Perfectly encompassing that all-too common phenomenon of starting a brand new romantic entanglement only to realise that it probably won’t go anywhere, but understanding the importance of embracing the journey anyway – is “Just Begun”, the upbeat new track from New York-hailed rising star DEVON.
Fizzing into life with jangling indie synths and euphoric vocal flourishes is the sun-soaked new offering, featuring the breathy melodies of DEVON and textured guitar riffs – for fans of Stevie Nicks and The 1975, take note.
“My favourite lyric off this new EP is the opening line of ‘Just Begun’: ‘Being with you is like sitting up straight/I just can’t do it sometimes.'” explains DEVON. “This lyric not only establishes the title of the ‘Sitting Up Straight’ EP, but it also defines the tone of the entire project. These songs are about empowerment. They’re about embracing new beginnings, and they’re about learning how to sit up straight and how to take up space. I hope that they make you smile!”
