May Devun – “Say The Words”


Featuring striking vocals, creeping piano, and string flourishes, “Say The Words” is a moving track from May Devun. The Los Angeles-based artist blends alternative pop and R&B, with a stellar vocal presence echoing the latter. The vocals unleash around 01:45, as a string-building undercurrent also emerges. From here, the track shows a theatrical, riveting feel — pausing for a moment as piano builds it up again with seamless precision. The finale features these strings, creeping keys, and Devun’s powerful vocal presence.

“Say the Words is an introspective journey,” Devun says of the track. “It’s about acknowledging your truths – who you are, and where you’re going. You’re not a stepping stone, so free yourself, and don’t let others define you or your purpose.”

“Say The Words” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2019’ Spotify playlist.
