I am still not sure how I feel about the name of this band. But I do love this album. It was in heavy rotation in my car for a couple of months this year. These guys are form SF but now live in New York. Seems like most everyone I know has moved from SF in the last couple of years. This band is sort of all over the place. This is very dancey record for sure. It will sit nicely along with your Neon Indian, M83, Tanlines & Rapture albums. I actually liked this album a lot more than I thought I was going to. There are some seriously catchy songs on here.
Diver is a bold and sensual electronic pop record, swimming in melodies from early ‘90s R&B, UK 2-step Garage, and NY freestyle to ’80s nostalgia, wispy new age, boy-band innocence, and synth-driven Euro-trance.
