Baby it’s a golden summer loving being stuck to you I felt paper thin I know that I knew A big fat crush knowing that I’m stuck here with you Sipping a soda pop Holding hands on the rooftop You said let’s go then took off into the air I’m up, it’s late and you’re fast asleep Clueless that we can’t keep Holographic wing Iridescent spring Look into my eyes and scream I want to feel everything Holographic wing Iridescent spring Look into my eyes and scream I want to feel everything Baby it’s a golden summer loving being stuck to you Delicate and swift I flutter soaring in metallic blue Hover over sun-soaked water multiplying in your eyes Gliding through the wind I felt that we were dragonflies I want to feel everything I can’t deny that we having a vanity but I think I should keep my distance don’t want to watch you fly away I want to love you every season seeing through this summer haze Holographic wing Iridescent spring Look into my eyes and scream I want to feel everything Holographic wing Iridescent spring Look into my eyes and scream I want to feel everything Baby it’s a golden summer loving being stuck to you Delicate and swift I flutter soaring in metallic blue Hover over sun-soaked water multiplying in your eyes Gliding through the wind I felt that we were dragonflies I want to feel everything I want to feel everything I want to feel everything Breathing in the humidity Chasing you while you’re chasing me I want to feel everything And they say dragonflies don’t sting Delicate and swift I flutter soaring in metallic blue Hover over sun-soaked water multiplying in your eyes Gliding through the wind I felt that we were dragonflies

about

Dragonflies marks a continuing collaboration between Broken Spear and Sluurpee, two pop musicians who met as classmates in New York. The track fuses resonant shoegaze guitars and twinkly synth plucks as the backdrop for punchy drums, slowing down hyperpop conventions to slam home emo-earnest vocal hooks. The lyrics alternate between wistful and urgent, filtering a story of summer romance through a story of two dragonflies. Having previously worked together on Broken Spear’s album “Truth Pieces” (Business Casual, 2019), Dragonflies marks the two musicians’ first remote collaboration, with audio stems traded over a year while Broken Spear was living in Kona, Hawaii. To build the visual universe of the song, the two tapped the render-magic of Galen Tipton for the artwork, and then met in in upstate New York to shoot a music video, where they were greeted by waterfall vapor, mirrors, and crystalline forest moss captured in 4K and MiniDV.
