"Just as bewitching as incredibly radiant, Divisionists' music is for dreamers, idealists, and those who hope for a better world! They impress the listener with sounds like a sweet and velvety caress".
Divisionism: the characteristic style in the Neo-Impressionist modern art movement
Divisionist: one of the political factions in Beat Poet William S. Burroughts’ Naked Lunch (those who occupy 'a midway position' who 'literally divide' yet 'live in fear of a replica revolution').
London's Divisionists have one of the catchiest songs I've heard all year. "Say Can You" is a huge 90s throwback, in the best possible way. It's like a forgotten mid-90s power pop gem, like a cross between Polaris and Matthew Sweet. The verses and choruses are catchy enough to make this song good, but it's the guitar solos that come in like a second vocalist and truly steal the show. The guitar is just this perfect swirling persona that comes in and then fades away. Each time it returns, it's even fuzzier and more riveting than the last. "Say Can You" is a must listen.
Fronted by Brendan Quinn (guitarist/ vocalist for the legendary cult psychedelic/space-rock pranksters, Abunai!), Divisionists’ style encompasses psych, power pop, and reimagined traditional folk ballads, all with a loud and memorable rock influence.
They have shared stages with artists such as recording artist Alex Monk (of Smeraldina-Rima Records), Swiss garage-psych legends Roy and the Devil’s Motorcycle, and Pete “Bassman” Bain (ex-Spaceman-3 and ex-Darkside).
