Dark western pop artist DEVORA has just released her debut EP, Outlaw, after captivating fans with a series of nontraditional and extraordinary singles built around a vengeful and lawless depiction of a modern wild west. The EP features five tracks, narrating DEVORA’s childhood growing up in desert life as she experiences “the sinister lawless side of desert life and the characters she’s met along the way, the modern goth-western vignettes she conjures up are of ghost towns, dark rodeos, the haunted desert, abandoned motel rooms, skylines on fire, the open road and reckless tales of love and loss.” The unnerving tracks feature twisted storylines that showcase devious characters, while oozing with fierce lyricism and dark pop grooves that take the listener on a wild ride deep into the eerie and mysterious world of the artist’s mind.
In the opening song, “Fist Fight” DEVORA has a bold message to share about standing up for yourself. The song features brazen lyrics, powerful vocals, and a catchy pop hook that will leave you feeling empowered and ready to take on anyone that stands in your way.
“Body Bag” is a song about seeking revenge on your naysayers. DEVORA confides,”have you ever been so frustrated with someone that you just wanted to tie them up in a burlap sack, dump them in a 6- foot dirt grave in the middle of the Mojave desert and then drive off at full speed into the sunset without looking back?” The track features gritty goth pop melodies and vigorous vocals intertwined with western vibes, creating the ultimate battle call.
DEVORA was raised in the deserts of Arizona and has been singing, writing songs, and creating strange narratives since she was a small child. The artist is now bringing her sonic and cinematic creations to life and we couldn’t be more intrigued.
