With swirling, hazy guitars and their now signature reverb-laced vocals, Divers have today unveiled the next single in the build up to their ‘Economy Class’ EP, the dreamy and wistful ‘That’s Time Flying’.
Pulling from their own amorous feelings of youth, Divers were inspired by the moments of love and joy they had, surrounded by friends. The chorus of ‘That’s Time Flying’ is however carrying a darker underlying message; exploring the relationship between substances and the user, treading through moments of deception to the true emotions hidden beneath, alongside difficult come-downs.
With their forthcoming EP ‘Economy Class’ set for a Friday, August 18th release, the band still have three tracks left to unveil, with previous single ‘Security’ pairing with ‘That’s Time Flying’ as the lead tracks from a diverse and exploratory release. Recorded out of their home studio in Melbourne, Divers paired with ARIA award-winning producer Anton Hagop to mix the EP, with mastering by George Georgiadis. The release will be the band’s first extended body of work released through Australian label Domestic La La, after being hand-picked by Violent Soho’s James Tidswell for the roster.
Speaking of the new single, the band added, "With ‘That’s Time Flying’ we were trying to capture those feelings of our youth, going out to heaps of 21sts with your best mates and the pure love of those moments. The chorus is about the relationship one has with substances and how they deceive you in the moment and you think they’re your friend, but leave you feeling miserable the days following.”
Accompanying ‘That’s Time Flying’ is a music video, produced and filmed by the band at ‘DIVERS HQ’ in Forest Hill. It sees Divers influenced by 80’s space exploration, with footage from the moon landing and space missions playing in the background, whilst the band dressed as ironic astronauts perform & dance in the foreground. An almost psychedelic and zero gravity feeling is present throughout the clip.
The band continued, “We tried a ‘less thinking, more doing’ approach with this clip. We had a really small window of time before everyone went away overseas on holiday, so on a Tuesday night after work we headed to Spotlight with a 100 dollar budget. We ended up buying 4 orange jumpsuits, 4 buckets and some tin foil. Took it all back to HQ, knocked up a green screen in the band room and sent it to the moon.”
