New Zealand’s electronic dance pop fast-riser, Jon Lemmon, has returned with a follow up to his infectious debut single ‘It’s Gonna Be Alright’.
After the success of his radiantly positive debut single ‘It’s Gonna Be Alright’, his sophomore release has been hotly anticipated. Sharing similar levels of optimism, ‘Something True’, is an explosive synth-pop driven dance-pop track, sharing one simple message: "If it's something true... then I know we'll make it through".
Born in California, Jon ended in up Wellington at the age of 19 and quickly found his place in the vibrant underground New Zealand music scene. He refined his sound playing festivals in the middle of the lush New Zealand forests, creating music that reflected the land and the scene he found himself in.
"I wrote ‘Something True' in response to the uncertainty I think a lot of us are feeling when we look at the world right now. It can be disheartening, but I really believe in the political power of positivity. When we feel a sense of hope for the future, we're more likely to go out and create real change in the world,” he said.
The song emerged during Jon's 30-songs-in-30-days project, where he challenged himself to write, record and upload a song to the public each day for a month.
With features on 26 influential playlists, Something True has picked up over 3.3 million playlist followers in the three days since its release (Instrumental).
