The darkwave act Divine Shade, based in Lyon, France, has released a live session performance video of their single, “Stars”. The song was performed during their 2022 tour with Gary Numan. They have now released the video of an immersive live session at Polycarpe Studio in France.

The theme of the song is straightforward. It addresses the idea of our “inner child” disappearing as time goes by. Rémi Thonnerieux says, “I wrote this song to discuss the fact that love and resilience are the true paths to dreaming again.”

The band was established by musician Ren Toner in 2014 and offers a blend of styles and influences inspired by cold wave culture, with a hint of industrial and electronic music.

Here’s the video of the session.

“Stars” is available on all major digital platforms including Bandcamp as well.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
