Singer-songwriter and producer Devin Kennedy has unveiled his new single, Sundress.
Conceptually, the song navigates themes of love within a fast-paced world and wanting to focus on slowing down and savouring time with your favourite person. Sonically capturing the warmth of a summer day, Kennedy's vocals bring pop goodness to the track, shining with vivid lyricism. The visual sees the musician take to the beach, capturing the feel good summer vibes before he encounters the infamous sundress.
Speaking of the track, the musician shares: “I wrote Sundress about being in the moment with someone you love. It’s so easy to get caught up in the past and future, but nothing is more important than putting everything aside and arriving in the present with that special someone. For me, the bright and dreamy vibe of Sundress all stems from a specific moment, with a specific person, watching the sunset on a summer day in California. It doesn’t get any better than that.” He continues, “In a year where the days seem to blend together and time seems to pass faster than ever before, it’s important to appreciate every moment, especially the limited time we spend with our loved ones. ‘Sundress’ is about those special moments that stand out in a sea of memories. Moments so unforgettable, that they almost feel like a recurring dream.”
Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, Kennedy grew up in a musical household, playing drums, guitar, and bass all before the age of ten. He attended Berklee College of Music, where he combined his passion for writing and producing in multiple genres into a unique brand of left-of-center, California sad-pop that has become his trademark. Kennedy has written and produced recent cuts from other artists including Ben Platt, EBEN, Jake Miller, and Alex Aiono, and is gearing up to release more music throughout the year.
