Alice EP

By

Released November 2012 (CH104)


CH104DickDiverRGB

Much-loved Melbourne guitar slingers Dick Diver return with Alice, the first song off their second album, provisionally entitled Calendar Days, which is due for release on Chapter Music in 2013. This comes after celebrated 2011 debut album New Start Again and 2009 EP Arks Up.

Alice sees the band in classic full-tilt pop mode, the two Alistairs (guitarist Al McKay and bassist Al Montfort) sharing laconic vocals and trading choruses until other guitarist Rupert Edwards bursts in with some awesome shredding to finish the song.

In and of itself, Alice is pure Dick Diver gold, a very encouraging taste of the album to come, but that’s not all the band have in store for you. They have also assembled a nifty 5 song digital EP to accompany Alice, available for cheap from the band’s own Bandcamp as well as the usual iTunes, Spotify etc.

Alice is accompanied by previously unreleased Dick Diver gems Future Self 1 (the precursor to Future Self 2, which appeared on New Start Again), the swaggering Michael Jackson, a great wonky cover of Mum Smokes’ 1949, and an acoustic version of classic Walk For Room, the opening track from the band’s 2009 EP Arks Up.
