"A song as inconsistent and surprising as yesterday’s election, The Great Wide Divide are back with their new clip for “Machines and Magnets”. The video for “Machines and Magnets” is a high energy piece that shines a spotlight not only on the ambitious, inventive sounds of GWD, but also of the fluid art of the human body. The energy of Tony and Daniel in this video is undeniable, but the addition of dancer Louis Gordon, whose performance of pop and lock dance, turns the video from a simple performance piece into a genre-stretching exercise. The band says “it was fun to work with another fantastic artist and blend styles without genre limitations.” It’s this sort of artistic leap of faith that has guided GWD from the beginning and has once again proved invaluable to their blossoming career. The inspiration is as real as it comes and never leaves the listener on the outside looking in. This is a journey for everyone involved." ~ RJ Frometta (editor at Vents Magazine)
"You guys knocked it out of the park with that album (RESET) and the re-imagined songs out of the Warner catalog is stunning. Absolutely, a fantastic job!!!." ~ David Georgeff (Warner/Chappell)
"My kid and I have been listening to the (The Great Wide Divide) album in the car Non-Stop... He really digs it too! Well done." ~ Dan Kanopka, (drummer of OkGo)
"Haven’t heard a voice like that since the Killers entered the scene. The Great Wide Divide station on Pandora is now a go-to for daily music listening. Live show is also a must-see. Loving this stuff!" ~ David Pryzgoda (Pandora Radio)
"On “Machines and Magnets”, The Great Wide Divide create a powerful sort of rock that builds off the blueprint laid by acts like Muse and Wolfmother. A more contemplative and thoughtful approach taken by the vocals spin this single out in a bold new direction. There is a great breadth of styles and sounds broached here, ensuring that listeners will continue to find nuance even five or ten listens in. While this cut concludes a bit after the four-minute mark, GWD are able to jam so many twists and turns in, that the resulting track feels like a ten-minute epic. Each element of GWD contributes to great effect during Machines and Magnets, making this a stellar, rock-radio-worthy effort." ~ James McQuiston (editor @ NeuFutur)
