Divisionists – ‘Say Can You’
Jon Kelly, March 24th 2017
If you have a giddy imagination and a good set of potato ears, this fizzy London troupe will help remind you that noisy guitar histrionics and sunny indie pop melodies can often resurrect hazy, warm feelings not experienced since the late summer of 1992. The breezy, urgent harmonies of ‘Say Can You’, track one of twelve blistering busters on new album ‘Daybreak’, could even induce raw visions of Norman Blake’s abandoned pit pony – last seen wandering the byways of Britain just before the outbreak of Britpop. You don’t have to like animals to appreciate this track, but you’ll certainly make horsey happy by stroking his memory.
