Surging pop artist L Devine has released the playful new single ‘Naked Alone’. A shimmering, 80s-style piece of alt-pop, she pines for another lover and complains about lonely nights sleeping solo. It’s effortlessly cool, brimming with attitude and carries itself with a lightweight quality. Making a strong impression with the outright lyrical content on last year’s Peer Pressure EP, this new release is equally as charming and cheeky. On this track she perfectly details the tribulations faced when moving to a new city and feeling lost and isolated. She flips negativity on its head and delivers a dance-ready pop jam, with production coming from INDIIA.

Speaking on ‘Naked Alone’, she noted: “I had recently moved from home to London. I was super homesick and didn’t really know anyone yet… I loved going to the studio and making music but my social life was definitely not thriving at the time. Coming home alone every night kind of got to me after a while. When I heard this super feel-good funk beat, I thought it would be a cool idea to just totally contradict that and turn feeling sorry for myself into this super tongue-in-cheek, almost funny, pop song.”
