D&C Press-Shot

A 9 piece alt-pop/hip-hop/funk outfit, who’ve quickly amassed a loyal following, epitomized by a sold-out 150 cap album launch gig in December 2016. 


With a refreshingly honest, original sound that has political (or rather, “anti-political”) messages, as well as themes of love, lust, growth, humour, and swag. Arrangements as tight as a hipster’s trousers, a powerful four-piece horn section, infectious grooves, catchy songs and high energy – Divide and Conker have been known to demolish dance floors in venues across on the festival scene.
