Rising pop artist Lydia Halloway has just unveiled her debut single “Dancing to You” with a premiere on CelebMix. The single, which is featured on Halloway’s debut EP “Never Meant to Hurt You” (out this Spring), is an infectious and vibey dance-pop gem that positions Halloway at the top of her game. CelebMix called the track “off-the-chain superb,” and “full of pulsating dance energy.”
Fans can listen to “Dancing to You” on Soundcloud here. The single is available everywhere this Friday, March 1st.
“[‘Dancing to You’] is about two things at once. It’s about wanting someone’s attention. But it’s also about music itself,” says Halloway. “If you listen to the chorus, it’s really about how sharing music with someone — dancing with them — can feel like the closest you can ever get. This song is about trying to hold on to that moment.”
Lydia Halloway is gearing up to bring an infectious new sound to the top-40 landscape. Drawing parallels to artists like Charlotte Lawrence and Madison Beer, her debut EP “Never Meant to Hurt You” is a collection of expertly crafted pop songs that are both premonitively current and rich enough to bear repeated listen thanks to their cutting, insightful lyrics. Paired with her brightly-lit, velvet vocal delivery, the EP packs a powerful punch.
“I remember ’22’ by Taylor Swift came on and I just started sobbing, knowing that turning 22 probably wouldn’t be that way at all for me,” says Halloway about the EP’s inspiration. “And that’s part of why I wanted to make this EP — it’s full of this music that you can really bounce to. I wanted to capture that feeling for myself.”
