Deville: filthy electronic pop from England.

London. February 7th 2010. A warehouse. Highly illegal. Dance. Self-destruct. Create.

Two rogues, neither aware of the other. The night becomes light. The conversation takes a sober turn. It inevitably turns to music.

A moment of realisation occurs. These two young hedonists, engaged in this same conversation, suddenly declare passionately and in unison, "I want to play fucking electro!".

Cue "Deville", a musical concoction of strong Pop hooks, electronic soundscapes and pure theatre. The band of two quickly became four and began an intense period of creativity, devising a coherent live sound to tantalise and terrify in equal measure.

Influenced by such musical types as Depeche Mode, Joy Division, Siouxie & The Banshees, The Cure, New York Dolls, Duran Duran, The Smiths and David Bowie, the foursome have created a strong, identifiable bond with the finer aspects of Pop music through the ages, and have learnt from the best that live performance can offer, never failing to make a “Deville” live experience bewitching, climactic, and ever so slightly hazardous.

“Deville” are taking Pop to its logical conclusion: grotesque, gallant, frank, fabulous, hedonistic, sardonic, vintage yet modern, electronic yet organic, murderous with a loving edge, non-religious but so easy to believe, non-committal yet so easy to connect with. This is embracing beauty whilst exposing it for all its ugliness, embracing hedonism yet aware that it will send us to an early grave, embracing everything intellectual and admitting that we all know nothing.

This is “Deville”, and if you empathise, you are “Deville” too.
