Artist Biography

Nation of Language is an indie pop band started by Ian Devaney in New Jersey. Ian had a high school band called the Static Jacks that had a label release for their second album, but the deal fell through in 2013, putting Ian back at his parent’s place in New Jersey. One day his father played OMD’s “Electricity” which inspired him to write a similar track. Soon after he started a project called Nation of Language with a rotating lineup of musicians. The track was titled “Laudanum” and eventually ended up on Nation of Language’s debut EP in 2015. Ian moved to Brooklyn and continued to write songs for his project’s everchanging lineup which included former member of the Static Jacks and Ian’s then-fiancée Aidan Noell. After a tour where Nation of Language supported the Wombats, the band worked on their debut album Presence which came out in 2020. The band found success in this release and did a headlining tour through 2021. Nation of Language’s most recent release was Strange Disciple in 2023.
