Speedy Ortiz confirmed earlier this month that lovely Devin McKnight is bowing out of the band to focus on fronting Maneka. Now, he’s shared his debut single with the new project, and it features Jordyn Blakely of Butter the Children as a guest.
Glimmering like heat-haze rising from a piping hot pavement, and swooping into a shoegazey new direction - Devin and Jordyn’s vocals mingling into one - it’s a promising first slice of things to come.
It’s taken from Devin and co’s ‘Is You Is’ EP, which comes out on 1st September via Exploding in Sound.
