Who needs a quality alt-rock/new wave break-up banger? You’re sorted – Adelaide’s Mogerlaine deliver the goods with newbie The Divorcee. A ‘cutting commentary on the bad post-break up behaviour that so often takes over lives and blows out uncontrollably into public space’, WildnFree should be feeling sad and sorry but The Divorcee is far too full of pace and promise to be all that devo about the rejection, incompatibility and vitriol. Fresh out of SA’s solar-powered Island Studios, The Divorcee is full of clever hooks, fiery beats and shifting scenes.
Throw off your shitty relationship shackles and sing it proudly along with front man Nicholas Pipe – “I’m a divorcee. I’m a divorcee.” At least you tried, right? At least you had the chance to fuck it up, and didn’t need a postal vote to give you permission. Silver linings!
Let’s welcome these fine matrimonial fuck ups to Melbourne for their launch shows late next week at The Last Chance Rock & Roll Bar and The Tote. Details below.
