DIVINE FITS — A THING CALLED DIVINE FITS
I’m usually turned off by “supergroups”, but Divine Fits is just fantastic. Composed of Britt Daniel of Spoon, Dan Boeckner of Wolf Parade/The Handsome Furs, and Sam Brown of The New Bomb Turks, this band is not so much a supergroup, more-so just prolific artists who have musical chemistry. The record is made up of driving guitar riffs and synths blended with lovely vocal melodies alternating between Brit and Dan. At times the album is all over the map and the transitions (and lack thereof) feel harsh but the songs stand wonderfully on their own. My standout tracks would have to be ‘My Love Is Real’, ‘Shivers’, and ‘Civillian Stripes’.
'A Thing Called Divine Fits' is due to release August 28th and you can preorder here. It is also currently available for streaming:
