Glastonbury residents, Dive In returns with a clanging indie banger, ‘Change In The Weather’.

“The song is anchored in the idea of hope and coming out of a darker place” explains Matthew Guttridge continuing “We’ve all found ourselves in rut; be it a creative, more personal – this song celebrates the moment in which something happens / clicks and you know you’re back on course.”

Their upcoming EP follows on from an impressive debut, Eighteen, and is out on 9 November via Vagrant/Good Soldier.

Sounds like: Mew, The Temper Trap, Bad Pony, Keane, MS MR, Pistol Shrimp, Futurecop!, Soft Touch, Of Monsters and Men, Fickle Friends, Kid Astray, Young Kato, Anteros, Satellite Stories, The Killers

Glastonbury is arguably the most well established music festival location in the world. Doing their local residents proud is Dive In (aka Matthew Guttridge, Daniel Hayes & Adam Mason). New indie belter, ‘Eighteen’, has been produced by the band and Andy Green (Keane), and mixed by Alan Moulder (Royal Blood, The Killers). “Eighteen was born from a loop pedal jam in our old residence” explains frontman Guttridge, continuing “it was inspired by another day of watching the village’s festival fences go up.  It was the product of excitement and the, what some may call delusional idea that we could one day amount to the successes of the bands/aritsts that descend upon our village each year.”

‘Eighteen’ is the title track of their debut EP, out 25 May via Vagrant. The band have also announced a London show at The Lexington, London on 5 August. Tickets are £6.00 and can be purchased here.
