NEW MUSIC: L DEVINE | PRIORITIES

English electro-pop singer L Devine has released the final single titled "Priorities" from her upcoming EP "Near Life Experiences: Part One." Highly electronic and icy-cold, "Priorities" retains the disco-adjacent thump of Devine’s more synthetic songs and the caustic with that permeates all of her lyrics. All about the breaking point in a relationship, she says, “I had the title ‘Priorities’ in mind for a while. I just wanted to get my frustrations in a relationship out, as I was so maddened that this person wasn’t putting me first like I was with them. Over time, the song’s meaning has changed for me. Now it makes me think of the journey I’ve been on with myself since I wrote it. I’ve realized all the things I list in the song that this person is prioritizing over me are things I should be doing for myself. I was so fixated on putting my whole self-worth onto this person when really, I just needed to stop and look after myself.” "Priorities" is at the other end of the love spectrum from the previous single, ‘Girls Like Sex.’ While the latter is all about casual fun and reclaiming the looseness of sexuality, the former brings the focus inward and shuts out the rest of the world, wounded by the notion that you’re not met on the same emotional level as someone else.
