Listen Deb Never releases new single ‘Crutches’

She’s off on tour with slowthai and Omar Apollo later this year.

Our Class of 2022 alum Deb Never is back with new single ‘Crutches’.

“I wrote this song 2 years ago when I felt like my life was moving really fast but I was still mentally and physically in a shitty place,” Deb explains. “‘Crutches’ is a metaphor for my anxieties and all the debilitating things that hold me back from feeling free.”

Speaking to us for our Class of 2022 issue, Deb said, “I love that people can’t really put a genre to the type of music that I make or put me in one lane. I can play a rock show or a rap show, you can’t put me in a box. I love artists where you can’t really define them, but they have their own thing - I think that’s sick.”
