Boston slowcore outfit Horse Jumper of Love stopped by the Paste Studio at our Atlanta HQ to perform a live session in support of their recent album So Divine, out now on Run For Cover Records.
So Divine is their debut for Run For Cover, and it follows their 2017 self-titled first album. In our full review, Paste called So Divine, “the perfect record to listen to on headphones when you’re laying in bed at night, lonely and staring at the ceiling, trying to decide what shade of white said ceiling is.”
Frontman Dimitri Giannopoulos and drummer Jamie Vadala-Doran performed stripped-back, slightly different arrangements of four tracks: “Bagel Breath” and “Spaceman” from their debut LP and “Ur Real Life” and “Stray Dog” from So Divine.
interviewed Giannopoulos about So Divine back in June, and he talked about his songwriting style (“A lot of the songs come from these really minor details or memories. Like, ‘Why the hell does this still resonate with me now?’”) and how his stint as a museum security guard influenced his lyricism.
