Premiere: Josef Scott Reveals New Single, ‘Summer Dopamine’

Today, Auckland-born artist Josef Scott will reveal his new single, Summer Dopamine, and we’re bringing you the very first spin of the beachside jam.

Summer Dopamine is one of those tracks that just oozes with vibe. Beaming with a moonlight tang, this one will instantly have you swaying that head from side to side and dreaming of a moonlight beach on a warm summer night.

Summer dopamine was born out of my first winter in Boston. Come April I’d almost forgotten what it was like to feel warm outside, and as I found myself here for the foreseeable future I began reminiscing on my fondest memories from the homeland, New Zealand. I wanted to create a song that encapsulates the euphoria we feel for summer and fleeting romances that come and go.The cover art is an image I took on my way back to my apartment. Winter was coming to an end with spring just around the corner. I could feel a source of light and warmth casting above my head, as I looked up, I could see the sun beginning to pour against the top of the building with sea gulls airborne as the wind was keeping them afloat. The anticipation for summer kicked in.

My aim for this next chapter of music was to explore and find a new sound that I resonated with that also continued the momentum from my Sophomore EP– Josef Scott

Summer Dopamine is an ideal addition to Josef’s already stacked catalogue and highlights his ability to put down tracks that will resonate with all music lovers.
