Dulio – “Little Yellow Silver”

Maryland based-Dulio formulates an opus for lost souls in his latest track “Little Yellow Silver.” The brainchild of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mike Toohey, Dulio’s new single conjures a likeness to an edgier Jack Antonoff-as-Bleachers. It masters radiating synths, moody vocals, and protagonistic guitar lines that give a nod to Toohey’s pop-punk past. The track lyrically…
