KCRW Track Premiere: Dev Ray “Can’t Hide”

Written by

There’s something about this new single from L.A. based Dev Ray (So Many Wizards, Tomemitsu) – his first for Dangerbird – that manages to hit all of one’s pleasure centers at exactly the same time. It’s bouncy and fun from the jump, but there’s also a deliciously moody quality that adds such a satisfying extra layer. It’s a little slice of synth-pop perfection that we likely don’t deserve, but should gratefully accept as a 2018 summer jam.

“Can’t Hide” is a part of Dangerbird’s ongoing Microdose Singles series, which features a live music component as well. Catch Dev Ray at Dangerbird HQ on Friday 7/27. It’s free with an RSVP, and 21+
