Sex, drugs and modern pop, all through the lens of longing. Those are the themes for Riverside, California’s Dandelion, the solo project fronted by Nathan Oaks.
The new single “Ghost Rider” is lifted from the two song EP Fine Now, which was also released today. It takes Dandelion’s mantra of “Forever Up To No Good” very seriously, with debauchery-fueled lyrics referencing partying, sex, excess, OnlyFans accounts and “stealing every bitches sweater this year.”
That was exactly the play, according to Oaks. “Ghost Rider was one of the first tracks that I wrote for this project and was an early milestone in the making of DANDELION that shows off the general direction of the sound that I’m evolving into,” says Oaks. “I chose this song to debut with because it shows off clever lyricism, a different sound, and catchy melodies, all to get the listeners attention and keep them interested in what is next for this project.“
