Divide – Last Words
Shortly after the release of their latest EP Embers, Glasgow’s Divide have revealed their music video for the track ‘Last Words’. The track itself was inspired by the book The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold, a story of a 14-year old girl who was raped and murdered. “The idea was to write a song from from the prospective of someone who has had their life taken from them, that really sparked something in me. To give them a voice, to give people who are lost in life the message that it’s ok to feel that way but you need to keep fighting,” shares vocalist Nicole Mason.
