SINGLE REVIEW: Beks – Devoted

After experimenting with punk and hyper-pop influences, Beks has stepped completely into the pop light as she welcomes herself into a new chapter of creativity. Earlier this year she released the infectious break-up anthem ‘The Thing About Us’, which went onto being featured on a national ad campaign for Home And Away. Introducing herself to a whole new audience of fellow pop music lovers, the Brisbane based singer-songwriter has followed it up with an equally infectious banger that will have you ready to dance under the flashing of candy-coloured lights. 

Soaked in 80’s reminiscent synths and beats, this track plays up to the slinky pop references of Kylie Minogue and Robyn. It’s a glittery affair that immediately transports you to another dimension where you can just let go. It’s an escapism, which is whole heartedly the power and ultimate premise of pop music. 

Lyrically, she confidently re-claims her power in a situation that was pulling her under. A lot of us have been in toxic relationships where power-play was unfortunately a key part to the heartbreak that later followed. She finds the confidence within herself to take back that power from them and let them know that she is no longer devoted to them, and that she is walking away with her head held high. “I’m not devoted to you” she proclaims in the euphoric hook. 

If you’re in Brisbane you can catch Beks’ ‘Devoted Single Launch’ at La La land on Saturday 27 August with special guests Ellen Reed and Saint Barae. You can purchase tickets HERE
