It’s difficult to reconcile that Happy Diving has only been a band for a little under a year. With only a four track demo out so far, the criminally unknown East Bay, California band embody a natural propensity for eased songwriting with catchy hooks and melodies that suggest a band in the long term, combining the groove and drive of early Weezer and California X alongside the depressive morose of shoegaze and dream pop into a unique concoction all their own. Today brings the second single, “Sad Planet”, off of the group’s recently announced, upcoming debut LP, Big World, recorded earlier this year with producer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Whirr). It’s a track that’s more of the same, in a best way possible. Stream “Sad Planet” along with the first single “Weird Dream” below and pre-order Big World, due October 21st via Father/Daughter Records, here.
