Devin Sunshine releases fierce album ‘Everything Melts In The End’

Orange County-based rapper and singer Devin Sunshine has developed a unique sound that is helping her carve a path in the industry. The artist is technically classed as alternative pop-rap, but her eclectic, genre blending approach to music expands far beyond this as she takes influence from hip-hop and pop-punk

Devin Sunshines new album ‘Everything Melts In The End’ opens a door for audiences to experience every corner of her musical writing, bringing tracks that are confident, aggressive, unapologetic and tracks that are rooted in emotional vulnerability and remorse. The beats that back these songs are equally dynamic, from pop-punk anthems, high energy hip hop and synth ballads. By the end of the project we can hear that all of these elements are still brought together with a self-assured self-love that Devin will not give up no matter the situation, a mindset she brings forward for her fans to share.

Devin dives into the album, “’Everything Melts In The End’ is a genre expansive album expressing some of my most deep and emotional life experiences throughout the last decade of my life. Your twenties are a pretty crazy decade. And while I’m not out of them yet, I’ve had quite a few deep and momentous existential experiences in the last several years that have inspired this album.

Exploring themes of love and fear, the cycle of life, and working through trauma, this album takes you on a cyclical journey from start to finish. At the end of the outro track you hear a tape rewind, signifying the cycle of life and implying that it’s not quite the end, but a new beginning.

The title of the album is taken from a poem I wrote years ago, that actually ended up being the intro track of the project. The spoken word poem ends with the line “I forgot to tell you… everything melts in the end.” Which is similar to how the outro poem ends. In short, this phrase is about realizing and acknowledging that this life we’re all experiencing is a short one. And cherishing every single moment, from the joy to the grief to the excitements to the traumas, is of utmost importance. Because we’re here for a brief, magical glimpse. And then we all melt in the end.”
