From what I can make of Devin, he’s essentially Chuck Berry times ten with two exceptions; he’s white and he wears too many belts.
Devin Therriault, a young Brooklynite, formed his band after signing with Frenchkiss records (his bass player was an accountant there). It’s rough-as-guts, distorted 50s rock n roll and his single, You’re Mine, would be perfect for that scene in the movie where the rebellious out-of-towner asks the main girl to dance and tells the band to “hit it”. Subsequent knife-fight/drag-race optional.
Devin is heading to the UK on the back of his first EP, but we can expect a full-length album in early 2012. Listen to Devin if you like Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley and more recently, The Hives and The White Stripes.
