Hear Divine Fits' first single

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

As revealed last month, Divine Fits is a new supergroup featuring Spoon's Britt Daniel, Wolf Parade's Dan Boeckner and Columbus drummer Sam Brown (New Bomb Turks, Gaunt, The Sun, RJD2, Anna Ranger, You're So Bossy). Now the band has unveiled their first single, and it's a minimal midnight synth slink fronted by soulful blathering from Boeckner about how his love is real until it isn't anymore. (Or possibly it's Boeckner and Daniel together; I never noticed how similar their voices were until I had to figure out which one was crooning on this song). Merge Records will release "My Love Is Real" as a 7-inch with B-Side "I Was Born In a Laundromat" on July 31, but you can hear the track now by liking Divine Fits on Facebook and clicking the "Stream + Pre-Order" tab.
