“We all moved to Charleston on the same day, and there was nothing else in our minds but forming a rock band”, says frontman, Luke Mitchell. With a number of extensive tours under their belts and opening slots for the likes of Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats and Delta Spirit amongst others, The High Divers are steadily materialising into exactly what they’d envisioned.
The rock band from South Carolina, USA come through with their new track ‘”Fall in Love so Fast” – creating a full-blooded rock swagger that falls somewhere between The Hold Steady and Arcade Fire. With a natural flair for melody and chorus, it’s the unexpected addition of trumpets and woodwind onto the outro that starts to paint an image of their vision and ability.
The history of the band stretches all the way back to childhood for frontman Luke, and bassist Kevin. “Kevin was just a little kid trying to learn how to ride a bike, and he ran straight into my Dad’s van”, laughs Luke. Luke and Kevin played music together in various bands for years before The High Divers were formed. Fate slowly brought the rest of the band together when Mary Alice (keys/vocals) and Julius DeAngelis (drums) jumped into the mix. The first release from their second album ‘Chicora’ in March 2018 via True Blue Records, this is a pulsating and innovative rock sound that brandishes both heart and energy.
