Album Review: Hayden Thorpe – Diviner

Posted on 17 May 2019 at 7:30am

Having separated, Hayden Thorpe then had his mid-life crisis: following the lengthy divorce between the Wild Beasts singer and the band which he’d called home since he was a teenager he headed off to California to, in his own words, ‘lose my mind’.

Whilst some of the past came back with him, not all of the man he was before it seems did. Part of the reason for this trip was to break free from inertia, as contractual obligations had meant that there was a year between taking the joint decision to split one of Britain’s most successful indie bands and an actual parting of ways. When it was done the quartet scattered, only Thorpe remaining in London.

Heading back to his home rehearsal space immediately to begin work on the songs that would become Diviner, Thorpe realised straight away that if anything needed paying back in earnest it was what was owed to the sliver of himself that had always remained outside of the Wild Beasts bubble.

Thorpe isn’t the first artist whose response to being outside the tent for the first time in decades is to strip everything back musically and shed some skin; Diviner was written mostly at the piano, and at its core rarely employs much more than that, unobtrusive guitars and a voice now pushed right to the forefront on a batch of tactile, vivid songs.
