Happy Diving - Electric Soul Unity (Topshelf Records) 2016
Happy Diving are loud and energetic, but with a very strong pop sensibility. Their previous albums – Big World (2014) and So Bunted (2015) – shown a band that was gradually evolving their sound and getting more matured as a band. Electric Soul Unity is as its name implies so – it’s electrifying, fast, cohesive and also has some tender moments. Their songwriting is much more neat and tidy, as it is quite exciting and with a vivacious and frenzied energy. During the listening of the 12 songs that fills this record, one just thinks how amazing and zippy these sludgy and fuzzy pop songs are and how this band can create such a great mood and energy on them. Electric Soul Unity is another high-energy discharge effort.
