Gregory Dillon understands sad pop euphoria. He was primed for it in his suburban boyhood by secretly following aerobic workout tapes in his basement and skidding asfalt alone on his green Razor scooter. In an attempt to find confidence in adulthood, Gregory moved to Brooklyn where he began constructing a pop fantasy that re-explores the confusing landscape that shaped his youth.
Plastic Ferrari is Gregory’s new single. It’s a real bop.
The song features unique melodies, outstanding vocals, and powerful hooks.
Lyrically, Gregory delivers. His writing skills are impressive.
Beneath the picture-perfect Ken Doll fantasy of Gregory’s Plastic Ferrari lies a sad irony.
Plastic Ferrari unboxes the (closeted) life of a male doll, and the struggle that hides behind his plastic mold. Though written from the perspective of a play-pretend world, Gregory seems to breach a reality queer kids know all too well.
The video captures the spirit of the song. It was directed by Joe Fusco and Gregory.
Dillon has so much talent. Plastic Ferrari deserves 5 stars.
