Evelyn – “I’m A Dog”


A heartfelt track from Evelyn, “I’m A Dog” melds introspective folk and soaring pop twinkling with consuming results. The track marks the first single from the artist’s upcoming full-length album, Someday We Will Eat A Feast of Light, out on July 26th. “I’m a dog, waiting in the cold for you,” the vocals lament, reflective of the track’s thematic approach — “a heart-swelling love song about attachment theory; a Cancer Moon abandonment-wound ballad sponsored by Big Feelings(™).” Wordless vocal melodics and effervescent keys provide a satiating conclusion to this standout success from Evelyn, presently based in the Hudson Valley, NY after growing up in California.

Per the artist:

“The song explores a series of dissonances: the way present reality can be eclipsed by past experience; the way love can feel so sweeping and hopeful while also feeling so mortifyingly vulnerable; the way even the most secure relationship doesn’t cure a predisposition for loneliness—especially if you spend all your time in your own head instead of seeing the connection and care right in front of you.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
