DIVINE FITS – BABY GET WORSE
For Fans of: Spoon, Wolf Parade… haha
If you ever wanted songs that sounded a little Wolf Parade, and a little Spoon, well then I have the perfect band. Divine Fits is a “supergroup” formed by Spoon lead singer Britt Daniels, and Wolf Parade co-frontman Dan Boeckner (and The New Bomb Turks drummer Sam Brown, but nobody knows him). And guess what, it sounds like Wolf Parade and Spoon! But just because the fusion of this supergroup did not create something grander than the sum of its parts is not really a let down. Because one: the two bands never sounded all that different (especially vocals), and two: both bands are good. My favourite of the batch, Baby Get Worse, is an ultra cool synth-assisted rock tune. Britt Daniels does his best Wolf Parade impression, with a chorus that would have fit nicely in Apologies to the Queen Mary, and sounds that are more nocturnal and emotional than Spoon really ever dares to go. The vocal pairing works perfectly, and although the song could have had a much better build at the end, it works as a great pop-rock track. But seriously, c’mon, let’s try to get more creative with our supergroups next time, maybe Death Grips and Death Cab.
