How many bands have you heard of from Stoke-On-Trent? The answer is probably few. This is about to change. Divenire are setting themselves a platform, releasing their debut EP ‘Wonderland’ to an audience of new listeners. Presenting themselves as ‘Goosebump inducing, emotionally powerful indie rock’, how far do the 4-piece live up to this expectation?
As far as emotional conveyance in the EP, ‘Captain of The Sea’ is an immensely strong contender. Storytelling is a side to Divenire merely scratched upon in single ‘Caravan’, but never truly delved into now. Weaving ambient guitars with echoic waves of backing vocals, the heart-wrenching story of a man and his fatal love and longing for the sea comes to life. Yet, if one issue is to be pointed out with the release, it is with the sound of the tracks. The depth is somewhat lost by the track’s compression, losing some of the layering. ‘S.I.A.R’ showing this issue the most and while not a major issue, is something to learn from.
Simplicity is a factor found in the EP, with ‘Old Oak Tree’ presenting what on the outside looks to be a simple backing. Simple drum patterns with repeating guitar leads graze the tracks outer layers. Yet, blend these separate components together and the track almost gives off an ambiance of colour. A talent emerging through this EP is the bands ability to balance simplicity and complexity. Presenting this in a way that doesn’t form a neutral middle-ground, but instead juxtaposes one another through each track. Take ‘Mercy’, a slow-burn bonus track with an opening simplicity, emerging into a layered, complex track in its prime. Like most tracks, the soft tones veiled in the undertones of the EP build the atmosphere around Wonderland release. Surrounded in what should be aura of sadness, the EP’s title track still offers an upbeat musical style in its chorus. But still adding a sub-conscious sadness in its depth.
Divenire have produced their own ‘Wonderland’ of storytelling, emotion and truth. There are improvements , but there are for any release. A relaxing listen with substance there should you wish to find it.

DIVENIRE – ORIGAMI – REVIEW

Divenire’s fourth single ‘Origami’ is set to drop on January 19th and with a trio of previous singles to live up to, does ‘Origami’ fit alongside all the other tracks produced?

The clear answer is yes. ‘Origami’ from its onset is a strong track that encompasses Divenire’s indie style while still differing in its own ways from their other songs. Within all of Divenire’s singles, there is a distinct tone to vocalist Dom Morgan that helps make all of Divenire’s tracks stand out a little more from everything else. ‘Origami’ brings this out. The build up to the bridge is interesting in this track. Instead of a slow build or the same layered track as heard before, instead, the track falls into a lower singled out guitar pattern, slowly filling up the quick transformation into an echoic, filling ending with both the vocals and backing spreading out in an even more atmospheric way than before.

Divenire are no strangers to making stand-out singles, from their first single ‘Caravan’ to most recent ‘Quaint Romance’, there is never a dull note and ‘Origami’ is no exception. All that’s next is to find out what great track the band are ready to produce next You can pre-order the single now!
