‘Strawberry Blonde Snip’
‘Strawberry Blonde Snip’ is the new track from one to watch Dylan Cartlidge premiering over on The FADER.
This track follows on from his impressive debut ‘Love Spoons’ and once again highlights Dylan’s unique and varied vocal delivery. ‘Strawberry Blonde Snip’ is the first track Dylan ever wrote and is a wonky and infectious ode to gaining independence from an unsure relationship. Reminiscent of Beck and Outkast but with a distinctly British slant akin to Jamie T or Gorillaz, Dylan changes from rapping to singing throughout, showcasing his versatility and genre-spanning identity.
Currently working with James Dring (Jamie T, Gorillaz) and Rodaidh McDonald (Sampha, The XX) for future releases, 22-year-old Dylan is a multi-talented singer, rapper and instrumentalist independently writing music that sounds more like it was created on the east side of Atlanta rather than in a small town near Middlesbrough. Dylan grew up in Stoke but at fourteen due to troubles at home, he moved to Redcar – a small, predominantly white working class town known only for its mothballed Steel Works and race course. With nothing going on there, Dylan sought solace in making music.
