I primarily focus on full records, but there are great singles and videos floating around. Here is a thing you should listen to.
Western Divide – “The Reprise”
Western Divide is a great sounding punk rock band from California. They’ve got a sound that intersects with various flavors of the genre. There’s some Americana type stuff (think Gaslight Anthem et al.). There’s some indie rock moves in there too. It’s tied together with some vocals that come straight out of hardcore. It’s an interesting sound that the band does well.
“The Reprise” is a gruff, driving punk rock song with a great melodic heart. The song is about the moment when good parts of a new relationship finally overtake the bad feelings left over from an old one. Anyway, this video was released about a month ago. I move at the speed of “fuck, you’re just covering this now?”, so here it I guess.
Western Divide’s debut EP, Fall in Love to This, is out next week. The record is solid as fuck. Make sure to check it out.
