The 22-year-old Seattle songwriter and producer Surf Mesa and singer/songwriter Nat Dunn bring us new hot single ‘State Of My Heart’
With Dunn’s soul-shaking vocals and racing, keyboard-fueled production from Surf, the infectious track explodes with the sense of hope and optimism that accompanies a hard-won fresh start. Released today via Astralwerks, the two artists wrote the song with Eli Teplin, Steph Jones, and Phil Scully.
Surf, who iscoming off a massive series of summer festival performances, has now passed the threshold of three billion global career streams. Dunn, front woman to the Australian duo NAATIONS and longtime collaborator of dance legends like Duke Dumont, Gorgon City and Hayden James, has also established herself as an in-demand songwriter whose collaborations include Marshmello and Anne-Marie’s 10x RIAA Platinum hit “FRIENDS” and Kygo’s 2x Platinum “Carry On.”
Surf Mesa explains: “‘State Of My Heart’ describes the urge to want someone to have intuition. ‘Don’t you know how I’m feeling? Can’t you feel the state of my heart?’”“Nat Dunn and I got in the studio and, after messing around with chords, she was humming around a bit and then under her breath she said, ‘can’t you feel the state of my heart?’ I immediately was drawn to this hook and we built the track around it!”
Nat Dunn adds: “Some songs write themselves and SOMH was one of those – much due to the perfect energetic combination in the room that day,” “‘State Of My Heart’ is a declaration of human emotion. It represents the beauty the comes from working on one’s self, and second chances.”
Surf Mesa will make his Vegas headline debut on October 9, when he takes over Wynn Nightlife for XS NIGHTSWIM. His fall tour dates include an October 21 show with Gryffin at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado.
Since making his festival debut in 2021, he’s become a festival staple. Rolling Stone said, “Surf Mesa of ‘ILY’ fame brought the fire to Lollapalooza” while Elite Daily named him as one of the rising stars who “crushed Hangout Fest.” He also played Outside Lands, Ultra, Electric Zoo, Electric Forest, Breakaway Festival and more. SPIN noted, “Platinum at 22, Surf Mesa personifies a new generation in dance music.”
