Diver – Kites (Strings Attached)
There is something gently melodic, yet majestic about the music of Diver. They place a heavy emphasis on extremely well played mostly acoustic instruments, with seemingly years of carefully and patiently honing their considerable craft.

Band: Their music is affective, simple and honest. Emotions are realized powerfully, still quiet, with acoustic instruments and through a variety of different voices. The essence of their music is the contradiction between harmony and their lyrics dealing with insecurity and disorientation. Their songs are swirling around the difficulty to fulfill other people’s expectations,still trying to be true to oneself and about the discrepancy between overwhelming emotions and rational realizations.
