Based in Chicago with roots in Latin America, Divino Niño is a band known for their dreamy, psych-inspired pop. On their sophomore LP The Shady Sexyfornia Tapes, the Chicago band experimented with washed out reverb, dynamic vocal ranges, and lush soundscapes to create a truly unique 16 track album.
Now, they follow that LP with their new single "Don't Let it Die", a cover of Hurricane Smith's 1971 song. Originally written for John Lennon, Smith who engineered all of the Beatles' EMI studio recordings until 1965 decided to take the song for himself.
