Divers captures the freedom of youth with dreamy new single ‘That’s Time Flying’

With swirling, hazy guitars & their now signature reverb-laced vocals, DIVERS have today unveiled the next single in the build up to their ‘Economy Class’ EP, the dreamy & wistful ‘That’s Time Flying’.

Pulling from their own amorous feelings of youth, DIVERS were inspired by the moments of love & joy they had, surrounded by friends.

The chorus of ‘That’s Time Flying’ is however carrying a darker underlying message; exploring the relationship between substances and the user, treading through moments of deception to the true emotions hidden beneath, alongside difficult come-downs.

With their forthcoming EP ‘Economy Class’ set now for a Friday, August 18th release, the band still have 3 tracks left to unveil, with previous single ‘Security’ pairing with ‘That’s Time Flying’ as the lead tracks from a diverse and exploratory release.

Recorded out of their home studio in Melbourne, DIVERS paired with ARIA award-winning  producer Anton Hagop (Powderfinger, Birds of Tokyo, Missy Higgins) to mix the EP, with mastering by George Georgiadis (Tyne-James Organ, Last Dinosaurs).

The release will be the band’s first extended body of work released through Australian label Domestic La La (Dear Settle, Teen Jesus & The Jean Teasers, LOSER), after being hand-picked by Violent Soho’s James Tidswell for the roster.

Accompanying ‘That’s Time Flying’ is a music video, produced & filmed by the band at ‘DIVERS HQ’ in Forest Hill. It sees DIVERS influenced by 80’s space exploration, with footage from the moon landing & space missions playing in the background, whilst the band dressed as ironic astronauts perform & dance in the foreground. An almost psychedelic & zero gravity feeling is present throughout the clip.

“We tried a ‘less thinking, more doing’ approach with this clip. We had a really small window of time before everyone went away overseas on holiday, so on a Tuesday night after work we headed to Spotlight with a 100 dollar budget. We ended up buying 4 orange jumpsuits, 4 buckets and some tin foil. Took it all back to HQ, knocked up a green screen in the band room and sent it to the moon.” DIVERS

DIVERS combines multi-instrumentalists Ben Bray, Scott McQuilten, Jake Green and Tom Evans, with video calls & a joint love of music leading to the band signing with Domestica La La. Support from tastemaker triple j (Home & Hosed), as well as triple j Unearthed (Rotation, Top 5 Tracks of The Week) would follow, alongside praise from Pilerats Beat Magazine.

The band have now accumulated 125,000+ streams across DSP’s, with their listeners continuously on an uptick.

Sharing stages recently with The Terrys, Teen Jesus & The Jean Teasers, STUMPS, Jebediah & stacks more,  DIVERS are not only a bands favorite band, but are swiftly growing a reputation as one of Melbourne’s finest guitar-led outfits, with comedian Aaron Gocs a supporter as well.

With more to come off of ‘Economy Class’, DIVERS are undoubtedly posed to light up Australia with their eclectic mix of influences from indie, rock, psych & a bit of everything in between.
