Late Bloomer by Sara Devoe

In a musical landscape where authenticity is a rare commodity, emerging artist Sara Devoe’s latest single, “Late Bloomer,” is a breath of fresh air. Coming on the heels of her debut single “East Village,” this dreampop masterpiece, born in the heart of Albany and cultivated in the lecture halls of SUNY Geneseo, is both melancholic and achingly beautiful.

“Late Bloomer” is more than just a song—it’s an emotion, an experience. With a lyrical depth that belies Devoe’s youth, it delves into the all-too-familiar territory of yearning for and accepting the wrong types of attention. As the chords unfurl and Sara’s voice weaves through the narrative, listeners are taken on a journey of introspection and self-realization.

The track’s dreamy ambiance, harmoniously infused with powerful undertones, brings to mind the works of indie maestros like Lucy Dacus, Boy Genius, and Big Thief. Yet, Sara manages to carve out her unique niche, distinguishing herself from her inspirations while paying homage to them.

While drawing influence from stalwarts such as Alex G, FKA twigs, Clairo, and Perfume Genius, there’s an undeniably distinct sound that is purely Sara Devoe. This juxtaposition of familiar yet unique is what makes “Late Bloomer” a song that resonates deeply and lingers long after the final note has faded.

But who is Sara Devoe? Beyond the melodies and harmonies, there’s a student from SUNY Geneseo, standing at the cusp of her graduation, with dreams as big as the sky and talent as boundless as the ocean. Her aspirations to continue her musical journey post-graduation are evident in the dedication and passion that seeps through every note and lyric.

With “Late Bloomer,” Sara sets the stage for her upcoming EP “Allegro!” If this single is any indication, music enthusiasts are in for a delightful treat. One can only hope that as she blooms further into her musical career, she will continue to gift the world with her introspective narratives, ethereal soundscapes, and the raw emotion that has become synonymous with her name.

Late Bloomer is a testament to the struggles, growth, and evolution of an artist who, though she may consider herself a late bloomer, is undoubtedly on the brink of a brilliant musical spring.
