about

Vancouver-based Jeff Cancade, AKA Devours, is the sound of a queer DIY punk channeling love for The Presets, Fischerspooner, and Britney Spears, mixed with vintage Nintendo themes into fiery, confessional bedroom electro-pop anthems.

After releasing a debut LP called Late Bloomer in 2016, which detailed Jeff's experiences coming out as gay and finding his place in the Vancouver arts community, Devours was praised by the likes of Exclaim!, the Georgia Straight, CBC Radio 3, Discorder Magazine, and Silent Shout, and scored coveted slots in Vancouver’s Khatsahlano, Music Waste, and Fringe festivals. The project also recently toured Eastern Canada with Mint Records recording artist Kellarissa.

After experimenting with an electronic pop-rock sound that laid the foundations, Cancade found the Devours sound by mixing in disco, funk, and 80s video game sounds with a political and nostalgic fury, making for easy-listening that gets less easy the more you listen. Imagine an angsty disco, full of queer energy but laden with existential drama.

"This is the kind of music you make when you need a break from your day job."
-Greg Bouchard, Noisey
