Editors’ Notes

Dev Hynes is a man of many talents, having dabbled in musical excursions as diverse as skronky dance punk (Test Icicles) and oddball folksiness (Lightspeed Champion). He’s also a producer and writer and has worked with artists like Florence + The Machine and Sky Ferreira. As Blood Orange, Hynes slips into something sleek, sexy, and transgressive, with a collection inspired by the film Paris Is Burning, a touching 1990 document of transvestite club culture in New York City. Coastal Grooves is a beautiful thing, with a hint of sadness and a palpable desire lurking under the sheen of ultra-cool confidence. The single “Sutphin Boulevard” is a slow, late-night strut, with a stripped-down ambience that glitters with spiraling, metallic guitar flakes and a terse snare cracking out a slow, catwalk-worthy backbeat. Hynes’ guitar morphs throughout Coastal Grooves as a synth might, taking on various forms as the song calls for them. The midway point of “Forget It” breaks open with a bona fide guitar solo, and on “Champagne Coast” he coaxes an Asian flavor out of the instrument.

Saw him open for Florence. He's amazing at guitar and great songs!

I saw Blood Orange for the first time last night - he opened for Florence and the Machine. He's a mixture of Prince & Ghostland Observatory. He totally impressed the entire crowd as his performance was a pleasant surprise. He's AMAZING on the guitar and great voice. I'd buy tickets just to see his own show.

After splitting with his band the Test Icicles and then recording as Lightspeed Champion, singer/songwriter Devonté Hynes switched up styles again, and began making music under the pseudonym Blood Orange. For Hynes, a cult favorite who had also worked on the side as a songwriter for some popular artists (including Florence + the Machine, Theophilus London, and Solange Knowles) and as a fashion consultant for Jay-Z's Rocawear, Blood Orange seemed like his most streamlined project, with R&B grooves...
