DIVORCE – ” Services ” EP

Posted: October 2, 2022 in MUSIC

Divorce is the new alt-country and grunge-fuelled project from Kasper Sandstrom, Felix MackenzieBarrow, Tiger Cohen-Towell and Adam Peter-Smith.

The Nottingham band arrive at the start of 2022 with “Services” – a massively infectious indie-rock road trip punctuated by stops at grey, clinical service stations which explores the shaky borders between adolescence, in all its glorious excess, the weight of early adulthood, and the absurdity of life in a world turned on its head by late stage capitalism.

As Tiger explains, “Both teenage dysphoria and the reluctant ascent into the chaos of my mid-twenties meet each other in this track. I looked back on the suffocating boredom and the pain of being 16, and how I longed for the simplicity of human closeness and car journeys. I wanted to channel a zeitgeist that we all feel in touch with, pain, trauma and cacophonous emotion; summarised in the mundanity of a service station.”

Following explosive and playful alt-country debut “Services”, with acclaim generated across the press landscape (DIY, So Young, The Line Of Best Fit, Clash), the band turn down a shadier fork in the road with their second single, “Pretty”

4-track EP from Divorce, out digitally on December 2nd 2022 and physically in Spring 2023.

“Services” is out now on Hand In Hive Records.
