Track: Dexys – The Feminine Divine

Sandra Vijandi

Dexys have shared the title track from their eagerly anticipated new album ‘The Feminine Divine’. The album comes out July 28th on 100% Records. 

In ‘The Feminine Divine’, the central character in the album narrative starts to really take stock of his life and his attitude towards women. His clarity is such that it’s as if he has been hit with a bolt of lightning.

“After stating his original macho position in the opening track ‘The One That Loves You;’ then admitting that it was a phoney position in the second song ‘It’s Alright Kevin;’ subsequently committing himself to change in track three, ‘I’m Going To Get Free;’ and feeling he’s moving forward in track four, ‘Coming Home;’ the protagonist now examines his relationship with women in ‘The Feminine Divine.’ He’s hit with the realisation that his attitude and actions have been completely wrong,” Kevin Rowland said of the track.

“Overcome with regret and at last glimpsing how women might actually feel, the man gets honest and admits how afraid of women he has been, and how fear has driven so many of his actions. He now sees and acknowledges women’s inherent power: if anything, women are superior; they are goddesses. He sincerely pledges to be different in the future.”

“In the track that follows, ‘My Goddess Is’, the protagonist then enters into a relationship in a completely different way to how he would have in the past. But that’s a whole other part of the story…”

A cool slick track that hangs on Rowland’s spoken word vocals over soaring synths and gentle jazz-inspired piano. It’s a laid back track that benefits from the superb production and instrumentation done b some of the best in the business. There’s a reason we are still listening to the Dexy’s
