Lauren Dejey – Yours

A gorgeously stripped-back yet haunting release from London talent Lauren Dejey.

New single ‘Yours’ was produced by Lauren herself, and is an introspective R&B ballad with some subtle eccentricities that define this artist’s unique approach to music making.

“‘Yours’ is probably the most personal song I’ve written. There’s part of me that wants to let people take this song and let it be what it will be to them. The other part knows I definitely wrote it for myself as a form of therapy. For me it’s about taking back power after someone deeply hurts you in a way you could never see coming, reclaiming my body and my memories so I can stop blaming myself. I won’t let someone live in my mind, in every moment, taint every memory, I won’t be anyone’s. Sonically this is that journey from start to finish.”

The new EP ‘Kali Ma’ is out now.

Lauren Dejey – Like A Curse

Emerging South London artist Lauren Dejey returns with a refreshingly conceptual release that is both intriguing and mesmerising.

From the moment you press play on ‘Like A Curse’ you’ll realise that this is not a typical alt-pop ballad, but rather an an ironic hymn to astrology’s witchcraft that is dedicated to all the toxic people Lauren encountered in her life.

“‘Like A Curse’ is all about playing into the Scorpio stereotype from astrology. I love star signs but mine is usually made out to be vengeful, manipulative, ruthless, and jealous. So I thought, you know what why not be a bad bitch who will haunt you forever if you hurt her and probably poison your tea or something?”

Taken from the upcoming EP ‘Kali Ma’ which is due for release on 27th October 2021.

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.”
