Support Shitney Beers
Teenage Angst has paid off well, DIVES are now ready to have it all. DIVES know their capabilities, their strengths and the songs they want to write. On their first album, titled Teenage Years Are Over, they now become an essential integrant within Europe’s big indie-bands.
With their first EP, DIVES got off to a dream start: in Dresden they played in front of 12.000 people, headlined the Viennese Popfest, toured with Courtney Barnett, accompanied the Vengaboys at the Viennese Ballhausplatz and played various shows as support of established artists (Franz Ferdinand, Bilderbuch). Three years have passed since their formation at pink noise Girls Rock Camp and ever since, they not only toured Central and Eastern Europe, crashed big stages and important industry festivals (Reeperbahn festival, c/o pop), but also did not back away from well-known underground venues (8mm Bar, Ostpol Dresden).
Attitude meets a musical sense for melodies and song dynamics. DIVES accompany surf-garage-pop with emancipated lyrics. Dora de Goederen, Tamara Leichtfried & Viktoria Kirner don’t shy away from speaking their mind. There’s no crying over missed chances, no pointless vanity and no fake pretending for the sake of being part of something.
