With the new year in motion, many people are looking back on their past while also making hopeful steps towards a brighter future. And, of course, musicians are no exception! Devyn Moon (she/they) kisses a past lover goodbye on their new single “Much Love,” a collaboration with Jheru that addresses the feelings that arise when it’s time to move on from someone in your life that no longer suits you or helps you grow. As both a nonbinary and Asian-American artist, several cards are stacked against her, but Devyn pushes past every roadblock to create a sonic journey all their own, complete with relatable messages packed in such a catchy way that it’ll make you dance along while reflecting on and moving forward from past hurt.
“Much Love” combines jazzy influences drawn from artists like Amy Winehouse and Nina Simone with a more modern pop-R&B feel that makes the song’s bittersweet feelings more accessible to the masses. It prompts reflection, nostalgia, and growth in one easy-to-process package, with just enough synths and groovy piano notes to make it a catchy song you could throw on a party playlist without a second thought.
Hailing from Houston, Texas, Devyn manages to make harsh emotions sound like a breath of fresh air and over-the-top energy feel like a fun night in with friends. If you’re a fan of “Much Love,” you need to check out the lo-fi “Hey Friend.” and the fast-moving “Remedy,” which showcase their versatility while still upholding a similar carefree vibe. Every song she releases has a special Devyn flair, combining elements of bedroom pop and hazy hip-hop in a fresh way you’ll never be able to forget. Devyn is already taking over the alternative pop scene, and now it’s time for them to take over your playlist!
