Divided by Light is an eclectic but accessible combination of everything the band loves about music of the last 50 years and beyond. It is not meant to be an easy or casual listening experience, but one of depth that rewards engagement and patience on behalf of the listener. Based around a progressive rock sound but featuring a diverse array of influences, Divided by Light deals with the dark corners of the collective human consciousness. It is a piece of music that is aware of the fact that we humans are now connected constantly by technology and yet more isolated from each other than ever before. It is a psychedelic thrill ride through a dystopian nightmare that might just be a little too close to the reality that we are currently living in. Anyone looking for the next auto-tuned, over-processed, illuminati-sponsored piece of musical candy to digest should stay far away, for this simply isn’t your music. But for those who are looking for a little bit of proof that people are still making thoughtful, artistic rock music that takes listeners on a journey capable of both entertaining and enlightening, Divided By Light may be just the thing they need.
