EVERYTHING about Jackson Dunn screams sun, surf and Gold Coast fun.

The Triple J featured artist, originally from the Gold Coast, has brought out a new track - Lemonade.

The alternative artist credits his Filipino-born mother for his introduction to the music world.

His latest song was inspired by Jackson's start to 2013, where consistent Queensland rain forced him to make lemonade out of some seriously bad fortune.

After journeying north working as a house painter, Jackson returned to bring some of his new music to life.

With a head-strong beat, consistent cruisy resonance and mesmerising strumming, the track is what you could easily relate to a typical surf-loving beach bum.

But in saying that, the song clearly offers some foot-stomping fun and you are bound to end up with the steady beat pounding through your head hours after listening to it.

Unlike his usual electrifying sounds in Highriser, the drum beats in Lemonade are much stronger.

Yet the tunes and beats are clearly both Jackson Dunn creations.

Though in comparison to his raw track, Yuni's Song, Jackson's new song leaves a completely new and somewhat improved taste.

Have your say on Jackson's music when he rocks into town for the Grand Hotel's El Grande Festival on Saturday, August 3.
