New Division – Opium

As a huge fan of 80s acts like The Cure, Joy Division, and Depeche Mode, I suppose it’s not much of a surprise then that I’m absolutely enamored with New Division

Drawing heavily from the New Wave revivalist tradition, these lads from California drench every song with the moodiness of The Cure while simultaneously throwing in plenty of danceable synths. Imagine the electronic exuberance of Cut Copy mixed with the dark atmospherics of Interpol.

Listen to “Opium,” my personal favorite from their debut LP Shadow, which is out now and available for download from their bandcamp.
