Douzey Gives Us The First Listen of Her New Single, ‘Pavement’

This week, indie-pop/rock artist Douzey will reveal her brand new single, Pavement. The dynamic new track is taken from her forthcoming EP, Discard, due on March 22nd. Today, we’re over the moon to bring you the very first spin of the new electric track.

The song kicks off with the resonance of a firmly strummed acoustic guitar, swiftly transitioning into a stoic indie pop/rock anthem. Infused with a punkish potency, the band unleashes a torrent of overdriven guitar licks, solos, and riffs that amplify the rebellious spirit of the narrative. Douzey, with her distinctive vocal style, delivers tongue-twisting introspective and sarcastic lyricism, vividly illustrating the vanity that permeates the life of a corporate man.

Pavement stands as a spirited diss track, setting the thematic tone for Douzey’s upcoming Discard EP, which intricately explores the struggles of modern life, from dealing with problematic housemates and landlords to scrutinising the cost of living, and culminates in a self-reflective roast of her younger 20-year-old self.

“The Discard EP highlights my abundant ability to write when I’m mad. It’s a play on words, that started out as a joke to my friend (we are lovers of card/board games) but then the name just stuck and I couldn’t stop calling the project Discard. There is a card reference in Toxic Rain, but also, the whole EP is a collection of diss tracks.They are poppy songs with indie riffs, they are silly and I hope that it shows people that songs don’t always have to be about love and loss, they can be about all the weird stuff that happens in life. It’s a silly little planet after all, and I’d like to giggle about it with friends while playing cards.” – Douzey.

Pavement marks a musical milestone for Douzey and serves as a sonic portrayal of navigating through the complexities of modern relationships with a dash of rebellious charm. The single is available tomorrow, but you can listen here exclusively today, while the EP Discard is available March 22.
