L Devine – “Boring People”

L Devine wields a particular poison in her songwriting. Her new song “Boring People” cuts right through the static to punctuate the threads which connect us all. From blue-collar workers to superstar models on Instagram, she argues we’re really all the same: we get bored in the same way without a cathartic release.

“Wake up to the same nine to five / Drinking coffee, fight off the night,” she observes on the chorus. The lyrical attacks don’t mask the waves of loneliness that come crashing on this line: “’Cause we, boring people / Boring lives.” As exciting as our lives appear on social media, we’re all just sad human beings behind black screens.
