Blood Orange (founded in 2009) is the indie-rock, R&B and new wave soul project of eccentric musician Devonte “Dev” Hynes, hailing from London, England.

Prior to the incarnation of Blood Orange, Dev Hynes had worked as a respected songwriter for the likes of Florence and the Machine and The Chemical Brothers. After contributing to the indie-rock band Test Icicles until 2006, the singer and multi-instrumentalist began working on solo material, the fruit of which was his debut solo album “Falling Off the Lavender Bridge” released in January 2008. Released under the moniker Lightspeed Champion, the album features producer Mike Mogis, singer Emmy the Great, and pianist Nate Walcott, and peaked at No. 45 on the UK Albums Chart. The album, whilst not fairing too well in the charts, did wonder for Hynes’ niche popularity and he quickly developed a devoted following.

The full-length “Life Is Sweet! Nice to Meet You” followed in 2010, after which the singer dropped the Lightspeed moniker and began crafting his new wave synth-inspired, silky R&B groove. Blood Orange’s debut album “Coastal Grooves” arrived in 2011 on his consistent label Domino Records. Seen somewhat like a cult figure, the album promoted Hyne’s tasteful eccentricities, after which he began collaborating with Theophilus London, Florence & the Machine, Solange Knowles, among many other high-profile acts. The follow-up “Cupid Deluxe” arrive two years later in 2013 earning widespread and universal critical acclaim. Featuring contributions from Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth, Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek, and Friends’ Samantha Urbani, the album was led by the singles “Chamakay”, “You’re Not Good Enough”, and “Time Will Tell”. In 2014 the singer-songwriter embarked on a limited tour, which included a well-received appearance at the year’s Coachella Festival.
