Coming off the back of January’s “Someone Else” and her appearance on slowthai’s TYRON, Deb Never has this week shared a new single and video called “Sorry”.
The title “Sorry” is a misnomer, because Deb is anything but apologetic here. What first sounds like a laid back and lovelorn bop is actually an excavation of past trauma, where Deb’s words are uncompromising; “do you feel tall knowing you’re the reason why I’m fucked up black out drunk at another party?” she quizzes. “Big shit, rock star / but I think you’re boring” she tells them before going on to reflect “thank god I cut the cord / ’cause I can’t be tied to you.” Evidently, Deb is not entirely over the ex, but it might just be because of how obnoxious and arrogant they are – and “Sorry” is just the perfectly poised take down they deserve. Hopefully it helps Deb move on, but for us it provides a piece of quietly emphatic future pop to enjoy.
The video for “Sorry” gives us more insight into Deb’s vulnerability and pain, giving us a stark view into the artist’s psyche. Check it out below or listen to the song on streaming platforms.
With more hopefully coming soon from Deb Never, make sure to follow her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
