The term ‘supergroup’ gets bandied around far too often in musical circles, so there’s no reason why it should be applied now to new trio Divine Fits, even if its membership is made up of Britt Daniel (Spoon), Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade/Handsome Furs) and Sam Brown (New Bomb Turks). As you’d expect from a band comprising two of the biggest names in indie circles and the drummer from an underground rock’n’roll powerhouse, Divine Fits marry scuzzy garage grooves with innate hooks and melody and emerge with a product as accessible as it is unique. Their debut album A Thing Called Divine Fits surprised many pundits when it seemingly dropped from nowhere a couple of months back, but the reviews have been stellar across the board and if the glowing reports back from the States about the Divine Fits live show are to be believed they’ve got the stage presence to match already, hardly surprising when you consider the calibre and experience of the bands’ members.
