REVIEW | Divide – Embers


Divide are a band that we have followed from the very beginning, ever since we worked with them at their Oran Mor debut gig back in 2014, and they have continued to evolve since then.

The last year, safe to say, has been a turbulent and testing one with constant line-up changes and the like, but nevertheless they have worked tirelessly at their craft, and they are ready to really show what they are made of with their much anticipated sophomore EP – Embers.

Before I Go serves as a fiery start that excels in the riff department, and just past the halfway point, they accelerate to a faster, more furious tempo. It is a similar case with Last Words, which runs off a snappy, fleeting pace, bolstered by high-impact drumming.

Lead single Catalyst is a song that has been garnering them much attention recently, and for good reason. This is an awesome, big-scale tune that just emanates adrenaline and features a catchy, hooking chorus and immense vocals.

Sink This City is equally as beefy, with the lyrics being the definitive factor here, and Embers itself is substantial in size with an emphatic rhythm and a fiercely direct performance from Nicole.

A tremendous follow-up record from one of Glasgow’s prominent rock acts that will surely kick-start their climb to grander success.
