Outlaw Pop artist Devra has released her new EP ‘God Is Dead’ via Tiger Tone Records / [PIAS]. The EP contains four songs, with the previously unreleased track ‘Bonesaw’ leading the way.
Devora says of the ominously enchanting track:
“Bonesaw” is about a night in a motel room gone wrong, in a dark direction. It’s a voyeuristic impression of the lines between romance and impulse being heavily blurred. The song opens with seemingly illusive pretty snapshots of an all-American day dream, but progressively turns morose and ends with a bonesaw left in the motel room sink. I used to read a lot of medical textbooks as a hobby and one of the surgical tools from the civil war era, the bonesaw, always intrigued me. I have a couple of vintage ones at home”.
“A lot of my songs take place in motel rooms. There’s something really macabre and eerily temporary about a motel room where, for essentially 24 hours, you can be whoever you want to be in that room sealed and removed from the outside world… It’s like your own revolving set. What happens in that room stays in that room. A lot of serial killers have set up shop in motel rooms and I know I’ve definitely walked into some gnarly motel rooms where I’ve gotten hit with this feeling – like getting punched in the gut, where I’ve started to put the pieces together that something really messed up must have happened in this room… “Bonesaw” is all of the above”.
Words that just tumble out over a steady addictive rhythmic fuzz of guitar. Devora has blessed us with a slick, cool and dangerous sounding track which demonstrates her knack for crafting unique sounding pop tracks that are some of the best of the genre.
