Is it too early to start naming contenders for “Song of the Summer” yet? Because the most recent release from alt-pop songstress Devon is checking off all those boxes. Based in NYC and writing and producing all of her own material, Devon is preparing for a release of her EP Helium, a self-proclaimed “uplifting and bubbly pop project about empowerment.” And if her newest single – titled Glitter – is any indication, this should be a project full of endlessly catchy, dance-worthy, truly fun music – just the kind of thing we could all use a little more of these days.
Radiating energy from its very first bars, Glitter is pure bubblegum pop at its finest. Highlights of this track include impeccable and perfectly modern production, quality and relatable songwriting, and a hook so catchy you’ll find it stuck in your head after just the first chorus.
The metaphor that this track is built on is unique and memorable. Contagious, sparkly, and glamorous – love is quite a bit like glitter, isn’t it? Devon makes her most compelling comparison in the first verse:
“This love is like glitter
It sparkles in the light
And I ain’t getting it off me
For the rest of my life”
A true musical beacon of vibrance and energy. This is a warm Friday night with the windows down kind of song. To get your fix of brilliant, unadulterated modern pop, stream Glitter and let Devon’s uplifting and infectious single provide you with an audible dose of carefree joy.
