Ga Ga: Lightspeed Champion’s Devonte Hynes

Lightspeed Champion’s Devonte Hynes is our newest obsession. The former “Test Icicles” (get it?) bandmember was born in Houston, Texas, raised in Essex, England and is the perfect mix of a variety of music personalities: he sings a bit like Coldplay’s Chris Martin, talks kind of like Jimi Hendrix, and looks sort of like a bearded Kanye West.

The self-professed comic book lover named himself after a mathematical character he used to draw as a 13-year old and infuses haunting songs of loneliness and galaxies with a little bit of country.

We are ga ga for this oddly coiffed mellow musician and the singles “Galaxy Of The Lost” and “Tell Me What It’s Worth” from his latest album Falling Off The Lavender Bridge.
