Maltese singer-songwriter Dylan De Bono combines his love for pop and electronic music on playful track “I Can’t Say No,” founded on upbeat synths and dark, sultry vibes which have become his signature as he delves into being unable to resist seduction despite being aware of the red flags.
Rooted in an addictive chorus that explodes with sensual, dance-club energy, the electro-pop track manages to bring out a trademark vulnerability as it takes us through De Bono’s rendezvous with a dancer at a strip-club, capturing his yearning for a connection fresh from a break-up.
On “I Can’t Say No,” the rising musician balances embracing impulsivity and your wild side with feelings of weakness in the face of temptation in perfect tandem, framing the beautiful yet self-destructive nature of love. Paying ode to the connection he had with the Moscow-born dancer currently living in Cancun, a music video for the track will feature the dancer, in a personal and clever full circle moment.
Having burst onto the scene amidst the pandemic, Dylan De Bono found a place in people’s hearts and playlists for his ability to deliver transportive soundscapes, held up by equal amounts of hard-hitting realism and charming story-telling. Now with this latest offering bringing hyper-romanticism along with down-to-earth admissions, he leaves us wanting more of his vulnerable yet fun-filled productions.
