Following on from the release of their highly-praised EP 'Get Mean' last year, Divorce have now announced their plans for a new EP, arriving later this year.
The new collection 'Heady Metal' will include the previously shared outing 'Bird', is being previewed by the new lead single 'Scratch Your Metal', and is set to be released on the 17th November via Gravity/EMI.
Speaking about the new offering, co-vocalist/bassist Tiger Cohen-Towell said, “I think this is probably the closest thing to a love song that’s been written for Divorce. ‘Scratch Your Metal’ means showing the most difficult and sometimes unbearable parts of yourself outwardly, because the sound of something scratching against metal is the most unpleasant noise I can think of. To be earnest, the song is about the duality of relationships, and accepting a partner as flawed and human in the same ways as yourself. It was written on a cheap Casio keyboard at a friend’s I was staying at in London, and it’s Divorce’s own little stab at synth pop banger”.
While discussing the accompanying visuals, drummer Kasper Sandstrøm added, “For this video, we worked with our good pals Clump Collective to create something really free flowing. The theme of the song is based on identity in all its forms, so we decided that instead of coming up with a choreographed dance that we needed to practice beforehand, we'd move in ways that felt natural to each of us, no matter how it looked! It turns out we're all secretly professional dancers, which made the process extremely easy and not at all time consuming."
