DeVotchka on Gears of War 2

DeVotchka’s A Mad and Faithful Telling is certainly one of the year’s highlights. By now you may have heard their song “How It Ends,” featured in the new Gears Of War 2 commercial for XBox 360. The commercial premiered last month during the Sunday Night football game between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts and will continue to run through Christmas. DeVotchka has a sound both more unique and developed than most; filled with sousaphone, accordion, piano, violin, a bouzouki, an upright bass, percussion, trumpet, drums and a Theremin. It is nice to see Xbox 360 choose a good band, rather than the typical hot air and faux punk they often go for.
