The Australian-born Berlin-based musician Jackson Dyer takes great inspiration from the oceans of his native land for his songwriting, a fact enforced by the video for his song ‘Paper Lanterns’, which was filmed by the Moroccan coast.

Dyer has had a strong presence on the Irish music scene in the last few years.  The Berlin-based songwriter supported Hozier in the past as well as making an appearance at Way Of The West festival recently and he will be joining Talos on their European tour this month after he supported them in the Cork Opera House last year.

Dyer’s first LP Inlet comes out this year. He has so far dropped three singles from his new album including ‘Blue‘, ‘CBSKY‘ and now ‘Paper Lanterns’.

Of ‘Paper Lanterns’, Dyer says the song is “centred around the notion of moving on and focusing on the positivity and hope that can be found in change. For the majority of the writing and producing period, I was stationed in a small, coastal town on the east coast of Australia. I‘d often drive to the next major town and I think that the open expanses had a big effect on the song’s energy. Turning up my favourite music, with the windows down and rolling past the landscape was something that I relished and I think a little bit of that euphoria and freedom is expressed.”

Jackson Dyer will release his new single ‘Paper Lanterns’ on the 10th May with his debut album ‘Inlet’ arriving later in the year. He will also be embarking on an extensive European tour next month in support of Talos. Dates of which can be found below.
