"TESTEMONIALS"

“Well dressed and visibly eager, London's Device took the stage with the appetite of the ambitious. Without introducing themselves, the band bent its first song around the still sober audience. Much of their music could be the soundtrack to a James Bond series… pure sexy, espionage.” Chris Blackburn, YOUR SOUND.COM USA


“As soon as I put it on I knew I had something special” Dave Virr, WERS 88.9FM

“Device combine that U2 power thing with a vocal score infinitely more delicate than anything Bono could ever do..." – James Alexander, Redbrick Magazine, Sheffield University.

"Soaring vocals, Cloud swirling guitars and a haunting e-bow melody to break the hardest of hearts. Imagine if Radiohead were fronted by Jeff Buckley.." – Garry Crowley. BBC Radio London.

“Shivers shot through me as I heard Vauxhall Cross played live for the first time; I couldn't help but sing along at full volume, not fussed about the poor people suffering around me. Even the most tone-deaf could sound angelic when bellowing a Device tune…” - Tanya, Fan and Website Administrator

"I feel it's often a band's slower moments that prove the quality of an artist and 'Vauxhall Cross' more than attests to Device's worth. This is possibly the album's defining moment "You never thought MI6 could make you cry" sings Chris U, in what could never be a straight forward song about lost love. There may have been a better song released so far this year. I just haven't heard it yet!" James Davies, Amazon On-Line Review


"Music for a post club taxi ride through the sleeping streets of the bands beloved London. Stunning..." – Michael Whittle, Barefacts, Fanzine.

Bio

London-based 'Spy Movie' Rock quartet, Device’s debut album has been gathering momentum since its June release. Fresh from headlining an XFM-sponsored extravaganza, the band have received a universally positive reaction to their enigmatic lyrics, bruised delicate melodies and filmic soundscapes.

MTV have given the thumbs up to their excellent Drug Running video (Cinematography by Will Henshaw: Depeche Mode, Moby). The Box and other EMAP channels are expected to give their decision in the coming days.

Elsewhere, the album has received an overwhelmingly positive response from media across the board with key plays on BBC Radio One, XFM, Virgin, Radio London and countless regional stations across the UK.

With an American radio campaign just starting the band have already picked up rotation on radio stations across the continental United States from New England to California.

Device, who have featured on two internationally released compilation albums over the past year, signed with Ravensbourne Records earlier this year. The label immediately named them as one of its two flagship acts and agreed to provide funds for an album, video and media campaign.

For the past year, Device have kept up a non-stop live schedule, playing one London date per month (usually The Barfly, Metro, Borderline, Dublin Castle etc.) whilst getting out to venues across the rest of the UK as their following expands.

They next play The London Bar Academy on 12th August. Guestlist requests should be made to Wilton & March Media on 020 7404 1050.

Blending filmic, epic musical soundscapes with dark psychedelia and quirky humour, they have created a thoroughly distinct and compelling style and sound that has captiavted a growing fanbase across the world.
