But more than that, ‘Dragon’ is a joyful song about rebuilding confidence and following your dreams; it’s a strong and moving track that will reveal and reward more on repeated plays. In fact, there is an energy to this song that is both infectious and beguiling. 

And while the production may seem simple, it allows Popovici’s voice to be the standout feature. Interestingly, Ioan Popovici has crafted such positive words and phrases around a classic sound that can reawaken a listener’s own suppressed feelings and memories. 

Overall, ‘Dragon’ is a track worth sitting down and listening to carefully, giving it the time to find the optimism and charm that it has in spades.
