Devours - Curmudgeon

Devours is bedroom pop from Hell.

It is the sound of a queer electro-punk artist channeling his love for late 90's nu metal, Blackout-era Britney Spears, and vintage Nintendo soundtracks into fiery, confessional pop anthems.

The Vancouver artist has received coverage from Vice, CBC Radio, the Globe and Mail, and Exclaim, and his energetic live shows have taken him across Eastern Canada and to numerous festivals such as Treefort Music Fest, Terminus, and Khatsahlano.

His sophomore album Iconoclast - a meditation on masculinity, queer identity, and self-love - was released in March 2019 on Artoffact Records.
