Recently, my attention has been drawn across the Atlantic to Brooklyn (courtesy of the lovely Lizzy of Neon Gold), where a hip young gunslinger by the name of Devin Therriault is currently making all kind of waves on the all-ages live circuit.
Like a throwback to the age of Beehives, Jives and newly found sexual freedom; Devin's sound has classic Rock & Roll stamped all over it, and although seemingly a specialist in hugely catchy choruses upon first glance, it's his lyrical intricacies that really set him apart from the crowd.
His energetic and sexually charged live show has already garnered the interest of the NY indies and only yesterday he was sharing the stage with the likes of The Books, Surfer Blood and DJ Rupture at the Culture Shock festival at SUNY Purchase in Brookyln.
For a taste of things to come, here's the anthemic I Don't Think I. (Singing along is not optional, it's obligatory.)
