Portland, Oregon is a creative hub.
Situated in the Pacific North West, the city has gained a reputation for liberal thought, as a place where creating art, writing a novel or completing an album are not just possible but required.
Ages And Ages call Portland home, and their new album 'Divisionary' came together in this atmosphere. Creating waves Stateside, the band recently outlined plans for their first ever European tour.
Alongside this, the group are set to draw new single 'Divisionary (Do The Right Thing)' from the album. A slow burning piece, each lyric, each line seems pointed, astute with Ages And Ages displaying all their maturity.
Shooting a video for the single, you can watch it first on Clash. Ages And Ages:
"This song is about keeping yourself right even amidst darkness and negativity. For the video, we decided to portray this struggle through the story of a bunch of young kids who set out to make things right, but lose a part of themselves along the way. They may have started off on the same path and with good intentions, but their struggle reveals varying agendas and leads them in very different directions."
Watch it now.
