Never judge a book by its cover or indeed a band by the implications of its title. Despite a name that suggests something more edgy and aggressive, Michael Featherstone, the man driving this musical vehicle actually does a neat line in slick pop rock. It deftly wanders between modern post-genre pop blends and the new pop quest of the post-punk era.
Divided confidently wanders the pop-rock divide, pulling at infectious synth threads from one side and adding enough rock drive and beat from the other to take things into some brilliantly playful and dynamic realms. The result is a mature but accessible song built on sharp beats and a groovesome rhythm, a sweet yet wonderfully understated chorus and more hooks than a Peter Pan convention.
