davvn have something they need to get off their chests on their latest single, ‘depressed in heaven.’ The alt-pop duo take a hard look at themselves on the confessional track, coming to the realization that even in a perfect afterlife, they’d probably still find a way to be sad.
davvn – depressed in heaven
Listeners nostalgic for the simpler times that were the early 2000s will feel right at home with “depressed in heaven,” which would fit neatly on a playlist alongside pop-punk royalty like Avril Lavigne and blink-182.
davvn (pronounced “dawn”) is comprised of lead singer McCall Bliss and guitarist Mike Nuzzolo, both of whom grew up on all things Y2K. 2023 has been a monster year for the Nashville duo, whose popularity has exploded in the last few months. In February, davvn collaborated with alt-rock legends Bowling for Soup on a reimagining of the band’s song ‘1985,’ flipping 80s wistfulness for 2000s yearning on the brilliant track ‘2002.’
Since then, the duo has amassed a strong following whilst continuing to make waves in the Nashville music scene. Fans of davvn find community and hope in their music, which channels everything we love about early 2000s alt-rock — but with a refreshing, modern twist.
That balancing act can be seen on ‘depressed in heaven,’ a bubbly track that encourages listeners to ask themselves the tough questions.
“We let perfect moments slip away too quickly in the present and are always seeking more in the future,” the duo says of the song.“We poke holes in our own happiness to the point that we’d probably all still end up depressed in heaven.”
That idea pairs perfectly with the music video, which sees McCall Bliss portraying an angel struggling to find happiness in the afterlife.
‘depressed in heaven’ is as honest a listen as it is addictive, with a strong message that will resonate with anyone who’s ever grappled with their ability to stay mindful. So go ahead, put on some headphones, and feed your inner scene kid — this track definitely deserves a place on your MySpace profile.
