Diving Station Short Info

“What a fantastic sound they make ... Good good stuff” - Bob Harris (BBC Radio 2)

“(The songs) sound great ... Exquisite” - Dave Gilyeat (BBC Introducing in Oxford)

Harp-driven rock band Diving Station are a four piece that make a lot of noise. Taking influence from alternative and indie folk bands such as Bon Iver and Dirty Projectors, they are known to captivate and engage audiences with their dream-like sound. The unique combination of singer Anna McLuckie's delicate Clàrsach playing and Sean Rogan's sprawling guitar melodies front the ensemble's style. This is integrated with a driving yet melodic rhythm section and the accompaniment of secondary vocals.

Since forming in 2014 they have supported the likes of Clock Opera at Night & Day, Bwani Junction at The Liquid Rooms, King Eider at the Electric Circus, and Wille and the Bandits at RNCM. Other performances were showcased at venues such as The Deaf Institute, St. Mary’s Cathedral in Edinburgh, The Wonder Inn with The Samsara Collective, Aatma, Sofar Sounds in Leeds, Edinburgh and Newcastle, and Matt & Phreds. In June they were invited to perform at the Association for Popular Music Education's National Conference at Berklee College of Music.

Diving Station had the pleasure of recording the soundtrack for a Channel 4 Random Acts short film at Timeline North in Media City. They have since then had their original tracks filmed by Sofar Sounds and Spotlight Music UK, remixed by producers Pixelate, Taurtollo and Idiotbox, aired on BBC Radio 2, BBC Introducing in Manchester and Oxford, Amazing Radio, performed on ALL FM, and featured on Breaking More Waves, New Street Records Manchester, Divide and Conquer, and The Devil Has The Best Tuna.

Diving Station released their first EP, ‘Alice’, on the 27th January online as a pay-what-you-want download and CD via Bandcamp: https://divingstationmusic.bandcamp.com/album/alice and is also now available on Spotify.
