Nottingham indie sensations Divorce announce ‘Heady Metal’ EP (pre-order here), set for release November 17th via Gravity/EMI, and share synthy banger ‘Scratch Your Metal’
Arriving hot on the heels of BBC 6 Music-playlisted lead track ‘Birds’ (alongside Arlo Parks, The Last Dinner Party & Miso Extra), the alt-country heavyweights are fast becoming a formidable presence throughout the emerging landscape, with an acclaimed summer festival run now under their belts (incl. Latitude, End Of The Road & Boardmasters), as well as highly-praised support dates with Self Esteem.
Marshalled by songwriting duo Tiger Cohen-Towell and Felix Mackenzie-Barrow, the group’s forthcoming EP signals a closer collaboration than ever between the two bandmates, providing a striking portrayal of insecurity and questioning whether to trust oneself or your new surroundings. The character studies of debut EP ‘Get Mean’ are gone; in their place more vulnerable narratives about grappling with identity amid the new pressures they were experiencing following their phenomenal rise.
With a full UK tour lined up this autumn, preceded by a series of support dates alongside Willie J Healey, the thrilling quartet’s budding live reputation has certainly attracted considerable fanfare over the twelve months, with multiple slots already ticked off alongside 86TVs, Deadletter, The Lounge Society and Warmduscher.
