When we listened to Lava Divers first time, it sounded like a dream coming true. A band so sharp, sounding so good, with a beautiful vinyl EP already released.
Three years later, Lava Divers travelled miles, four of them – Ana, Joe, Eddie and Glauco – packed in a small car, with instruments, crossing Brazil Southeast to Midwest. “The coolest shows were at festivals in Brasilia and Goiânia, so we could interact with other bands,” recalls Glauco.
In between touring, they recorded 11 songs for their first full length, “Plush”. Some songs are as old as the EP, such as “Natural Born Liar”, “Love Is” and “Inside His Eyes”. “From the early days, we kept some songs because people liked it live. And we had so many new tracks… it was a difficult decision,” explains Glauco.
Lava Divers looks like brothers: to be near them is always good vibes. The integration is reflected in compositions, all collectively credited. “The band has a very organic way of working. Usually some of us come up with an idea and the rest give their contribution. You can tell that ‘Forbidden Steps On Hearts’, ‘My Boy’ and ‘Tearsfall’ are from Ana; ‘Gasoline’, ‘Natural Born Liar’ and ‘Great Mistake’ are Eddie’s. But for us, as the contribution is always generous of all in all songs, we signed as a band and not a specific member. ”
“Plush” was released in September 2017 in digital format only.
