L Devine first caught our eye with her EP with her full EP video ‘Growing Pains’. Despite her young age, L Devine opening narration speaks of an artist far beyond her years as she speaks about inspiring women and all the inspiring women in her life who gave her the courage to release the EP. You can watch the full video by Emil Nava HERE.

Today we’re very proud to present L Devine’s FAULT Magazine Playlist of all her personal favourite songs and just why she loves them. Sit back, relax and enjoy!

 

Miss You: Cashmere Cat, Major Lazer & Tory Lanez
This is my favourite song right now. I’ve had it on repeat since it came out. The chorus is a flip of another song and it works so well but I just love how simple the whole song feels, it’s like they did one pass on the mic for melodies while writing and they just went with it. I’m really into Tory’s vocals on it too, sounds so soft and lazy. This song is such a vibe!!

Imperfections: Starrah & Diplo
I’m totally obsessed with Starrah. She’s definitely my favourite artist right now. Every one of her tracks is so hooky but still really understated and cool. She’s written hits like Havana for Camila and Fake Love for Drake and more but her own stuff rocks my fkn world!! And it’s so inspiring seeing a young female completely dominate the songwriting game. She’s written the biggest songs of the past couple of years – it’s so motivating.

Mango: Siba
Siba is my favourite collaborator and my best friend! He produced and co-wrote my song Like You Like That with me, and many more yet to be released songs of mine. When he’s not writing pop gold, he works on his artist project, which is all written, recorded and produced by him. This is my favourite of his, it’s such a head nodder!!

Don’t Worry Baby: The Beach Boys
The Beach Boys are probably my favourite band of all time. Brian Wilson is my ultimate songwriting idol, I think he’s truly a genius. I saw him live a few years ago and I was sat right in the front row. I think Brian and his band loved the fact there was someone under 50 years old there so they passed me their setlist, guitar picks and drumsticks at the end. Pretty cool!!  I don’t know if this is my favourite song by The Beach Boys because there’s too many to choose from, but I love it, it’s so sweet.

Hands To Myself: Selena Gomez
I’ll never ever get sick of hearing this song. I think the chorus is the most satisfying thing I’ve ever heard and I just love Selena’s tone – it’s so delicate and intimate. Plus, it was written by Julia Michaels, another one of my songwriting idols!

Overload – Sugababes 
Nothing can beat old Sugababes. This song in particular. The melodies feel kinda weird and eerie. And I love how the vocals don’t have any tuning on them and feel really dry…it fits with the eerie vibe!!

When I See U: Fantasia
This song really makes me feel something. The lyrics are just so good. It just takes me back to anytime I’ve ever had a crush on someone and was too scared to tell them…which is pretty much all the time haha.

With Every Heartbeat: Robyn
Robyn is such a big inspiration of mine, I love that she makes sad songs you can dance to! She definitely inspired my song Like You Like That. This song in particular was the start of my obsession with arpeggiators and the whole Scandi-pop sound.

You’re Not Good Enough: Blood Orange 
I’ve got really into Dev Hynes while I’ve been writing my next EP. I first heard about him through the beautiful Solange song Losing You and then became obsessed with his Blood Orange stuff. I really like the whole sombre 80s vibe, it’s so funky but so melancholy.

Pink: Julia Michaels
I completely rinsed this track from Julia’s debut mini-album. I really wasn’t expecting the album to be so left and quirky, but I’m so glad it is! She writes pop smashes like Sorry for Justin Bieber and her own Issues and then also makes these really weird and interesting tracks with so much of her personality in them. It feels like I’m having a conversation with her in every track.
