Son of a Kid - Burning Blood (Lonelier)



This was the first Dyno song I ever heard.  I knew that it was going to be super impactful and it has.  This artist and this song helped solidify my love for the Swedish music industry.  This man single-handedly planted a seed that I have been cultivating for years.  This song is one of the most emotional songs I've ever had the pleasure to hear.  Alx has taken a great song and created something more from it.  That's my idea of reinvention.  It took something that already had a solid footing and gave it even more depth.  His voice is so clear and so strong.  I want you to listen to this track and then listen to the original.  They are so different because of how the production and arrangement are done.  There is such an ache in this song that his new title is so unintentionally appropriate. Son of a Kid is my favorite Swedish band.  There are those that come close but when they sound like this, they are everything.
