Cathartic and heartfelt, Dom Malin’s latest single comes to life as a beautiful, long exhale.

It’s the heavy sigh of a weathered soul – worn, but not weary. We all have those in our lives who give us the strength to keep going when times get tough, and in “Hurricane,” the English singer/songwriter pays tribute to that love and support. He reminds us that we’re better together; that no matter how hard the winds blow, they won’t knock you down when you’ve got love in your veins.

Hurricane - Dom Malin
Hurricane – Dom Malin
You took my body, you took my soul
You left me nothing but ashes to hold
But in the ruins that lay before me
I found a reason to finally breath
Out of destruction a different view
A clear idea on the path to choose
But I won’t lie I bled for you
A way to process the fights that you lose

Atwood Magazine is proud to be premiering “Hurricane,” a song of human connection and staying power. Releasing April 12, 2024 via Malin Records, Malin’s latest single arrives in the wake of this past February’s dynamic “Surface” and a March feature on Canadian singer/songwriter Genesis Ritchot’s song “Nothing That I Fear.”

Spirited and smoldering, “Hurricane” is a passionate eruption from Malin’s innermost depths. The Midlands-based singer/songwriter reflects on rising from the metaphorical rubble with another’s help; of rebuilding from turmoil and emotional ruins, and finding “a reason to finally breath.” His resolve is renewed; “out of destruction, a different view,” he declares over moody piano chords and plaintive, wailing slide guitars.

And it’s all because he has someone to rely on; someone who believes in him, and who’s there to help him back up whenever he falls down. “‘Hurricane’ champions the courage to overcome hardships, and finding solace in acknowledging the past as part of your story,” Malin tells Atwood Magazine. “However, in the company of someone you love and trust, you can weather any storm.”

Malin reaches a tender climax in the song’s chorus, the fire within pouring out of him in spades:

But this hurricane of the past it blows
But as long as I’ve got you here beside me to hold
I won’t lose my house, I won’t lose my home
Because you’re my silver
My silver and gold

Diving deeper, the singer/songwriter explains how the inspirations for this intimate and vulnerable song came from a long-held interest in nature.

“Nature is my muse, where I thrive and feel most at home,” Malin shares. “Through my music, I harness its elements to navigate the chaos and internalise the depth of my feelings and emotions about various topics and experiences.”

“I grew up fascinated by nature and would often explore its wonders. From camping in Wales to recent adventures in the Pacific Northwest, these serene landscapes have become the foundation of my musical expression. Whether I’m writing about the complexities of love and loss or grappling with life’s challenges, I find that this synergy enhances the narrative, bringing it to life.”

“When writing and recording ‘Hurricane,’ I made deliberate choices in sounds and production to reflect these sentiments. For example, the slide guitar in the outro symbolises the tropical disturbance before an imminent hurricane, while the lyrics acknowledge the destruction often left behind. Yet, they also offer the perspective that sometimes we need to rebuild and weather the storm to come back stronger and feel renewed.”

And out the darkness, a burning flame
A light so warm I knew night from day
Who was this figure calling my name
For they brought colour where grey remained
Out of the chaos, I found my way
To live with anger and yesterday’s rage
But I won’t lie I felt afraid
The scars you left me would still remain

A fiery indie folk storm full of achingly raw emotion, “Hurricane” is a gently dramatic reminder that, no matter how tough things get, we’re never alone in what we’re going through. Whether your support comes from your partner, your family, your friends, or elsewhere, our roots run deep, and it’s okay to turn to them for stability and sustenance in our times of trouble, turbulence, and need. Whoever your silver and gold may be, they’re there for you in good times and bad.

Stream “Hurricane” exclusively on Atwood Magazine and get caught up in Dom Malin’s beautiful, billowing whirlwind of warmth.

But this hurricane of the past it blows
But as long as I’ve got you here beside me to hold
I won’t lose my house, I won’t lose my home
Because you’re my silver
My silver and gold
