Happy Diving – Electric Soul Unity

A fiercely cohesive rampage.
Published: 8:58 am, August 26, 2016
A fiercely cohesive rampage.

Label: Topshelf Records
Released: August 26th 2016
Rating: ★★★★

‘Electric Soul Unity’ may be Happy Diving’s fourth album in less than three years but there’s not a moment of fatigue throughout.

Tightly wound and wonderfully fuzzy around the edges, the record bounces between fast and furious but never seems reckless. ‘Head Spell’ is sleek and noisy, all reflective parts and downwards glances while ‘The Call, It Thunders’ lets go and sees the band spiral off into wig-out country.

The edges may be tough to define as the tracks tumble together but ‘Electric Soul Unity’ is a fiercely cohesive rampage. Ali Shutler
