Record Kicks New 45 - The Devonns - Come Back / Think I'm Falling in Love magazine cover

Those Record Kicks people have been in touch  and passed on news all about a brand new 45 that is out today.

The  Devonns - Come Back / Think I'm Falling in Love

It's the debut 45 from a new Chicago band, called the Devonns and is pushed out today the 1st June 2018, with an album lined up to follow this winter.

Here's the listen and read part...

LIMITED EDITION 45 vinyl black (500 copies worldwide) 

The Devonns are a new soul band from Chicago, Illinois. Raised on a strict diet of 60s and 70s Soul music, despite their very young age the lads have very clear in their mind what to do. Pulling from influences such as The Impressions, Leroy Hutson and Leon Ware as well as from contemporary acts such as Raphael Saadiq and Jamie Lidell, The Devonns' main focus is on exploring the elements of songwriting and arranging/production that made music from 1965 on. 

Wrote in 10 minutes, completely on a $300 Danelectro singlecut guitar and recorded at Kingsize Sound Labs in Chicago, the super soulful debut single "Come Back" sees the participation of some top-notch musicians such as Paul Von Mertens (Mavis Staples, Paul McCartney, Elton John) who arranged the string section and Ken Stringfellow (R.E.M) as a special guest on guitar and percussions. The single is appetizer of their debut full length which is scheduled to be released on Record Kicks next autumn. "Come Back" hit the streets next June the 08th on digital download and limited edition 45 vinyl. 

Started in 2016 by the singer and songwriter Mathew Ajjarapu who, after he dropped out of med school found himself drawn over and over to underground soul hits becoming hooked on their steady groove and impeccable production and arranging values, The Devonns see the rhythm duty entrusted to Khalyle Hagood (bass) and Khori Wilson (drums), while Cam Cunningham is on the guitar.

 I can see Paul Von Mertens has influence...but i’d still like to know why they picked  The Devonns as their name?

Wouldn't rush out and buy the album on the strength of either of those two sides.  Just washed over me.
