Calling All Astronauts are a London based politically charged trio that mix electro, rock, post-punk and even dubstep into their sound, this eclectic range of influences has earned them an established fanbase in the alternative underground, this is all the more impressive when you consider that everything is done on their own terms via their own Supersonic Media imprint. Divisive is the bands tenth single, it is taken from their critically acclaimed 2016 album, Anti-Social Network, and will be released tomorrow, the 17th March 2017.
Divisive has a distinct influence from the likes of Marilyn Manson, Korn and The Prodigy, along with elements of Killing Joke, Rammstein and Ministry being audible in their DNA, this is the kind of loud stampy track that is made to be played to played in alternative nightclubs at 1am when the lights are strobing at full tilt. Divisive takes the best elements from the industrial and goth scenes of the late eighties and nineties, and drags them kicking and screaming out of the bat cave and onto the dancefloor, all the while retaining a defiant voice of protest against the establishment, what more could you ask for in a shade under four minutes?
Divisive is yet another example of why Calling All Astronauts have become a social media phenomenon, their reputation has seen them build up a following of over half a million followers on Twitter. Calling All Astronauts are a band that wear their influences on their sleeves, but they have taken them and brought them bang up to date, Divisive is a defiant dark dance floor filler that demonstrates that Calling All Astronauts are a band that are living up to the hype.
