Kevin Devine Between the Concrete & Clouds

This week premiered the exclusive first listen of "Off-Screen," the new single off Between the Concrete & Clouds.

"Devine layers his vocals atop the thick crescendos in the chorus...It's not just the vocal arrangements that are expansive. Sonically, the new album takes advantage of the Goddamn Band, his six-piece backing ensemble,"

Known for his acoustic musings, Between the Concrete & Clouds shows a sonically and technically different side of Devine - fully backed by a band for the first time, a fact he says had an inspired impact on the final product.

Without losing his lyrical density, Kevin explored the technical side of creating structurally more traditional pop songs, evident in the shorter tracks on BTC&C.

Devine has received numerous accolades from press and fans alike over the span of his nine year career.

His discography includes several EPs and live albums, as well as past full-lengths Circle Gets the Square (2002), Make the Clocks Move (2003), Split The Country, Split The Street (2005), Put Your Ghost to Rest (2006), Brother's Blood (2009), and Bad Books (2010), a side project Kevin worked on with Andy Hull and other members of Manchester Orchestra.

Kevin has played with top artists including Bright Eyes, Manchester Orchestra, Okkervill River, Earlimart, and many more, and has performed at the following festivals: Coachella 2010, Bonnaroo 2010, Bamboozle 2010, Lollapalooza 2009, Austin City Limits 2007, and Soundwave 2008 (Australia).
