Dick Diver album launch tour!

New Start Again, the debut album by Melbourne foursome Dick Diver, combines widescreen Australian sweep, 70s New York edge with 90s indie-rock scratch, but transcends its influences to become something truly honest and exciting.Recorded with Eddy Current/Total Control’s Mikey Young at an old homestead in country Victoria, the album sees Dick Diver sharing songwriting, swapping instruments, and introducing new sounds like pedal steel, piano and slide guitar. The result is warm and understated, shot through with casual grace and supported by real backbone.

Now the band, who feature members of Boomgates, Total Control and the UV Race, are taking off around the country to launch the record, starting off with a free all-ages instore at Melbourne’s Polyester Records city store.
