The hyped New York hip-shaker Devin is on his way to Australia in May.
Devin has set tongues wagging at SXSW and in influential UK music mag NME with his raucous rock n’ roll, and he’s now booked a couple of shows in Melbourne and Sydney.
He just released his debut album Romancing in Australia and the US, with a UK release to come.
Devin recorded the whole album at home, then hit the studio with Chris Zane, who has worked with Passion Pit, Mumford And Sons and Friendly Fires.
Appropriately, he says the aim of the process was to go for craziness, “That was the term—’crazy’ was the word of the whole recording process. It doesn’t have to be good; it just has to be crazy.”
Tickets are on sale for his shows now through Moshtix for Sydney and the venue for Melbourne. Check out his tunes ‘You’re Mine’ and ‘Masochist’ below.
