Track: Divorce – Gears

Flower Up

Divorce have shared their new single ‘Gears’, which is their first music of the year, produced by Catherine Marks (boygenius, Foals, Wolf Alice). Along with this news the band have announced their biggest UK headline show to date at London’s Islington Assembly Hall in October, and two very special hometown headline shows at Nottingham’s Bodega, all of which follow a packed Spring and Summer live schedule that includes SXSW, a UK tour with Everything Everything, and a raft of international festivals

Singer/guitarist Felix Mackenzie-Barrow comments:

“I don’t remember when the gears got stuck”, while it surges to its dramatic crescendo. Of the new single, he offers: “Gears was written when I’d just moved to London and was working very long hours whilst trying to keep up with increasing band commitments for Divorce. I was spending all of my time working or playing shows and couldn’t maintain any kind of social life or keep up with the spending a social life felt like it would cost. The song came out of those frustrations.”

Welcome to your new favourite band who craft ear catching, head turning, toe-tapping brilliance. Distorted jangly melodies and a matter-of-fact vocal delivery give the track a sense of melancholy and its that vibe and the absorbing songwriting that has you staying to the last note.

Previous Album Review: Nino Gvilia – 'Nicole/Overwhelmed By The Unexplained’ : a surreal experimental song saga with an indefinable magic.
Next Album Review: Golden Fang's 'Small Worlds' is a galaxy of pure delight, absent of formulaic tropes and filled with light and creativity
