Dawn Golden has announced his debut LP ‘Still Life’ will be released 7th July via Downtown Records / Mad Decent. Preceding ‘Still Life’ will be the release of lead single and Zane Lowe’s Next Hype, ‘All I Want’, coming out 30th June.
Dawn Golden is the solo project from Dexter Tortoriello of Houses, who after the release of his EP ‘Blow’ in 2011 has been tirelessly working on his full length. Recorded at the Mad Decent studios in Los Angeles, ‘Still Life’ is built around exploring the doleful voids of addiction, love and death - themes all extremely relevant to Tororiello's beginnings.
First single ‘All I Want’ swings between Technicolor dreams and depressing quotidian details, gaining its stark emotional perspective though dense sonic textures and creative vocal editing.
This aesthetic holds true in the video for ‘All I Want’ - a deeply sad and imaginative visual that finds its hero exploring stark landscapes while not fully connecting with his present reality.
