From the beginning bass line, to the wonderful synth and drum beats, to the guitar, and the very best, the wonderful vocals, Dev Ray’s single, “Can’t Hide”, is a masterpiece, a combination of English 80’s New Wave, 90’s DIY, and 00’s pop magic. Dev Ray is the solo project from California native Devin Ratliff, former member of dream-punk bands So Many Wizards and Tomemitsu. The dream-punk is still so evident in Dev Ray’s music, which is great because he is one of the masters. I am a huge fan of dream punk, and Dev Ray has made the perfect dream punk song. I love when history merges and becomes the future, and that is what happened here.
