Toronto’s Casper Skulls hit hard with “Devotion” – a no nonsense rocker featuring a steady, locked-in groove, which continually propels the track forward to its end. There’s an undeniable swagger and attitude on display here from the animated yelps and shouts in the chorus to the soft, languid female vocal counterpart during a reprieve from the heavier main riff. Straightforward yet dynamic in its structure, this first single off of the band’s new EP provides a welcome teaser before dropping next month.

Casper Skulls’ Lips and Skull EP will be released October 28 on Buzz Records.
