Today, Danny Dwyer shares his latest single, “Summertime,” a hyper-pop anthem that tackles heartbreak head on. Danny explains, “It is a song from the last moments of a breakup. It’s the denial that comes right before acceptance. It’s staying up all night replaying the memories in your head and knowing you will never feel those things again. It’s calling out praying it could change but knowing that’s not what’s best for either of you. It’s also about guilt, I was thinking a lot about that poem ‘the tell tale heart’ when I made this where the guy thinks he hears the heartbeat of someone he murdered under the floorboards. I’ve experienced a lot of guilt when relationships change and I blame myself for not being able to control how I feel. This always creates a vicious cycle and I think this song is where that cycle spirals out of control.”
