Nottingham indie sensations Divorce release second EP‘Heady Metal’, out now via Gravity/EMI Records. Newly-confirmed to support The Vaccines on their mammoth spring 2024 UK tour, the alt-country figureheads’ thrilling ascent continues to show no signs of slowing, with the first singles from their extended release (‘Birds’ and ‘Scratch Your Metal’) landing on the BBC 6 Music playlist, and current single ‘Eat My Words’ already becoming a fixture on the airwaves.
Spearheaded by enigmatic songwriting duo Tiger Cohen-Towell and Felix Mackenzie-Barrow, ‘Heady Metal’ signals a closer collaboration than ever between the two bandmates, providing a striking portrayal of insecurity and questioning whether to trust oneself or your new surroundings. The character studies of debut EP ‘Get Mean’ are gone; in their place more vulnerable narratives about grappling with identity amid the new pressures they were experiencing following their phenomenal rise.
With a full UK tour lined up to coincide with their EP release, preceded by a run of support dates alongside Willie J Healey, the thriving four-piece’s budding live reputation has certainly attracted considerable fanfare over the twelve months.
