Divide and Dissolve: Prove It

With a thick and unbearably heavy sound which surprisingly comes from only two people, Australia's Divide and Dissolve have already turned heads their way through their earlier releases and imposing live presence. The band has previously supported Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Deafheaven, Sumac, and Poliça on tour, and are amidst preparations for the release of their upcoming album, Gas Lit, arriving in 2020.

Droning, gratifyingly monotonous and all the way atmospheric, Prove It, is the first taste off the coming LP, a stately showcase of the band's dexterous heaviness.

"Prove It is an existential experience of remembrance," the duo states. "An exclamation that we would like to observe a radical shift in the current paradigm of complacency in regards to oppressive power dynamics, genocide, racism, white supremacy, and colonisation. Prove it aims to give weight and validation to voices that are traditionally misrepresented and criminalised before given a chance to speak. The undoing of anticipated failure and negative outcomes."

Divide and Dissolve are Takiaya Reed (saxophone, guitar, live effects) and Sylvie Nehill (drums, live effects). Prove It was produced by Ruban Nielson of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and its hazy accompanying video was filmed and edited by James Robinson.
