DIVVISIONS is a band whose sound blends classic alternative, New Wave and post-punk influences with modern pop's electronic sensibilities.
The group was formed in early 2016 when singer/guitarist Nik Farr left a previous project to pursue his own individual vision. He posted a self-recorded demo of the song "Starcrossed" online, seeking feedback. Drummer Rod McCarthy and bassist Sean McLaughlin quickly responded with a view to participating, and the three met for their first rehearsal that February.
The chemistry was undeniable as the trio blended their common influences, and amassed a full set of original material fairly quickly. Almost 12 months to the day that DIVVISIONS began practicing and writing together, the group played its first live performance.
The band's now-established sound draws from New Wave and post-punk aesthetics, filtering classic alternative through a modern electronic/pop sensibility. DIVVISIONS released their debut 5-song EP on May 3, 2019 to local acclaim. Michael Marotta of Boston-based music blog Vanyaland called Surrender "a landscape where guitar-pop and electronic-rock trade off in melodic bliss."
