The Devil Whale has been described as having a “SoCal alt-rock vibe with folk elements” and gorgeous harmonies. But when they’re not on the road (they played over 100 shows in 26 states last year), they’re home in Salt Lake City, writing and recording songs. The Devil Whale is this month’s featured band on KCPW’s Sounds from the Lounge and on Tuesday, songwriter and guitarist Brinton Jones joins us to talk about the muse and the music.
