New Music: Lauren Dejey

Time for some of London’s finest new music. If you haven’t yet heard of emerging UK artist Lauren Dejey then get ready to be blown away once you play ‘Blackout’.

Citing influences like Labrinth, ROSALÍA, Jon Bellion and BANKS, Dejey’s sound brings a luxuriously dreamy approach to electronic pop that is not only beautifully melodic but also lyrically intriguing.

“I wrote ‘Blackout’ when I was in an uncomfortable stage in life. I kept going out, drinking and blacking out. I knew I had a great time, but I couldn’t remember much of the night before. This feeling of going beyond a limit and not realising made me feel really uneasy, so I ended up writing this song with two of my best friends. It plays on the idea of knowing you’re blackout drunk, what that feels like, what it looks like etc.”
