#239 Devics – Song For A Sleeping Girl

If you are of the Mojave 3 persuasion then Devics might well be up your alley. Made up of LA twosome Sara Lov and Dustin O’Halloran they produce the sort of softly does it material that will cool your boots everytime. O’Halloran is a noted pianist and has even released an acclaimed instrumental album called, funnily enough, ‘Piano Solos’. Lov for her part has a distinct ethereal quality to her singing that perfectly matches the slow-fi music. ‘Push The Heart’ is the duo’s 4th album and provides a fascinatingly gentle listen. ‘Song For A Sleeping Girl’ is instantly appealing with a soft tread you’d normally associate with a guardian angel. The song shuffles so quaintly that O’Halloran barely needs to amaze on the keys yet the subtle shifts in pace means that return visits become inevitable. You can find ‘Push The Heart’ on the increasingly brilliant Bella Union label. KD
