BEST NEW SONGS: DENM - UNDER PRESSURE (ACOUSTIC)

DENM - Under Pressure

Earlier this month we brought you our main man DENM’s new cut, “Under Pressure,” and today we’ve got an acoustic version of the song that highlights its dexterity.

The pulsing electronics and bass-driven beat are replaced by shimmering guitars. This change in scenery recasts the lyrics and shines a light on the raw nerves being struck. It sounds like a Love Is Hell-era Ryan Adams song, especially compared to the dance-y original. What’s crazy is when you compare these two versions, you realize the immense talent DENM has, given that this song works so well in such vastly different contexts.

Both versions are wonderful and give use something to do while we wait for an official first release from the dude.

Thanks for stopping by the DENM music blog. Here’s the lyrics to DENM “Under Pressure”, stenography done by yours truly.

why do i always feel this way
tonight i can make it all go away
no more depression
i’m under pressure

i’m under pressure
so imma dance till I feel better
i’m under pressure
so imma dance here forever
i’m under pressure

why do i always feel this way
tonight i can make it go away
why do i always feel this way
tonight i can make it all go away
no more depression
i’m under pressure

i’m under pressure
so imma dance till I feel better
i’m under pressure
so imma dance here forever
i’m under pressure
