‘Eat My Words’ marks the final taster of ‘Heady Metal’, the upcoming EP from Divorce – out November 17th via Gravity.
Following the success of their debut EP, and the resulting trip around the live circuit, Divorce have been steadily opening the door to their approaching sophomore EP ‘Heady Metal’. As the final insight into the project, ‘Eat My Words’ is a mission statement of sorts, and a masterclass in Divorce’s signature style.
The Nottingham quartet have a knack for making you feel like you’re sitting in on something you shouldn’t be, and with its candid honesty and anecdotal musings, ‘Eat My Words’ is no different. Felix Mackenzie-Barrow (vocals/guitar) explained that: “The song scrutinises my emotional response to situations in which I’ve been uncomfortable; and where I’ve come away from those situations with frustrations about the things I’ve left unsaid, sometimes for better, sometimes not”.
Strongly spearheaded by the co-vocals of Tiger Cohen-Towell (vocals/bass) and Felix Mackenzie-Barrow, the single has a conversational quality reminiscent of the immersive back and forth of classic rock giants. Produced by Matt Peel and mixed by Grammy-nominated producer Catherine Marks, the intimate interaction between the vocals is also present in the genre-mingling instrumentation that boasts a sweet blend of country and indie-folk, swinging in and out of grandeur accordingly. ‘Eat My Words’ welcomes the complexities of emotion, and ultimately, there is both comfort and relief to be found in Divorce’s ability to accept, reflect upon, and work within the bumpy landscape of the imperfect.
