Opening with a catchy guitar chords and simple percussion, Dylan Menzie’s latest single “I Wanna Know” is a crowd pleasing tune; the P.E.I native uses an impressive vocal range to ask the big questions about love and the universe. To go along with the new single, Menzie has shared the accompanying music video and announced his fall tour (dates below) with fellow islanders Racoon Bandit.
Retro film effects compliment jump cuts of Menzie in a hair salon with about a dozen different hair styles in the new video, while he sings and calmly staring at the camera. “I Wanna Know” finds a familiar stance within the East Coast/ P.E.I. indie rock scene; brightly welcoming guitar melodies, charming vocal lines, and an overall appealing energy finds Menzie within the same ballpark as Paper Lions, Racoon Bandit, and Two Hours Traffic.
“I Wanna Know” is off Menzie’s debut album Heather Avenue, which is available through his website.
