Gig Description

Diving Station-Harp-driven dream pop  influenced by the likes of Big Thief and Dirty Projectors. But with their own unique and captivating sound, achieved through the combination of singer Anna McLuckie’s nuanced delivery and Sean Rogan’s sprawling guitar melodies, with a driving yet melodic rhythm section. Since forming in 2014 Diving Station have performed across the UK, appearing on festival line ups such as Bluedot Festival and Head For The Hills, as well as selling out several headline shows in Manchester.The single ‘Plastic People’ has been played on Bob Harris’ show on BBC 2 and Guy Garvey’s Finest Hour on BBC 6 Music to name a few. “What a fantastic sound they make … Good good stuff” – Bob Harris (BBC Radio 2) Chanteuse And Hippos-Sounds a bit like a female (?!) Morrissey in tandem with a kind of Moby mixology reimagined old orchestrated pieces (Nina Simone’s version of I Put A Spell On You for instance- the song being ‘Nina’) with beatology. A nice gospel meets Brit kitchen sink feel to the impassioned vocal, which isn’t really all THAT Mozza like. Interesting fare for sure, and lots of imagination and guts in the performance. Gets on a more sunshine pop tip too. Good work, original. Soulful and sassy at all times. UNO- Synth pop duo, musically rooted in the 80’s, referencing Cabaret Voltaire etc but with a crisp bang up to date House production Bury Blond– highly melodic indie pop, beatlesy harmonies to the fore but tunewise more the G.Harrison side, decent hooky tunes
