As a rule, if you play with a lot of passion, you’re going to get noticed, no matter what kind of a racket you make. If, the first time you hear a band, you can’t wiat to hear them live, that’s always a good sign. Divorce (Not to be confused with The Divorce, some terrible indie-pop band that split up a few years back) fall into both of these categories – from the small sample of their work on myspace, the band sound completely commited to each song, making some of the loudest and most chaotic music you’re likely to hear this year. It is glorious.
Think Trash kit – well, a metal band covering Trash Kit anyway. In their vocalist (couldn’t find the name out for sure, sorry) they have a frightening, ferocious ball of energy, backed perfectly by the angry, pounding drums and the fabulous feedback of a band purely in the moment. If you’re asking me, Juice of Youth is their best work -the form of a pop song with it’s almost anthemic chorus, but angry, bitter, resentful and powerful. And, it’s probably wirth noting, not at all poppy at all. I don’t know what to say, really. Just download some, enjoy and go along to their gigs (they’re playing all over, just check their myspace). If you’ve got a headache, it might be advisable to wait a little while before you stick it on yr iTunes –
