Today, Devon Williams shares “La La La La II” and has announced a new EP via Week in Pop. Check out the premiere here. Devon Williams’ Out Of Time EP is out this Friday, 3/5 via Slumberland Records. For the first week of release, the EP will be pay what you want on Bandcamp.
Following up on last year’s album A Tear In The Fabric, Devon Williams is back with a companion EP named Out of Time. Redolent with the feelings of isolation, impatience and dread common to all of us during these days of pandemic, Out of Time is the product of spending lockdown away from home, adding to the sense of dislocation. According to Williams: “In July of last year, I came to Denmark – second happiest place on Earth – and wondered how long I’d be away from Los Angeles and why. So, the ideas of running out of time, feeling stagnant, self-doubt came through in different ways in these songs.”Featuring reworks of a few tunes from previous records and one new tune, the EP focuses on the dreamier side of Williams’ blend of folk and power-pop, calling to mind such inspirations as Felt, The Church and Teardrop Explodes. Lead single “La La La La II” is a new version of a key tune from 2009’s “Euphoria” album and a perfect showcase for Devon’s rich, melodic songcraft. Amidst the chaos of 2021 Out of Time is a much-needed antidote, a soothing melodic tonic for our times.
