PRESS

“There’s a certain element of danger and exhilaration that Divine Kegel provides that other local bands don’t. That element of danger, spectacle and unpredictability is noticed in Kegel’s life performances. The band attempts to replicate the strength, precision and energy of old [and new] hip-hop beats… but applies them into a punk-rock context.”

La Solidaridad I is the first of three upcoming EPs by the band, in which they tackle racism, toxic masculinity, and the influence of matriarchal structures in marginalized communities — basically, how abuelitas and grandmas run shit.”

“But the highlight of the showcase had to be Divine Kegel. The two-man guitar and drum instrumental outfit made enough noise for a band triple its size. Look out for these guys.”
