Still – “Divinity”

Los Angeles-based act Still impress with “Divinity,” a captivating track from their upcoming debut EP. Exuding post-punk and dream-pop vibes reminiscent of Wild Nothing, with yearning guitar tones also reminiscent of The Smiths, “Divinity” succeeds with a convincing aesthetic. The one-minute mark sees an uptick in vocal presence, as jangly guitar lines adorn the sweeping vocals with an engaging mystique. The “I know,” vocal repetition plays especially well during the chorus, which transitions seamlessly from the verses. “Divinity” is a stellar track from a project I’m definitely excited to hear more from.
