There are a few places that appear and will continue to appear on this blog over and over again and Melbourne, Australia is one of those places. Melbournites seem to understand something very fundamental about writing a catchy, dreamy pop song and Eddy Dillon is no exception.
The young musician just came out with an EP entitled “Sunday” and although he admits himself that he’s still trying to “perfect the art” of recording, his songwriting skills are apparent. Dillon is taking cues from Johnny Marr when he plays his little jangly guitar riffs on songs like “Mould On My Shoulder”, he’s inheriting his sense of melody from the likes of The Drums, yet after a few listens you really start to hear a unique identity develop.
If nothing else, listen to this EP for Dillon’s sense of humor - as evidenced by the lyrics to “My Balls” :
“Just touch my balls
They’re nice and small
They’re wrinkled and shriveled
Sometimes they get fiddled
Touch my balls and I’ll bet you’ll feel nuts”
