„Indieheroes such as the Shop Assisstants, Feelies [...] with influences of bands such as La Sera or Waxahatchee“.
Dora De Goederen, Tamara Leichtfried and Viktoria Kirner first met at the Austrian Girls Rock Camp in 2016. In spring 2017 they've recorded their self-titled mini album with Austrian musician and producer Wolfgang Möstl (Mile Me Deaf, Sex Jams, Clara Luzia, Melt Downer ...). This gem was released on Siluh Records in Fall 2017, including six songs as fresh and innovative as DIVES themselves. Confidence and passion are what let them finish their first album that fast and resulted in DIVES rising to a fixpoint in the Austrian Indie scene.
Their debut mini album is not a subtle statement, it's an eye-turner, asking listeners to come along. During their short journey, DIVES already played with artists such as L.A. Witch. La Luz is another Band their sound resembles. There's also some 80s vibe going on, while listening to DIVES associations to the early Black Tambourine or Altered Images pop up. Still, DIVES are contemporary at the pulse of modern Indie music. Since its release, their debut has been well-received by the press. German SPEX magazine sees DIVES in one line with „Indieheroes such as the Shop Assisstants, Feelies [...] with influences of bands such as La Sera or Waxahatchee".
