“Maybe / I don’t want to be your friend / I wanna be lovers / I don’t wanna be your mate / or just like the others.” The chorus of Devon’s latest single, I DONT WANT 2 B UR FRIEND, rings through your ears and resonates in your heart.
Watch the video for I DONT WANT 2 B UR FRIEND right here, right now. It will make you love love and want to snog your lover on a fur rug, in front of a tin foil wall, or under a wash of rose-tinted lights. Basically, anywhere, tbh.
The two minute and nine-second video will as swiftly knock you off your feet as it will hook you in, line and sinker. Like all good lovers, really. Devon’s energy transcends like a wave of pink pop while he dances around wearing a white suit, diamanté encrusted guitar shining as Devon jumps around to his newest bop.
Tarek Musa mixed the new track by the Forest of Dean singer. Devon was recently signed to Universal after a delightful string of summer festivals (Truck, Live at Leeds et al.).
Psychedelic hearts pump in the background as Devon coos, “I don’t want to be some weekend thing / I want to be with you Sunday morning / I don’t want to be your friend / I wanna be lovers”. You then see him tumbling out of the shot (maybe onto the fur rug?) in the faux dramatic fainting kind of way lustful love makes many of us do.
Devon is set to play his biggest headline shows to date at Camden Assembly in London and Rough Trade in Bristol this October. Devon, I don’t want 2 b ur friend, I want 2 b at ur gigs.
