Biography

Their songs are pop gems that manage to be both moody and uplifting through a combination of magnetic vocals, chiming guitars, and sprightly rhythms. Artfully and exquisitely tough there’s no time like the present; like old inter-connected office rooms and frequent visits to some idealized future, the band's artistic growing pains have become evident.

At every post –millennium turn and with the addiction to perpetual newness, we look to those who are never standing still. With more than a desire to become famous among friends, this ever evolving five-some have been honing their craft for the last 5 years. Preferring to remain along the fringes they are surprisingly one of their cites best kept secrets. Their first self released debut EP “Birth Of a Lover” instantly garnered a slew of favorable reviews, and publishing deal with Puretone Records, and with the release of their new record "Let The Nightlife Down, " their song's have been featured in Degrassi: The Next Generation, Radio Free Roscoe as well as inclusion on the Maybelline New York/JANE Reader CD 2006! They have earned supporting slots for national acts such as Shiny Toy Guns, Hot Hot Heat, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, Stars, The Dears, Circa Survive, The Sounds, The Von Bondies, Electric Six, and VHS or Beta to name a few. Quietly at work, crafting buoyant pop cadence they are poised to go from private to public.

"Pourquoi? Bring on the pop gems. If this band doesn't open a major music festival next year, we are gonna have words. They've already garnered the great reviews (including this one right here) and have an artful and uplifting sound that makes us dance right in our cubicles. You heard them first, Jane readers."
Jane Magazine - Maybelline New York

"... An amazing record. The Nice Device stand head and shoulders above the sometimes incestuous sounding Detroit rock scene, delivering a mature and energetic album of pop gems that you can't shake out of your head if you try. But why would you? It's incredibly rare for a band to deliver hard driving rock anthems and delicate electro ballads with such natural ease ... sometimes within one song. This is a band bigger than any city or genre can hold. Sit back, enjoy, and rock the fuck out.

Lyrics

Innocent

Written By: Alicia Gbur/The Nice Device

I've got a mystery to solve
I have no solid lead
oh how everything dissolves
before you match the seams
the less you know
the more i'm innocent
i'm going to tell you that i'm innocent
i said i'm innocent
i want to tell you that i'm innocent
i know you want to believe
i'd rather be an exposed wire than
than be a cold machine
and if i learned to shut my mouth you'd be in better company
the less you know
the more i'm innocent
i'm going to tell you that i'm innocent
i said i'm innocent
i want to tell you that i'm innocent
i know you want to believe
keep pouring concrete on the landscape
lets seal this up with a handshake
the future is the future
the less you know
the more i'm innocent
i'm going to tell you that i'm innocent
i said i'm innocent
i want to tell you that i'm innocent
oh no i said i'm innocent
i said i'm innocent
i know you want to believe
