article imageReview: Direct Divide's Bridges put you in the vocalist's shoes

By Wesley Butler     Apr 7, 2014 in Music
New York - Direct Divide is a band with diverse origins. Their music is a product of what they draw from our experiences and where they're from, whether it’s the lights and chaos of Las Vegas, the somber Seattle winters, the Sao Paulo beaches, or the burning hills
For Direct Divide, melody reigns supreme with a combination of powerful female vocals, electric violin, classically influenced piano and progressive guitar with a dose of heavy rock drums and bass.
A rather small album (containing only eight tracks), Bridges is an extravagantly produced collection of alternative and cinematic rock.
Writing on the Wall puts the listener in the same position as Razz, the vocalist. Its powerful and intense vocals transmit a vibe of despair and loneliness. Throughout the song, you may feel like you’re travelling down a country road on a cloudy day, gazing at farmhouses and empty fields, longing for something in your life that you know you probably will never get.
There’s such raw emotion projecting from Razz’s voice, placing you in a scene that contains heartache, distrust and anger.
This isn’t the only song where Razz projects immaculate vocals.
Persephone has a strong beginning that hooks the listener, as well as the calm before the storm. You think the track has ceased its creativity, but then it picks itself right back up again and hits you with its superb mixing and powerful vocals.
Bridges proves that quality outweighs quantity any day. Just because an album is small, doesn’t mean that it isn’t captivating. Sometimes having a lesser amount of songs that are produced carefully is better than having a gigantic list of tracks that didn’t have a lot of thought put into them.
