Archive for the ‘Devin Therriault’ tag
If all you wanna do is twist, or shout– or maybe even both– then New York songster Devin is just the guy for you. Formerly known by his full name of Devin Therriault, the singer has dropped his fancy surname and is now dishing out some seriously retro rock-and-roll on the You’re Mine EP. Clocking in at around nine minutes, You’re Mine is three fast and furious songs that offer up a sneak peak of the full-length that is expected to arrive later this year. The EP is also a full-on blast from the past that will get all of the movers movin’ and plenty of the shakers shakin’.
Devin’s vintage vibe works best on opening track “You’re Mine,” which explodes right into a lightning-quick garage rock tale of a love that is brand spankin’ new. Lyrics are essentially incomprehensible, thanks to Devin’s scattered and screechy vocals, but the words that you will pick up here and there– like, most notably, “love,” “baby,” and “moon”– prove that this dude is an old school crooner transplanted to the modern age. Sure, he’s rocking out hard and fast, but his style is a true homage to the days when rebels didn’t have causes and “Bieber fever” was something that irresponsible sailors picked up in the Navy. As Devin told Rolling Stone, “‘You’re Mine’ is just a boy and a girl at the height of their infatuation.’” Fast, cryptic, and unpredictable, it’s everything that young love should be.
