Video of the day: DIVES – “Waiting”

The wonderful Austrian trio DIVES are back with a grainy, retro video for their latest single, ‘Waiting’. Filmed with Super8 and directed by Kevin Pham, the video follows the band are through the hallways and rooms of an old mansion. Watch it above.

Following the tradition of various bands associated with Girls Rock, DIVES switch instruments look to renew what is thought to be traditional surf sound. Sharing the load as singers, Tamara and Viktoria speak their minds as they challenge their listeners.


DIVES music celebrates levity, the lightheartedness of juvenileness. Viktoria’s baselines offer the melody to the fast-paced lifestyle of young adults. Supported by the impelling beats of Dora’s drums, ranging from samba rhythms to minimal accentuation. All this is belted together by Tamara’s up-front guitar playing, sometimes losing itself in a loop-driven vortex of sound. On top of it all, impelling melodies paired with interesting voices offer the full package: DIVES are three friends, lacking all insincerity, doing what they like best – having a good time and taking the audience along on their journey.
