New DEFSYNTH Recordings Releases – Devoix & Jan Doyle Band

Two fabulous new releases we’ve recently put out on bandcamp for you that are free until the end of the month.


Combining the talents of Rachel Jaques of Voi Vang fame and Derek Anthony Williams of Jan Doyle Band fame, they have produced some sublime synthpop. Taking influences from The Human League, Chvrches, Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga, it’s stylish modern electropop at its very best.


Taking a brighter musical route that is less synthy than before, JDB refuse to be predictable. People have likened the sound to Beck, Hypothetical Prophets, Tom Waits and Ian Dury. According to the band it was inspired by Republica and Kylie. So there you go.

There’s more tracks than show on the bandcamp embed, some of them we’re keeping secret and hidden so you get a surprise when you download it. There’s about 23 tracks in total.

And here it is below:
