Dillon Francis & Evie Irie Dare to “Be Somebody” with Bold New Collab [LISTEN]

Recommended Posts

Dillon Francis and Evie Irie combine their talents for a fresh, new collaboration, “Be Somebody.”

Dillon serves up a bright, simmering soundscape punctuated by the track’s massive melody, assisted by distorted guitar and thick bass. All the while, Australian singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Evie Irie flutters over the production with her confessional verses.

The lyrics win us over with an unapologetic tone: And everybody’s fake as fuck / And I’m way too drunk, to pretend I’m happy … Me and my friends, we gonna pool our money / We gonna get a droptop, we gonna be somebody

The meaning behind the song is particularly in line with Dillon’s own personal experience. He explains of the release: “‘Be Somebody’ is an ode to all the people that told me I was just a class clown and wasn’t gonna make it.”

Evie adds: “Be Somebody is Dillon’s story, and I’m so lucky to help share it. When he was telling me the inspiration behind his idea, I totally related to it. Just a small kid with big dreams in a school ground.”

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
