Quick Thoughts: With a funky, alternative pop style that incorporates psychedelic guitar riffs, dev soter brings a fresh sound in just his second track on streaming services, Brainless, out today. Pairing the track’s funky instrumentals with his gruff, strained voice, he takes influence from jazz, rock, and the blues; the result is an irresistible song.
Brainless is a track that feels perfect for late nights hanging out with friends. I get the feeling that dev is going to be very popular on college campuses shortly; he’s got the perfect mix of funky and chill that will appeal to college-aged kids. If this track is any indication of what’s to come from dev this year, the Boston native is on pace to explode onto the scene in 2021. Stream on Spotify:
