Dev and production outfit The Cataracs (aka David and Niles) have been holed up in their downtown L.A. studio to cut tracks for Dev's forthcoming debut LP. Most of you will know Dev as the auto-tuned vocalist featured on Far East Movement's "Like A G6" that is flying up the charts around the world. (Yes, she is the girl who has made "blizzard" and "slizzard" sound legendary.)
In my recent video interview with Dev and The Cataracs, Niles explained that the sound of Dev as a solo artist will feature more than the slappin' bounce of "Like A G6." A new Dev track has leaked on YouTube that is a good example of that. "Killer" is a hooky pop-rock track with subtle synth stylings that shows off a different side of Dev. Promising new pop for 2011.
And on a related note, if you have not seen my video interview with Dev and The Cataracs then you must. It is one of my fave video interviews of the year. Epic! Make sure to watch it all the way to the end for all the good stuff.
