Happy Diving – "So Bunted", Topshelf Debut

todayJune 8, 2015 5

share close

Slacker sludge sells this short. Happy Diving announced their debut for Topshelf Records, due 17 July as a 7″ EP. And on evidence of the title track, it’s pretty glorious. Shades of Ovlov and Dinosaur Jr. infuse this short shot of slacker aggro, and you’re left wanting more. It also proves that San Francisco is producing a deep bench of quality bands looking for your attention. With strong production from Jack Shirley (Whirr, Deafheaven), Happy Diving’s manic energy is channeled into perfect pop, covered in mud. What more could you ask for?

“So Bunted” is available for preorder now from this link. West Coast tour with Never Young to follow immediately thereafter (and there’s some damn fine support at these stops as well).
