“Change” Devarrow

Paper Bag Records recording artist Devarrow, has released his new single “Change.” The single has been in the works for a while; he explains, “‘Change’ feels a bit like an illusive house cat – it’s lived so close to me for years but I rarely see it. I wrote this song back at the same time when I wrote ‘Little Road’, and a lot of the other songs on my first proper album, The Great Escape, but for one reason or another it didn’t get recorded. I then finally recorded it to put it on my self-titled record which I just released, but it felt a bit too poppy to fit with the rest of the tracks, so again, it didn’t make it on to that record. This song has been with me since the beginning it seems, so it’s nice for it to finally emerge from under the bed and let me show it to you all.”

“Change” is also accompanied by a playful music video directed by frequent collaborator Dom Fegan. Devarrow explains, “I dislike that there’s this pressure for contemporary folk musicians to have to be kind of melancholic and serious all the time, and this video felt like a great way to push back at that narrative. Sometimes I do indeed feel the seriousness of my art, but a lot of times I feel like a goof, and why not show that side of my art too?”
