Consuming with its moody melancholy and stirring vocal performance, “Magazine” is a new single from Albany-based artist Sara Devoe. A post-punk rhythmic feeling combines with hazy synths for a memorable soundscape, as Devoe’s vocals project an immediate power despite the dreamy tonal glow.
Guitar bursts integrate an infectious pull past the first-minute turn. The suave, nighttime-friendly verses escalate around perky guitar pulsations and ardent vocals — as the final minute thoroughly compels, with a hypnotic, contemplative vocal turn that wholly immerses.
Look out for an upcoming EP, Allegro!.
