"Can't Hide", Dev Ray's debut single for Dangerbird Records, is a spirited piece of uptempo indie pop brilliance that showcases Dev's musical aptitude with a finely-honed balance of ghostly vocal melodies, articulate guitar lines, and sparkling synth arpeggios. These elements coalesce over a driving rhythm section to form an undeniable earworm that demands repeated listening and will not leave your head for weeks afterwards. Dev's accompanying single "Palaces" is more of a subterranean creeper that retains his tuneful sensibilities but slows them down into a drowsier arrangement submerged in eerie layers of organ and distorted vocal harmonies.
Dev Ray's single "Can't Hide" will be released by Dangerbird Records in July 2018 followed by "Palaces" in August. Both songs are part of Dangerbird's ongoing Microdose singles series.
