DVWEZ makes music that updates 80s pop tropes; a winning formula that's surprisingly tough to do really well. She does so on "The Life" by deconstructing the glamour of the era and writing candidly on the temptations that a musician faces on the road and the afterparties they frequent. "You want it, right?" she asks on the chorus, as thumb pianos flicker and a fuzzed-out synth bass hovers below.
"'The Life' is about the temptations you face as an artist in the industry," says DVWEZ. "There are a lot of choices you have to make during your journey to success, and often, good people make bad decisions." Stream "The Life" below.
