Following up support shows with DJ Snake and with shows this week alongside Porter Robinson, rising artist Devault today reveals his debut EP “Stay” via Interscope/ Geffen. Devault cements his obvious potential with a standout body of work, featuring the likes of Bipolar Sunshine and Neon Gold’s Matt Maeson. The release arrives with stellar video for Matt Maeson collaboration, “Between The Words”. Speaking on the release, Devault states:
“Releasing my first project feels like a breath of fresh air, not only for my career but my life as a young man. This EP is a collection of memories and emotions from the past year or so, accompanied by some of my favorite vocalists. I feel so comfortable now in my own skin with this out, as one of the main goals for the Devault project was to put out a body of work that can truly define me as an artist. It’s dark, melancholy, but has glimpses of shining hope and excited to see how it resonates.”

What started as a creative hobby in the calm scenes of Orange County soon became a personal quest to form something bigger than a unique venture — A modern grunge-esque landscape that takes integral instrumentation with an out of the box like sound design and casts visuals that would be reminiscent of an earlier time where rawness and vulnerability was glorified. The desire to create music and become an electronic artist has always been a hidden pulse in Devault’s life, whether it stemmed from his early obsessions over Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan and A$AP Rocky, or analyzing the blend of fashion, film, and music altogether. It’s no longer a search for genre, but rather an evolving sound, appreciating the trials of young adulthood at age 21 and letting him and his audience grow into something beyond a young man and his music.
