South London's Lauren Dejey flicks a middle finger to negative energy on her witty new single, 'Just Because You Said You're Sorry Doesn't Mean You Are'.
Released via songwriter Jake Gosling's Goldun Egg label, the latest cut from the rising Alt-Pop star effortlessly weaves hushed vocals in and out of minimalist dark-pop synths.
The playfully mischievous lyrics include: "Do you wanna go for drinks in the middle of town?/I’d rather drown."
Dejey said of the song: “We’ve all had someone in our lives that makes us feel weak so often that we start to believe it. I’ve had enough negative people around me already that it’s sort of a f*** you anthem to them and future people. I don’t have to accept your apology if I don’t think it’s genuine, and no you can’t relieve yourself of guilt if I’m still living with the hurt. Might be brutal but it’s how I felt at the time. On the flip side I can appreciate that people that bring others down usually don’t feel great in themselves either, but I’m not the punching bag for that.“
The track is taken from Dejey's upcoming debut EP 'Kali Ma', due for release on October 27.
