About the Artist

The Devious Means’ stage presence is dynamic and unrelentingly personable. Add in the fact that they make music that’s both sharply conscious and that you can – at some points simply must – move to, and you get a potent mixture.

Though you’d be hard-pressed to find another indie-rock sound they’re holistically comparable to, their songs bring forth elements from across the spectrum. A thrashingly upbeat...sound melding into contemplative indie-rock that preserves an engaging beat even during more ostensibly low-key moments, when the heady lyrics bandied between Christopher Faris (vocals, guitar) and Rachel Anderson (vocals, keyboard) take center stage.

Their look is a nod to times gone by: three-piece suits, ties, slicked back hair, while Rachel dons a black shift dress with a white petal collar. Their dapper aesthetic is a delightful contrast to their raucous sound.

This music completing destroyed my concentration on my homework. But now I'm bouncing while I'm doing house work.
