Cover Me Songs has highlighted “La La La,” from Dev Marvelous‘ new bird and the bee covers album. “Dev Marvelous explores this melange of cool sounds on ‘La La La,’ a breezy cover of a song from The Bird and the Bee’s 2007 self-titled debut record. Elegant electric piano stabs, tinges of nouveau samba, a wormy synth and impressive vocal stacks run through the track, evoking some of the most infectious and synesthetic pop work from producer Greg Kurstin (the ‘Bee’ to Inara George’s ‘Bird’). Though Dev Marvelous’s take on ‘La La La’ may bear some hallmarks of a solo production made in COVID-imposed isolation, this is bedroom pop of a different and brighter sort: pulsing, vivid, joyful.” Enjoy the cover here.
Like every volume of the Road Angel Project series, which Inara George has been curating since the beginning of the pandemic, all proceeds from Road Angel Project Presents Dev Marvelous x The Bird and the Bee will be donated to benefit Sweet Relief’s COVID-19 Fund.
