Nottingham indie newbies Divorce share mesmeric new effort ‘That Hill’ (out November 29th), the final reveal from the band’s debut EP ‘Get Mean’, which arrives on December 2nd via tastemaker label Hand In Hive (TV Priest, Wyldest, Blackaby). The vinyl release is set to follow in early 2023.
“‘That Hill’ was written as something of a commitment to pursuing our dreams,” explains singer/guitarist Felix Mackenzie-Barrow. “The first lines came out of early morning shifts in a dead-end minimum wage job and the general chaos of trying to make a career of the thing you love most in the world.
With widespread support throughout the press landscape, (DIY, So Young, Brooklyn Vegan, The Line Of Best Fit, Clash, The Independent, Rough Trade, Gigwise), accompanying lead singles ‘Services’, ‘Pretty’ and ‘Checking Out’, as well as prestigious BBC Radio 6 Music B-list and C-list playlist spots, the group’s thrilling development has certainly gathered considerable momentum in recent months.
Now gearing up for the release of their debut EP – centred around songwriting duo Felix and singer/bassist Tiger Cohen-Towell’s willingness to tackle life experiences in the form of absurd subjects and cutting lyricism – the four-piece have revealed it wasn’t even supposed to be an EP at all.
Earmarked for live slots alongside the likes of Yard Act, Alvvays, HighSchool, L’objectif and The Lounge Society early next year, the quartet’s debut EP is sure to propel them to new heights, with further new material and additional live dates on their way very soon.
