FRESH: ‘If I Like You’ – DeVries

DeVries says “If I Like You”

Indie pop artist DeVries enters 2021 with her brand new single, “If I Like You”. After a busy 2020 with five releases, DeVries doesn’t stop for air as this pumping new single is so effortlesslty simplistic with very little instrumentation and programming, the song bops and pops in a forthcoming year that will see no fewer than SIX tracks released!

DeVries says of the first of those releases: “This is a new era for me – I write music to encourage other people to speak their truth and develop healthy ways to get through the REAL heartache life can create. I am hoping my music can give members of the LGBTQ community the courage to tell their truth and create their stories. 2020 was a hell of a year – there is so much coming from me in 2021. Better buckle up”.

“If I Like You” was recorded in Nashville TN by DeVries and producer Josh Ronen and deals with the realisation that you are addicted to toxic relationships and the fight to avoid them. It is a journey through the emotions of knowing you are attracted to things that hurt you.

DeVries debuted in 2019 with “Sorry ‘Bout That” and after “Know Better” that same year, proceeded to brighten the airways with fearsome tunes like “Make The Boy Cry” and “Idea Of You”, while stepping to the other side of music with the epic, down-tempo numbers, “White Knuckle” and “He Loves The Way I Miss Him”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
