Dillon “<3core'' Single Out Now
With her first single, “<3core”, the Berlin-based artist has created an oscillating tension field - giving the first insight into her fourth album, ’’6abotage’’. Written and produced with Alexis Troy, Dillon describes the album as “a love letter, a cry for help and a consequence all in one”, with the hypnotically painful first single, “<3core”, tying up reluctant impulses and emotions, attracting and repelling like rotating magnets. Reduced to the core, it sounds abyssal and sobering when Dillon outlines an entangled situation, where, perhaps only leaving may help, with the escalating line “if you hurt, till you hurt me, till I hurt you, till you want me, till you love me <3core... “. Troy’s skillfully consummate production embraces Dillon and her struggle with this emotional chaos, which momentarily shifts into spoken word, in sombre warmth, and simultaneously, in stifling coldness. “<3core” reveals Dillon’s unsparing openness, a relentless inner conflict, and the powerful combination of pain/despair and relief/conciliation.
