Watch Divine Fits Kill It On Fallon

Remember last week, when Bob Mould played Letterman and knocked us all on our collective ass? Same deal here. Divine Fits, the new Britt Daniel/Dan Boeckner/Sam Brown trio, played Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Friday night and gave a tough, taut, locked-in rendition of their single “Would That Not Be Nice.” It’s not like the Frank Ocean moment on Fallon a couple of months ago; it won’t dominate music-blog chatter for the next few days. But it’s a shining example of a group of professionals seizing their televised moment and doing their goddam thing, and it will make you glad you stared at your computer for four minutes. Watch it below.

A Thing Called Divine Fits is out now on Merge, and it is very good.
