Mayo’s Subdivine announce arrival with excellent single and EP

Mayo trio Subdivine have shared Lone Girl, the first single from their excellent debut EP. Balancing tightly wound rhythms with downtrodden vocals and raw lyricism, the song channels the drama and energy of The Smiths with flourishes of fifties-inspired instrumentation.

The accompanying self-titled EP touches on themes of love, isolation and identity set against a backdrop of music that fuses influences from Kansas, Steely Dan, Sam Fender, Thin Lizzy, Johnny Marr and Frank Zappa. It is a strong offering from the young band and showcases a great deal of musicality and chemistry – for an act that have only been together for five months, this is quite impressive indeed.

Music from the west of Ireland
