This is The New Division. A LA based quartet, who you may be forgiven for thinking are just another indie-pop-synth-depeche mode-come-joy division inspired band amongst the wave of similar artists to manage to strike it lucky. Well they are, but they’re also quiet good. It’s a sound I just can’t shake, especially the song KIDS (below).
I first heard this tune on a GoPro film, and I immediately had to have it on my walk to work playlist. It’s definitely like something I’ve heard before but the intro of the track is so addictive – conjuring up images for a great movie montage. It’s on repeat.
