about

Limited to 300 copies on glitter wax this debut album is primarily characterized by the feel good hypnotic driving freak dub psych familiar from the likes of pocahunted (diva’s previous gig) or vibes. The LA based notnotfun family DNA is of course in the mix as are, at times, the mechanical prepared loops of bibio or calamalka. All of this punctuated by an off kilter vocal that owes, in its otherworldly feel, a debt that is part cure, part siouxsie and part mick karn. For those with finely calibrated ears you’ll even detect a bit of “see emily play” era pink Floyd in there too.

Described by some as a psychedelic cassette tape princess Diva is nothing if not always compelling. In whatever incarnation you may have caught her – with her early cult LA band blackblack (alt.vinyl LP out later this summer – catch their incredible videos on youtube), with pocahaunted (where I caught them at notnotnfun’s hideout gig at sxsw) or with her band, playing alongside the lies of Os Mutantes or Ariel Pink, she is a force of nature live. Catch Diva on her multi country European tour starting this spring – UK dates in April.
