NEW SINGLE FROM THE BLUE VAN, ”DIVINE” – RELEASED MAY 26, 2015

(27. maj 2015 12:41)

Latest bullet in the round of single shots from the Danish rockers, who are The Blue Van, is named "Divine”. Last year the band declared that "the album is a dead format” and that in future they would only release singles. Both to hold on to the elusive music users of the streaming generation but also to be able to experiment musically with sound and expression without being obstructed by the album format’s red thread.


And the 5th single straight, "Divine”, is no exception. The band was never afraid of adding modern elements to their patented retro rock and this time, especially on the rhythm side, some inspiration was drawn from both hip-hop beats and disco bass. A slightly more danceable sound than previously heard from the guys but still with a handplayed sound and a catchy guitar hook as stronghold.


Loosely inspired by the movie, ”Into The Wild” from 2007, ”Divine” is about escaping into the wilderness.


So very appropriately the ”Divine” video is recorded far out in the California desert. During the recordings, taking place in 100 degrees heat, both band and director experienced rather close encounters with excited rattlesnakes as well as curious coyotes. Luckily, neither band, animals or the beautiful co-star, Kathrine Kohl Thorbæk, suffered any harm apart from a slight sunburn.
