It’s finds like these that have you wondering if label folks are secretly orchestrating some of these viral indie acts. We can’t tell you for certain, but the overwhelming majority of our staff would throw pink slips that this dev09 chick is about to blow TF up. We literally just laid ears on the 18-year-old, South Bend based artist seven minutes ago, and we immediately put our bong down and Netflix on pause to publish a quick post. Everything from her music to her digital demeanor is on point.
Homegirl already had a few pieces of content up on her SoundCloud page but this new track, “You Made Me” (published yesterday)… just made her. That raspy tone, cheeky flair and swagged-out songwriting (& image) are strong indications this emerging act out of the woodworks is about to shake up internet airwaves. Neon Gold said it best, dev09 sounds “like Lorde or Kiiara if they came up through the A$AP Mob”.
Throw in some witty, outlandish and hilarious social commentary and you have yourself a supastar in the making.
