Alt-pop singer-songwriter L Devine kicks off her 2021 collection of tracks with brand new single ‘GIRLS LIKE SEX’, the first taste of new music from her forthcoming release ‘NEAR LIFE EXPERIENCE: PART 1’ out 23 JULY.

A sex-positive homage to the ‘80s, ‘Girls Like Sex’ cements L Devine’s reputation as a pop adventurer exploring all corners of pop music and making them her own. As we’ve come to expect, L Devine puts so much of her personality into the track, with relatable and often revealing lyrics.

L Devine says: “For me, this song is about reclaiming my sexuality and flipping the tired old narrative that sex is for men and feelings are for women on its head. I want the song to empower women having casual sex. Production-wise, I love how the song disguises itself as sweet and innocent to begin with but then the pay-off is so tough and dirty. It’s basically a ‘fuck you’ with a smile! I wanted to make sure the song came out in time for Pride as I feel queer icons and queer artists have always been the artists who weren’t afraid to talk about sex in their music and make it fun and liberating.”

 ‘Girls Like Sex’ sets a striking standard for what to expect from the other four new tracks on ‘Near Life Experience: Part 1’: the pulsing synth electronica of next single ‘Priorities’, outer space glitchy headbanger ‘Off The Grid’, the intimate and textured ‘Be In Her Bedroom’ which draws you in sonically to the feeling of sharing a secret, and the yearning nostalgia of soul-electro ‘Wish That You Saw Me’. Joined by previous singles ‘Don’t Say It’ and ‘Naked Alone’, the seven tracks on ‘Near Life Experience Part 1’ span L Devine’s experiments in pop music, unified by her knack for telling stories both sonically and lyrically.

L Devine adds: “I wanted to push the boundaries of pop music but at the same time, really hone in on the lyrics on ‘Near Life Experience’. As a whole, this project is a lot more introspective than my previous releases. It’s about self-evaluation. The songs are all different moments of heart-searching, whether about my mental health, who I am in a relationship, my expectations as a woman, or whether I’m good person or not. The title is a play on words of near-death experience. To me, it symbolises all the times I thought I nearly knew what the experience of life meant, only to be proven wrong. And that I definitely do not have it all worked out.” 

L Devine’s 2020 singles ‘Don’t Say It’ and ‘Boring People’ were both named as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record before being playlisted at Radio 1. They amplified her growing reputation and also elevated her towards hitting the career landmark of 50 million streams.

Determined to overcome the odds at the start of lockdown, L Devine became one of the first high profile artists to pioneer virtual shows when her URL Tour reached over a million people via socials. She moved home to Newcastle and spent lockdown finishing what would become ‘Near Life Experience: Part 1’ and ‘Part 2’, whilst also releasing collaborations with Route 94 (‘Sad Songs’) and Tinie Tempah & Torren Foot (‘More Life’), both of which were chosen as Tune of the Week at Radio 1. She also released Season 2 of her podcast, ‘L Devine’s Growing Pains’, with guests including MNEK, Florence Given and Sam Fender.
