his serene surroundings as he sings his song tale of optimism and personal growth.
"'Paper Lanterns' is a song centred around the notion of moving on and focusing on the positivity and hope that can be found in change. For the majority of the writing and producing period, I was stationed in a small, coastal town on the east coast of Australia. I'd often drive to the next major town and I think that the open expanses had a big effect on the song's energy. Turning up my favourite music, with the windows down and rolling past the landscape was something that I relished and I think a little bit of that euphoria and freedom is expressed in 'Paper Lanterns'."
