The Night the Sun Came Up
is the debut album by Dev
. It is a fantastic blend of powerpop
. She shows that she is very unique and can do her own thing.Getaway
is the first track on the album and serves as an intro
. It starts off as a little girl lost and goes on to show how she has toughened herself up. This is clear from the beautiful blend in tones throughout the song. The next track, In My Trunk
is an explosion of arrogance telling everyone who is boss and is so kick-ass it makes Lady Gaga
The album has another shift in moods with Me
which shows a cuter more vulnerable side to Dev. She shows that she just wants to be loved especially by that special someone. Breathe
is not just one of my favourite songs of the album, but one of my favourite songs of all time! It is so infectious, you cant help but sing along. The clappy beat will have you in a drace on the dancefloor.
The fith track, Take Her From You
is not my favourite. It is a lot slower than the rest of the songs, and a little bit scary. Is this song about jealousy over a best friend meeting someone else, or a bit more than friends?? The song does grow on you after a while though. Lightspeed
is the next song which goes back to the confidence we saw in "In My Trunk", its about people always telling you to slow down and think about your future, when all you want to do is enjoy life for the moment. Its about taking life to the limit and i have fallen in love with the cough!!!Dancing Shoes
and Perfect Match
are both sweeter again, like in "Me". It shows the love of dancing and a lover. The more accoustic sound gives a more gentle breezy feel, completely different to anything else on the album.
We all know the single Bass Down Low
which somes up the album, if the beats not right then she doesnt want to know. Followed by a much sexier feel in Kiss My Lips
, she shows how you can be attractive and in control. The song sums Dev up, she gets what she wants, and no shit. In the Dark
Is another great song which has been released as the second single, perfect for clubbing.
The closing track Shadows
has a good chorus but and proves that Dev can sing too.
The album is a great debut, and i look forward to hearing more from her. She has surprised us with a more accoustic sound then in the singles. Dev has really proven that she is not a one trick pony and can work in a lot of different styles.
Best Track: Breathe
Worst Track: Shadows
