I was a little bummed when Wolf Parade went on indefinite hiatus, and even more bummed when Handsome Furs pulled the plug. Where would I hear the quirky pop mastery of Dan Boeckner? Fortunately, he has teamed up with Spoon’s Britt Daniel for an indie “supergroup,” Divine Fits.
The new band’s first single, “My Love Is Real,” picks up where Handsome Furs left off. It’s synth heavy and features Boeckner on vocals… we’ll see if Daniel’s influence is more prominent on subsequent releases. Stream it below or by liking the band’s facebook page:
A “My Love Is Real” 7″ with b-side “I Was Born in a Laundromat” will be released July 31st on Merge — preorder here. A debut album is a ways off, as the band are still recording with producer Nick Launay.
