Feel very strong about "Dive In" being one the best DreamPop/Shoegaze releases of 2014.
Seasurfer covers all the bases of the genre and every track flows in and out of one another almost seamlessly.
Not a wasted track within.
Dorian's icy mystifying female vocalizations are a revelation.
But the melodies and production are the stars here as every track shimmers and shines.
Heavenly! Favorite track: Hide.

Simon Proper shoegaze. Definitely worth turning the volume up and annoying the neighbours. Favorite track: We Run.

Jim Payne Musical discovery of the month for me here; and as I listen to it more, I am feeling it will likely be one of my favorite discoveries of the year. "Under Water" is simply AMAZING; and I can't help but feel that the deeply embedded lyrics are done that way on purpose; as if the lyrics themselves are just under the surface. Numerous strong tracks make this a VERY impressive debut album!

about

Punk? Dreampop? Alternative? SEASURFER are somehow all that and say of themselves that they are playing something like dreampunk. But that doesn`t really matter, What’s essential is what is inside ... and that's a lot: a charismatic singer, guitar without end, and a wild drummer in the back corner. It creaks and whistles from all corners , but that`s it: dirty, poignant, authentic. Good thing! Just a cool sound!

Singer, Dorian E. from Berlin builds her very own wall of sound. Heavenly floating. Abysmally low. Loving and grieving .

Songwriter and guitarist, Dirk (also founder of the Dreampop band, "Dark Orange") spits his Fuzz Reverb guitars out of the amplifier. Wall of Sound. Trash. Noise. Intricate melody carpets.

Bassist, Mikel, plays a fat bass, reminiscent of the good Simon Gallup of "The Cure ". Dramatic. Supporting. Melodic.

The drummer beats around like a wild man and has to bang around in the back.

The final touch for the sound on SEASURFER's album "dive in”, was completed by an Englishman who knows what this is all about: Karl Skivington from Nottingham Shoegazers, "Spotlight Kid".
