The debut music video for Devan DuBois' "Long Live" premiered last week. Of the song Far Out Magazine praises, "..."Long Live" takes blues chords and distortion and mixes them with heady orchestral sounds suggestive of the psychotropic Californian landscape.

His lyrics are poetic and evocative...DuBois' vocals are alternately revealed and submerged by the musical noise, and at their sweetest and most soaring reveal pure tones which evoke a young Jack White in attack but with a more honeyed, Southern softness."

Of his vision for the video DuBois comments, "There was a lot of thought in regards to how my first music video could best represent the song, the album, and me as an artist. "Long Live" is a song that both sonically and thematically represents the scope of the album.

I saw the connection between life, surrealism, absurdity/foolishness, wisdom/knowledge and beauty." Produced and recorded by Jeff Sojka in L.A., "Long Live" will be featured on DuBois' forthcoming debut album, which will be released later this year on Sensibility Music.

Already receiving notice, DuBois' song "Too Many Aces" was recently featured in a Kettle One ad campaign.
