Joplin, MO indie rock quartet Me Like Bees team up with Image Comics for their latest record titled "The River Divides". The gloomy aura of the song is reminiscent of a post-apocalyptic world where anything bad can and will probably happen. The deep guitar riff sounds like a forewarning of some sort. Lead singer Luke says he wrote the words to the song as he imagined salty, war-ready individuals who are forced to face the uncertainties of the world they live in now but still long for their former lives as a form of balance. His emotionally charged vocals and vivid lyrics "...take it or leave it, you're already dead/ but there is no morning, there's no time, we feel no pity in our city that the river divides..." brings the topic close to home.
The visuals directed by Jeremy Haun places the four man band (Pete Burton, Jake Bennett, Luke Sheafer and Lewis Brossman) walking through an unknown location. The scenes are spliced with shots of different landscapes reaffirming the doom and gloom atmosphere of the song.
