Following a string of impressive single's, teasing the extended player, today finally sees uprising Forest of Dean-based wunderkind Devon release his much anticipated mixtape SOMEWHERE IN NOWHERELAND. The latest single I'm A Man continues to show his diverse songwriting talents which comes as a Beck-inspired effort that tackles toxic masculinity from the viewpoint of a man trying their best to adhere to stereotypes and archaic social norms. Devon explains in more detail, "It touches on every possible reason as to why I'm not a ‘man’s man’, from anxiety, to being a skinny dude who likes to write songs, doesn’t exercise, is broke, isn’t doing the conventional thing in life and isn’t fully on top of his mental health. Its so so ridiculous and even worse when I'm typing it out. The chorus hook ‘I’m a man’ is like the bow on all the worries and anxiety that the verses touch on. The hook acts as the cover up for all the truth. Almost like the classic ‘I’m fine’ when asked how you are really doing." Take a listen to the mixtape in all its fine pop glory for yourselves below.
