Montreal duo She-Devils announce their signing to Secretly Canadian and share a brand new single, “The World Laughs,” along with an official video. Through primitive electronic gear, hypnotist vocals, and an “amusement park of sounds”, the duo of Audrey Ann Boucher and Kyle Jukka constructs a fun-house world of beautiful chaos. The music is built from original sonics inspired by everything from Iggy Pop to Madonna to T-Rex to Can, as well as the romantic longing of ‘60s yé-yé. She-Devils will play a special, intimate performance at The Glove in Bushwick, Brooklyn today. Click here to purchase tickets.
