From Foundations Too Future . . .
Born out of a love for synthpop industrial and electronic music DREAMS DIVIDE decided to make its voice heard and give the lovers of these genres a new musical addiction.
DREAMS DIVIDE founders DAVID CROUT (vocals / synth / programming) and GEM DAVISON (vocals / synth) began writing this synthpop tinged electronic madness in early 2009. After presenting some demo versions of their early songs to a local promoter, they were invited to play as part of a showcase at the Salisbury International Arts Festival. The public reaction was astounding for this new project, so work began in earnest on creating a full length album.
With musical influences ranging from the early electronic pioneers such as DEPECHE MODE GARY NUMAN and KRAFTWERK, to the more recent stylings of AND ONE NINE INCH NAILS and PROJECT PITCHFORK, plus their own proven creative skills musical or otherwise all the elements that make DREAMS DIVIDE promise variety within an uncompromising electronic frame .
Both seasoned performers in all types of media, between them sharing stages in various guises with world class acts such as CLAN OF XYMOX, KMFDM, COVENANT, PENDULUM, NICK OLIVERI ( ex - QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE ), DIE SO FLUID, and NASHVILLE PUSSY to name but a few .
DREAMS DIVIDE has the means experience and stagecraft necessary to present a powerhouse live show which any world class act could be proud of. With an ever growing fan base a fantastic debut album to savour and a live experience to dazzle DREAMS DIVIDE are a force to be reckoned with.
July 2011 saw DREAMS DIVIDE sign a record deal with GLORY & HONOUR RECORDS, with this the band have gathered momentum in a very short time and are released the debut album “Puppet Love” in early November 2011.
"... Dreams Divide have rapidly made a strong impression. Not least because in front man David Crout and synth player and vocalist Gem Davison, they have two of the most attention grabbing voices that have been heard on the UK alternative electronic scene for quite a while...
The question was always going to be: could both these strong recorded vocals be delivered in a live setting. Tonight Dreams Divide provided the answer in no uncertain terms: you bet your ass they can! Clearly fired up and energised to be opening for such a legendary name as Covenant, not only did they both unquestionably acquit themselves vocally, but their performance overcame any presentational limitations of the typical up front lead vocalist and solo synth player setup. Crout never stopped pacing around the stage, sometimes, with the occasional skip(!), bearing a passing resemblance to VNV Nation’s Ronan Harris. He did everything within his power to work up an already big crowd and they responded massively...." (DSO Audio)
