Dorin’s debut single, Lonely Heart, has just been shared with the world, reshaping the heartbreak anthem. Having received love and fans from her TikTok platform for posting covers of songs, her vocals are quickly becoming a signature sound loved by many. Her first single release in advance of her debut EP, My Way, scheduled for release on April 19th, represents and teases a promising future.
The track is as much a break-up song as it is about the process of realisation and empowerment that follows the end of a relationship. Walking the line between holding on and letting go, Dorin translates the struggle and the pull between the hurt and the victory of moving on into her song. Her lyrical storytelling is equally raw and relatable, set against a backdrop of tuned percussion and a lulling guitar string. Alongside the single’s release, the accompanying music video finds Dorin singing candidly into a vintage dial-up telephone as a heart-shaped balloon is positioned front and centre. As the first single in anticipation of her debut album My Way, this marks not only the beginning of Dorin’s musical journey, but is a powerful reminder that change is not always a bad thing.
Dorin Hirvi herself is embracing this change, relocating to Los Angeles following her appearance on The Voice at only 17 years old. Garnering a collective 35 million views on TikTok from her covers of All I Want by Olivia Rodrigo, Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, and Take Me To Church by Hozier, her powerful voice has already earned her a lot of love. As Lonely Heart marks the start of Dorin finding her own sound, we look forward to what comes next.
