The Divys - dubbed “The Dynamic Duo” by Robbie Daw for Instinct Magazine - are a Philadelphia-based band made up of William Rule on vocals and keyboards, and Kliffee Cee on guitars and backing vocals. Formed in 2004, they resurrected the sound made famous in the 1980s - New Wave. Along the way, they have won several awards, including the 2006 John Lennon Songwriting Contest for best electronic song. Their music was featured in Dance Dance Revolution, as well as multiple network television shows such as Nashville, Grandfathered, Flash, and The Carrie Diaries.
The Divys' sound is unabashedly retro... the percussive pulse of early Depeche Mode, the cold synth texture of Gary Numan... and the lyrical swagger of Billy Idol.
The Divys, a Philadelphia duo, won Best Electronic Song in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (2006) for 'Freddie Are You Single?'... Their song 'Mirror Queen' is the theme song for local Philadelphia show 'In Bed With Butch.'
Philadelphia voted this alternative group #1 at the recent Rainbow Awards!
