Dylan Joshua has returned with his newest offering ‘can’t stay’. Not one to be penned into strict genres of hip-hop or RnB, Dylan’s art could be defined at V&B – vibes and blues. The track creates the perfect balance of cool and dreamy vibes that maintains a spellbinding stream of consciousness that is effortlessly and melodically performed. With a weightless air and consistent flow that catches the attention, ‘can’t stay’ takes a look at the deep feelings within a relationship and his honest lyrics face up to the unfavourable parts of love and emotion. As the narrative evolves, Dylan paints a vivid picture in the mind of the listener that provides for a lyrical journey, led by pulsing beats and his stylised, distorted vocals.
Speaking of his new release, Dylan Joshua said: “can’t stay is the honest truth of me realizing the ending of a relationship and my thoughts on it. A lot of the music I make I just make for myself, I don’t write with the intention to put it out, so with my music, listeners are really just getting the true stream of thought of what I’m dealing with. Hopefully it opens up conversations for people to talk more about the issues they’re going through, unlike I did. I know for me personally, especially when things aren’t working out in a relationship it takes a toll because it’s like fighting a secret war. You don’t wanna show anyone there’s trouble in paradise so you kind of bottle it up. Thankfully I have music as an outlet but to the people out there who don’t it’s definitely a struggle I empathize with. It can be very draining”
