Indie-rock post punk band Divine Fits is a melting pot of epic artists – fronted by Spoon’s Britt Daniel and featuring Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade) and Sam Brown (New Bomb Turks).

In early 2012, they met up in LA, locked themselves in a tiny recording studio and produced their first album together – basically forming a superband – yet there’s no clashing of egos, everyone is real, organic and brings their own elements to the table, if their debut album, A Thing Called Divine Fits, is any indication. The direction of the album is bolder and rougher around the edges than that of Spoon. A Thing Called Divine Fits has more of a new age British post punk undertone than the alt-rock we expect from Britt Daniel. Daniel has added a creatively flirty injection to this album with syntho-electric backgrounds and raspy jagged lyrics which were not huge components of past work. “Flaggin a Ride” is a catchy, enjoyable and approachable single, which I feel is one of the highlight tracks of the album. I’m interested to see if this superband will outlive the hype and stereotypical 2-album run and maintain interest of listeners with future albums to come.
