Devics (stylized as Dévics) is an indie rock band from Los Angeles, California consisting of Sara Lov, Dustin O'Halloran, Ed Maxwell, Theodore Liscinski, and Evan Schnabel. Their music can be described as melancholic.

History[edit]

Lov and O'Halloran formed the Devics in 1993, they were based in Los Angeles.[1]

In 1996, the band released its debut album, Buxom, on their own record label Splinter Records.[2] They recorded their second album late 1997 early 1998, with it being released later in 1998.[3]

In 2001, The song Key is performed by the band in the bar called The Bronze in Buffy the Vampire Slayer during the fifth season, in an episode titled "Crush".[4] The song's lyrics relate to the character Spike's struggle to overcome the pain of being a true vampire, which is caused by a chip implanted in his brain by a government agency.

Solo careers[edit]

Devics have largely been inactive since 2006, as both Lov and O'Halloran have pursued separate music careers.

In 2009, Devics covered The Cure's "Catch" for the American Laundromat Records produced compilation Just Like Heaven - a tribute to The Cure. It was recorded by Pall Jenkins of the Black Heart Procession and included performances by Scott Mercado, Jimmy LaValle, Pall Jenkins as well as Dustin O'Halloran and Sara Lov.[citation needed]
