Here’s a sultry, alt-pop banger all the way from South London, courtesy of 23-year-old singer/songwriter Lauren Dejey. It’s a song about avoiding negative energy in your life; conversely, it’s also full of expletives and Lauren’s dark and moody vocals. It certainly sends a powerful message, one that fans of Billie Eilish and Grimes are gonna love. Expect minimalist instrumentation, a brooding tempo, and lots of sweet harmonies.
