Divine Fits

Even after releasing their debut album last year Divine Fits have still found time to release new music.

Later in the month they’re releasing a new double single featuring new songs “Ain’t That The Way” and “Chained To Love.” Both songs are terrifically tight pieces of rock that have a crisp crunch to them. Britt sings on the former, with Dan taking the latter.

The single is release on July 23 via Merge. Stream both songs below.

Divine Fits debut album A Thing Called Divine Fits is also streaming at NPR. I was able to hear the album live when the band played at Schubas in Chicago for a Lolla after-show, and can tell you first-hand that the songs sounded great.

So head to NPR now and give the album a proper listen. It’s due out August 28 via Merge, so get it on while it’s hot.

Divine Fits @ Schubas (August 5, 2012)

Divine Fits Lolla after-party was only their 3rd show as a band. The band has limited their shows to venues in each of their hometowns to start. Lucky for me, a NY native, I was in the right place at the right time for their show.

Any band with Britt Daniel and Dan Boeckner on paper sounds ultra-promising. Live, it sounds as fruitful as you would have dreamed. The duo of them plus Sam Brown create a real powerful rock sound that lives to to the promise. Sure, some songs do sound like Spoon, and some sound a bit between Wolf Parade/Handsome Furs. But the best songs are when they come inbetween, creating a perfect balance of sounds that is heavy, smart, and authentic.

Their debut album A Thing Called Divine Fits isn’t out until the end of this month. It’s going to be a pretty strong album based upon what I heard last Sunday. From the songs I remember, look out for “Like Ice Cream” and “For Your Heart”, both of which you can watch below thanks to an awesome fan recorded video.
