Brisbane-based indie-rock quartet Dopamine recently dropped their new track, Turn Your Heart. To celebrate the release, the band have shared with MILKY their five favourite jackets worn by other artists.


“This song was pieced together quite quickly. I was messing around with old 70's drum samples, and I came across this one that stuck out to me. So, I started jamming out on guitar over the drum loop, and out of nowhere, I started playing the lead guitar line. The rest of the song just fell into place after that. We tracked the whole thing live, so what you hear on the recording is just us four, in the same room, playing the song together. It's the first time we did it this way, and I think it sounds a lot more exciting because of it. The lyrics are about a situation I was going through at the time, and I was in a relationship that wasn't working out. When I showed it to the band, I wasn't too sure what they'd think because the lyrics were so specific to my life at that point that I thought it'd be a bit too personal. They ended up loving it, though!” frontman Fin Miller shares of the track.
