The Devil Whale / Press

“Rock, folk, harmonies slippin’ in and under classic pop arrangements with the right amount of feedback when needed, Kryptonite via Salt Lake City. Jones’ songs, the band, on record are subdued, well crafted and produced- live, they explode. The band supports Jones’ lead like a rock machine should. There’s something going on in Utah...”

Sock Monkey Sound

“On first blush the EP sounds incredibly loose, like it could fly apart at any given moment, but a dedicated listen finds the Devil Whale at their most architecturally sound, layering feedback and varied instrumentation over a steady backbone of hook-filled, classic rock-inspired Americana-pop.”

Slug Magazine

“Young Wives roars out of the gates with something that is infinitely communicated: a general frustration and pointed angst towards the malaise of the American culture, political, and religious landscape. While not totally untethered from the romantic melancholy of Like Paraders, Young Wives represents a lunar step forward in Jones’ songwriting and the band’s newfound openness to experimentation and instrumentation, while remaining grounded in classic rock sensibilities... Aiming a more refined sphere musically, Brinton Jones’s lightly twanged, gravelly voice (sounding like Ryan Adams before he became a parody of himself) and songwriting corral everything into a fluid, moving composition.”
