    Devil I Know makes it into the top 30 only just by a tiny margin. Originally it wasn’t intended to be for Cape God, instead it was meant to be a pitch song it was conceptualised during what Allie describes as ‘one of the most difficult writing sessions’. There had been some interest from Rihanna and others but not much happened. Allie had basically forgotten about it in hoping someone would pick it up. But it eventually grew on Allie over the years and eventually included it on Cape God. With 10 songs already written Allie felt the album was lacking flavour wise and Devil I Know filled that void. Before being completely redone to fit Cape God the song originally had a more generalised message regarding addiction. In the context of Cape God it’s about battling your inner demons and she says ‘it’s the most straightforward song on the record’. Honestly it’s a shame this has left now I think it’s message is very important to album and I love the overall mood it sets. I love the contrast between the quiet verses and dramatic chorus.


    daninternational (9):

    “It's a good song, but also feels like an advert soundtrack too.” To be fair I could hear this on any Young Adult orientated TV show.

    Gemini (9):

    “"I could pretend that i'm just praying now, But i'm on my knees... I could scream somebody help me out, But the wicked one is me..." I love. This song is moody- which she is so good at putting forth in her songs. I love the production of it and it always gets stuck in my head.” Yes it’s such a earworm and she does moody songs so well.

    Untouchable Ace (8.8):

    “Like some Marc Cherry theme tune.”

    collxtion (8.5):

    “Familiar thematic ground for Allie, another entry in the Bitch/Simon Says ~shadow self~ canon. The chorus is a bit grating, but the Dark Scandipop MØ-isms and the interplay of lyrics and melody in the verses really elevate the overall narrative (“I wanna want to get free… / stayin’ with you is easy………er than leaving”).” I’m still salty about the injustice towards Simon Says. Compared to the former Devil I Know’s message is way more straightforward and isn’t so obviously about Allie.

    imaduck (7.5):

    “I find cape god just lacks the punch that her previous work has.” No, that is the entirety of her Pre X Songs that is lacking.


     
  15. I can get behind this elimination. I guess it's not a fave of mine because, taking out the ad-libbing in the last chorus, the song can sound a little one dimensional in a sense. The post-chorus I could pretend that I'm just praying now / But I'm only on my knees is a wicked good couplet though!
     
  16. Not one of the three great tracks from the album!!11!11

    My fellow gloomsters, well it’s over.jpeg and I’m not very happy about today’s fuckery of this result. Originally noone on her team liked the demo but I’m glad they eventually came round to June Gloom’s greatness. Allie describes this song as the most soulful song on the album. It’s about Allie’s many sick summers where she was stuck indoors whilst her family and friends were living their best life. She lyrically describes ‘it’s meant to be dry with a touch of self deprecation and a sprinkle of existential crisis’.

    Honestly it’s a pity this only reached #29 it deserved better as this song is quite a mood for me this is the most relatable song to me by a singer ever. Aside from being that lockdown bop it’s basically my life anthem as I'm the epitome of antisocial. I’ve spent a lot of my 33 years on this planet stuck indoors wishing I was one of the ‘cool kids’ instead.

    DJHazey (10):

    “Why is she calling me out like this? She wrote my fucking biography.” I agree she wrote my biopic in song.

    collxtion (10):

    “June Gloomsters put your hot and heavy ashes up!!!!!! I feel like this song gets no love from Allie herself, but those piano bonks just DO something to me.” Yeah she seems more passionate about the other Cape God songs.

    daninternational (9):

    “I'm amazed at how different yet interesting the music/production of all her tracks are. The heavy piano works so well here.” She has definitely got range and I love that for her.

    Gemini (9):

    “This little bop was really the quarantine anthem, huh? When I was depressed being trapped inside all summer, this song really spoke to that, despite being created before the pandemic, Allie really saw the future with this one.” The pandemic bop to end all other pandemic bops.


















    Next result will see the first 11 leave...










    Will yours be safe...
