Dick Diver

Taking their name from the main character in F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel Tender Is the Night, indie rock quartet Dick Diver formed in Melbourne, Australia in 2008. Drawing inspiration from the emotionally rich pop of fellow countrymen the Go-Betweens, as well as the brainy guitar wrangling of Television and Yo La Tengo, guitarists Rupert Edwards and Alistair McKay, drummer Steph Hughes, and busy bassist Al Montfort (who also played with Total Control, Lower Plenty, and UV Race at different times) released their first EP, Arks Up, in 2009. It began their relationship with Chapter Records and with producer Mikey Young of Total Control and Eddy Current Suppression Ring. Edwards and McKay wrote most of the songs on Arks Up, but on their first full-length album, the whole band chipped in with writing and singing. Recorded in an old homestead in High Country, Victoria, New Start Again was released in 2011 and saw Dick Diver building on the Australian following their EP had garnered, while sending their sound out to the world.

The band's next album, 2013's Calendar Days, was recorded at a beach house on Phillip Island, and when released received warm reviews. Soon afterward, the band set off on a worldwide tour that included slots at big festivals (Laneway, Golden Plains) in Australia. That same year they did a split single with Lower Plenty for Matador's Singles Going Home Alone series, then in July of 2014 issued a single ("New Name Blues") for Fruits & Flowers. Keeping with tradition, their next record was recorded in another out-of-the-way locale, this time a former sheep-shearing shed in Apollo Bay, Victoria. Released in early 2015, Melbourne Florida was their first album to be released by a U.S. label, Trouble in Mind, as well as by Chapter. Thanks to the album's success and Dick Diver's growing popularity in the States, due in part to their extensive touring for the record, Trouble in Mind reissued their first two album there in early 2016. ~ Tim Sendra

More bands should name themselves after characters from F. Scott Fitzgerald novels. Good sound too. Nearly impossible to sound as great as Tender Is The Night though.
