CD REVIEW: DEVINE ELECTRIC – Devine Electric

Devine Electric cover

It opens with a buzzsaw Harley riff and a Sunset Strip vocal, and – firm believers in the ‘old is the new new’ adage – continues in bold n’ brassy style through nine raunchy tracks of retro rock full of riffs and hooks vying for well-deserved attention.

Some will allege Devine Electric are thirty years too late to the party, but they’re missing the point: this is good, old fashioned rock n’ roll favoured by millions over the bland pop and hipster dross currently in vogue with those who consider themselves trendsetters.

Rock n’ roll was never meant to be trendy – just organic, powerful and full of emotion. Devine Electric nail it on every front.

The Sydney four-piece aren’t afraid to try a few different seasonings along the way: check out the excellent sax solo on Good To See You Again, although their Guns n’ Roses fixation goes a little too far at times (on Don’t Feel Like Home, especially).
