Lawson Hull Shares New Song “Mexico”
March 12, 2021 BY Nettwerk
Today, Aussie singer/songwriter Lawson Hull shares wistful indie rock single “Mexico,” which was written during lockdown, out of a wish to be somewhere else amidst foiled plans to travel. Lawson says, “It’s about someone’s daydream – hoping there’s a chance with their crush. It’s about not being sure if the feelings go both ways, or if the other person even knows there’s an interest to begin with. The dream is to sweep this someone off of their feet, all the way to Mexico. The second verse imagines the fast and reckless drive to go pick this person up, as if you can’t believe it’s happening, and the bridge sends the couple down the runway.” “Mexico” is available on all digital retailers HERE.
“Mexico” is Lawson’s first new track since the release of his 2020 EP Dreaming is Easy. Comprised of six tracks rooted in folk and dream pop melodies, Dreaming is Easy culmination for Lawson, proof that he can step up and actualize his dreams. Even the EP’s artwork (below)—a childhood photo of Lawson and his sister eating ice cream in the 90s—is a reminder of its theme. Lawson comments, “It’s easy to dream when you’re a kid. You just have to make those dreams come to life when you’re older.” All but one of the EP’s six songs were recorded with Sydney-based producer Billy Otto (Dreams, Eyes Like Fire) who was able to provide a cohesive sonic palette that speaks to Lawson’s atmospheric guitar playing and his love of the outdoors.
