The Electronic Mayhem: J*Davey
J*Davey is 2 parts. 1 part Jack Davey. 1 part Brook D’Leau. Considering they’ve been out for a hot minute, I’m assuming most of y’all are already well acquainted with their hybrid sound and new wave aesthetic (but just in case you don’t, I thought I’d write a lil something something).

Self-described “electronic mayhem“. Like all dope artists, they are less concerned with classifying their sound and more concerned with engaging their audiences and putting on the best, most outrageous show possible. Here is one of J*Davey’s older but classic music videos for “Mr. Mister” that will give you insight into what they’re about:
