“But life is short / And I don’t care for most of it / Because you’re all that I want.” These are the lines that walk you into the chorus of Dawn Golden‘s heartbreaking single “All I Want.” The track is a slow-burner that begins with nothing but keys and Dexter Tortoriello’s voice, but all that swells into a cascading, percussion-heavy breakdown that still gives us chills every time we listen. It’s a hell of a payoff.
The track has a beautiful video to match thanks to one of our favorite directors, Tyler T. Williams. It’s a sci-fi tale of love and dementia that, despite sounding a bit over the top, fits the song perfectly. Watch it above.
“All I Want” appears on Dawn Golden’s Still Life, out now via Mad Decent.
