DIVES was formed in February of 2016 after Dora de Goederen, Tamara Leichtfried and Viktoria Kirner met at the Austrian Pink Noise Camp. The Viennese underground scene was immediately taken by their surf-ish sound. German SPEX magazine sees the band in line with “indie heroes such as the Shop Assistants, Feelies […] with influences of bands such as La Sera or Waxahatchee”. DIVES are contemporary and yet there’s an 80s vibe to be traced.

DIVES already toured 13 countries in Europe, played with artists such as L.A. Witch, Bilderbuch, Annenmay Kantereit and Courtney Barnett. The trio opened Popfest Wien in 2018 and performed at renowned festivals c/o Pop, Popkultur Berlin, Reeperbahn Festival and Waves Vienna. DIVES have been awarded the XA – Music Export Award at Waves Vienna 2018 and became one of the “Focus Acts 2019”.

Their full-lenght debut album “Teenage Years Are Over” was released in 2019 via Siluh Records, followed by shows at Viva Sounds Gothenburg and Eurosonic Noorderslag 2020. The much-anticipated 2nd studio album “Wanna Take You There”, was released in October 2022 via Siluh Records to great acclain. It is a continuation of the band’s history, a testimony to musical coalescence and, as well, an expression of newly learned ways of working during the pandemic. As usual, varied but true to the unmistakable DIVES sound: light-footed but self-confident.
