‘Love Run is an extraordinary debut, a masterpiece of swirling, brooding, often epic drama. It grabs you and refuses to let go.’ – FATEA
‘Original, varied, engaging, exciting…the best thing I’ve heard this year’ - For Folk’s Sake
‘One of the year’s most exhilarating, exciting and visceral debuts, they deserve to be huge’ - Folk Radio UK
Since the release of their debut album ‘Love Run’ The Amazing Devil have grown to become an eight-person 'intriguing, beguiling rapscallion gypsy orchestra' (Record Collector) with a raging north-sea sound that puts them at the cutting edge of the alternative folk revolution. Formed by Madeleine Hyland (previously Dexys ‘impossibly beautiful’ (The Guardian) guest vocalist) and Joey Batey in 2015 when they were thrown together by the RSC, (which took them to Broadway and the battered back-alley dives of New York) they are gathering a cult following in Soho and around London for their intense, raucous, heart-storming live shows, full of beating toms, battlecries, soaring harmonies, mournful cellos, searing electric guitar, flute and violin, creating an intricately layered symphony of the modern and the mythic.
