Alternative trio Skies Collide have released the music video for “This Divide”, the third single taken off their recently released debut album The Dream & The Lie. Showcasing the perspective of one individual who is in a relationship that is tearing apart due to a lack of communication and is eager to fix the problem, “This Divide” is an enchanting, memorable and atmospheric sing-along anthem that flows cohesively alongside the emotion invested into the lyrics by utilizing minimalistic electronic pulse, before subtly building to a remarkable chorus that identifies Skies Collide as a formation that consistently delivers music, which listeners have the opportunity to connect with in their own, personal ways.
In a collective statement, Skies Collide provides additional details about the influence behind “This Divide”: “This track was one of the first songs we wrote for the album and it’s also one of the only ones that stayed mostly the same throughout the production and recording process. It came to us so naturally and out of all the songs we’ve written so far, it feels the most quintessentially “our sound”. The song and video represent the idea of leaving something negative behind and attempting to move forward on your journey. The drive is sombre though, It’s not that kind of liberating, emotionally unchaining moving on – it’s more about the feelings you probably shouldn’t be running from; the things you might not have properly dealt with yet. The lyrics come from a place of feeling like you have so much to say and so much to tell someone but you’re afraid to let it out and make yourself vulnerable. It’s about having your guard up when you’ve been hurt badly.”
