Devin McKnight is a musician and songwriter currently based in Brooklyn, NY. Previously hes played guitar in rock projects such as Speedy Ortiz, Grass is Green, and Philadelphia Collins. At the moment, his main focus is the rock band he fronts, Maneka(Monica), which fuses elements of jazz, improvisation, math rock and shoegaze. Under this project he’s released three records Is This You, Devin, and most recently Dark Matters.

We talk to Devin about creating his new record "Dark Matters," the challenges of navigating predominately white spaces in the indie rock music industry, generational trauma, Black experience, and making something more nuanced that sad boy music.

Hosted by Phillip Russell and Ben Thorp
