Divide By Zero
Answer To No One (Jump Start Records)

By: Mike SOS

Divide By Zero is a Chicago-based quartet whose sanitized punk rock swagger goes 11 tracks on ANSWER TO NO ONE. Juxtaposing the dramatics of Thursday with the no nonsense aesthetic of Hot Water Music and Avail, tracks like "Bleeds and Bleeds" and "Timber" provide both sensitive musical excursions and passionate sing along parts. There's a distinctly mid-90's punk rock vibe to this band that is reminiscent of bands like Samiam and Ignite, and there's also a very emo-ish side to this band a la fellow statesmen Spitalfield, which should satisfy the teenage girl quotient. Nevertheless, just when you may start to give up on this band for being the next Fall Out Boy, they pull out crunchy, angst-ridden tracks like "Northern Lights" that reaffirms the fact that Divide By Zero has a lot more tricks up its sleeve than many of their peers.
