The group’s vocalist and jack-of-all-trades Devon Geyer graduated from Berklee College of Music. Post-graduation, he found himself living alone and brokenhearted in Silverlake sans car, girl, and gig. At the same time, many of his friends faced the same real world entry aftershocks. Sound familiar? Devon decided to translate that frustration into sun-kissed, slick, and sharp anthems that everybody could dance their troubles away too like “New wave without all the sadness.” He emerged with a millennial mash of Elvis Costello’s romanticism, The Who’s youth in revolt, and just a pinch of indie adventurousness.
