Considering our very British obsession with the weather, it has been quite some time since we last mentioned the various changes in climate, conditions and temperature. Thankfully Glastonbury based trio Dive In are here to bring us back into the world of meteorological references with the title track from their forthcoming EP, “Eighteen”.
If, like us, you have recently been battered and buffeted by gale force winds, lashed by torrential and horizontal rainstorms, bombarded with hailstones and generally set upon with a wrathful vengeance by Mother Nature, Dive In could be just what you need.
Like a blitzkrieg of light blasting through the leaden skies, “Eighteen” is a funfair of high-octane melodies, helter skelter beats and whizzing walzter electronics. It is eye squintingly bright and euphoric, all summer sun and festival ready. Which is particularly appropriate, given that the band say the song was inspired by watching the preparations for their home village’s mega famous musical extravaganza.
Who knows, if they keep making tunes as uplifting as “Eighteen” they could be performing there themselves soon.
”Eighteen” will feature on the forthcoming EP of the same name, due for release on 25 May via Vagrant.
