Label: Hopeless Records
Released: 25th June 2021
If genre is indeed dead, then De’Wayne is the one to dance a lively jig upon its grave.
Bleeding the lines between pop, rock, rap and day-glo, visceral brilliance, ‘Stains’ may well be the shot in the arm a whole scene needs. A collection of songs so sharp they demand the limelight, it’s the attitude and raw energy that power through. Awsten Knight team-up ‘Perfume’ remains a show-stopper, while ‘I Know Something’ taunts at breakneck pace.
Confident in that most assured of ways, ‘Stains’ is the antithesis of boring. One of the most exciting arrivals in years.
