Apart from his sterling work as frontman for rock stalwarts Spoon, Britt Daniel “wanted to try some new things and go some places I hadn’t gone before.” So he teamed up with Wolf Parade guitarist Dan Boeckner and New Bomb Turks drummer Sam Brown to form Divine Fits. Joined by Alex Fischel on keys, the foursome crafted A Thing Called Divine Fits, which Rolling Stone calls “their psychedelic, synth-heavy LP.” Here, the band plays “Civilian Stripes” exclusively for The Bowery Presents Live channel on YouTube.
In a room at New York City’s Ace Hotel, the guys in Divine Fits discuss the music their family listened to, meeting one another and when they knew the band would be just fine.
