MIDNIGHT DIVIDE - "Who Do You Think That You Are?" SINGLE REVIEW
LA-based indie rockers, Midnight Divide are gearing up to release their third EP Weapons Grade Amnesia due out this fall and is being produced and mixed by front man Austen Moret at his Hollywood studio, Silverside Recording. The band just released a new single from the forthcoming EP entitled: “Who Do You Think That You Are.”
On the track, lead vocalist/guitarist, Austen Moret shares, “Of anything we’ve done to date, this new record has felt like the most unadulterated version of what we want to sound like. It’s this blend of all our favorite real rock elements (live drums, bass, guitars, etc.), but it’s got this shiny, synthy, almost pop-like sheen over it. … it feels like we’ve pulled off the mask on who we are … and it feels really damn good.”
WHO DO YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE is a trippy, aesthetically pleasing tune that bounces reminiscent echoes of the band's influences from all over the indie rock and alternative rock spectrum. The tune has the pop-rock feel of an Imagine Dragons tune with it's straight forward sound while at the same time digs deeper and reels you in with the "rock-steady", reminiscent sound of Muse's "Uprising". At times, splashes of bands like Queens of the Stone Age and The Raquetteurs come to mind, all the while not diverting too hard left from the band's original alternative/indie-rock sound.
The band’s debut EP Embrace The Wave was released in 2015, charting on the CMJ 200 as high as #149. The follow up EP Dichotomy dropped in 2017, and subsequently caught the ears of major music supervisors, leading to placements and TV syncs of “Torn” and “Animal Eyes” on TNT’s Animal Kingdom. “Fireline,” the lead single off of Dichotomy was placed on season 9 of the critically acclaimed Showtime series Shameless, with the band’s 2018 single “Let It Be Known” featured on the same show in early 2019.
