New Song: “Devote”

Darkly meandering journey through the emotional highs and lows of toxic love.

Release Date: 07 June 2024

Devote Cover Plain Folly

“I still wish I’d be the one for you”. With “Devote”, Irina Kühn has stirred up the essence of her emotions, plunging into the long dark night of the soul. A story about devotion in the most negative sense: as self-devaluation, self-abandonment, self-destruction, triggered by an unfulfilled toxic love.

Plain Folly literally takes the listener on a journey, a journey through her most intimate, darkest emotions: Grief, despair, hope, resignation and anger are just some of them. What begins cooly electronically and darkly meandering, oscillates from silver hope back into deep twitching shadows.

“Oh I’ve fought for you, but every single bruise makes me feel less adorable.” From self-empowerment to self-sacrifice in one single step – “Devote” is a darkly shimmering soundtrack, engulfed by desperate, worn, breathless vocals. Not exactly light fare. And therefore a song for sleepless nights, long car journeys – and the repeat button.

Plain Folly is many things. Unadjusted, thoughtful, sometimes dreamy, sometimes eruptive. But above all: DIY as fuck exclusively. Irina Kühn aka Plain Folly writes her own songs, plays almost all instruments herself, even partly produces her own music. Her melancholic pulsating indie prism creates its very own niche between Fiona Apple, Phoebe Bridgers and Florence + the Machine, carried by her versatile voice and her artful piano craft. Thus, her music becomes strikingly deep, a surging ocean of associations and emotions, sometimes beautiful and sometimes threatening. There is light, but not without shadow. There is pain, but not without hope. Sometimes shape-shifting as feather-light, sometimes as driving indie pop with a focus on her powerful voice and her great talent on the black and white keys, sometimes as an eruptive rock catharsis, and sometimes as an urban trip-hop fairy-tale. Her new album, due out in 2023, sets self-doubt and transience to music, boldly facing the storms of life alone despite all their heaviness – a wholesome, musically beguiling act of self-empowerment. Plain Folly: against all odds forevermore. And a fabulously exciting new indie discovery.
