Watch Divine Fits’ Searing ‘Ain’t That the Way’ and ‘Chained to Love’ Lyric Videos

Divine Fits aint that the way

Divine Fits’ sharply sculpted new single will be available physically next week, and now its two songs are freely streaming, too, accompanied by approriately intense, nostalgia-tinged visuals. “Ain’t That the Way” and “Chained to Love” will be available as a double A-side vinyl 12-inch single on July 23 via Merge. The tracks came out digitally last month, and the group co-fronted by Britt Daniel and Dan Boeckner performed a medley of the songs on Conan. We’ve previously described the Boeckner-led “Chained to Love” as “an uptempo song with bristling guitar and a pounding rhythm section,” and Daniel-led “Ain’t That the Way” as “all muscular chords and clipped, terse ferocity.” Both are more of the punchy, streamlined excellence we’ve come to expect after last year’s A Thing Called Divine Fits, and now you can watch them, with lyrics, below.
