Review: "Delora" - New Divide

Toxic relationships happen a bit too often in our society. It's easy to get attached to someone when they pretend to be someone they're not. After a while you start to notice things about them that you didn't before; things that would be a deal breaker for you if you weren't already head over heels in love with them. It's hard to break free from their web once you're in it. They manipulate you into become who they want you to be until you don't know who you are anymore. You stop doing the things you love and you stop hanging out with your friends just to satisfy the wants and needs of the person who is supposed to love and care for you. 'Delora' by New Divide is the characterization of all the people out there who love to be in control of their partner.

'Delora' is haunting and cinematic experience. The indie pop and alternative rock influenced soundscape puts you into a hypnotic and ethereal state. It's the perfect song to lay in bed, put your headphones on, close your eyes and blast when you're in the angry stage of a breakup. The darkness of this track carries throughout, eventually feeling even more distorted and heavy by the time you get to the outro. This song encourages you to get all your frustration out as lead singer Charlotte's inviting vocals has you singing along "why can't I be your drug instead".

New Divide is an indie band based in Manchester, England. Inspired by the likes of The 1975, Pale Waves and Wolf Alice, the trio released their first single 'ALL I AM' in 2022. Their impressive debut gained attention from BBC Radio, BCC Introducing and Amazon Radio, leading them to begin performing live shows across their country. Now after their very active year in 2022, playing numerous festivals and notable venues such as Gullivers, Bread Shed and The Night & Day, New Divide is back with their first single of 2023, 'Delora' and are ready to rock your world.
