Nottingham-based outfit Divorce have returned this week with news of their ‘Heady Metal’ EP, set for release November 17th via Gravity/EMI, as they unveil the dazzling single ‘Scratch Your Metal’. Cinematic and deeply rooted in its 80's synth stratosphere, their latest effort is an explosion of soaring pop sensibilities and catchy melodies. Speaking about their second EP reveal, co-vocalist/bassist Tiger Cohen-Towell explained: “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”. Take a listen for yourselves below.
