Perhaps it took a while in the making, but it’s finally here. Divisions are presenting their latest self-titled full-length album that unquestionably eradiates with a specific ambiance. For those who might not know, Divisions are an English indie rock group based in London that evolves with each new recording. Since their beginnings, Divisions released several releases such as Distort And Merge EP, a single named Even Now, a debut-full length album Distance Over Time, a live performance mini-album The People Vs. (Live at 93 Feet East), Constants EP, Time Taken, and Divided. Therefore, their most-advanced material also represents their second full-length recording, which will suit those listeners who’re looking out for a more detailed alternative rock performance.
Divisions deliver ten brand new compositions, heavily decorated by brilliant ideas, intelligent arrangements, and extraordinary musicianship. The group heavily promoted this material with two singles that claimed positive feedback from the media but wait until you hear the entire record. The group undoubtfully articulates in such a characteristic manner, which will even suit those who’re not into these particular genres. Besides the dominant presence of intelligently performed alternative rock, you may also hear some indie rock, indie pop, post-rock, shoegaze maneuvers that are unquestionably decorating the performance of the entire group even more. Right with the initial beats and melodies of this self-titled material, you’ll notice Divisions are more than just experienced musicians who decided to record another alternative rock album.
This material resonates with vividly hearable echoic ambiance, one of the main characteristics of post-rock music. The guitars contain generous dosages of reverb, delay, and echo, but their instrumentations are not overwhelmed by these effects. Both guitar channels are emitting exquisite melodies, harmonies, themes, arpeggios, and other sonic delicacies. The profoundly dynamic rhythm section gives all the necessary support to these melodic maneuvers through delicate rhythmic sequences and warm-sounding basslines. Keyboards are constantly lurking around throughout the album, and contributing with background ambiance, leads, or detailed accentuations. Lead vocals are flawlessly balancing between lows and highs but mostly range from mids to high-pitched notes. These chants are coming to these orchestrations like a cherry on the top. Every ingredient is well-combined in this polyphonic collection, which will definitely leave you speechless.
Divisions thoroughly planned each segment of their exceptional brand new material, which you certainly don’t want to miss if you’re into contemporary alternative or indie rock music. The album is available on a limited edition compact disc, housed in beautiful digipack packaging. However, this self-titled masterpiece is also available on streaming services such as
Spotify and Bandcamp.
