Harp-driven dream pop band Diving Station take influence from the likes of Big Thief and Dirty Projectors. They are known to captivate and engage audiences with their distinctive sound, achieved through the unique combination of singer Anna McLuckie's nuanced delivery and Sean Rogan's sprawling guitar melodies. This is integrated with a driving yet melodic rhythm section and the accompaniment of secondary vocals.

Since forming in 2014 Diving Station have performed across the UK supporting bands such as Indian Queens, Clock Opera and Meursault. They have appeared on festival line ups at Bluedot Festival and Head For The Hills as well as selling out several headline shows in Manchester.

Diving Station released their first EP, ‘Alice’, in January 2017. The single ‘Plastic People’ has been played on Bob Harris’ show on BBC 2 and Guy Garvey’s Finest Hour on BBC 6 Music to name a few. Reviewed by international blogs from ‘Lights + Music’ in Japan, ‘Berkeley Place’ in Virginia to Piccadilly Records in Manchester: “Diving station bring us their completely out-of-the-blue and completely gorgeous 'Alice'. Taking clear influence from the sort of ethereal and melodic instrumental passages of Mazzy Star, with the husky and enchanting vocal leanings of PJ Harvey or the light airy whisperings of Liz Harris.” - Piccadilly Records, Manchester.

“What a fantastic sound they make ... Good good stuff” - Bob Harris (BBC Radio 2).

“Properly beautiful ... full of fascinating anthemic abstractions and swooning otherworldly ambiance, but packed with triumphant and massively effective songwriting” - Piccadilly Records, Manchester.

Feather Mouth, to be released in November 2018, is the band’s sophomore release and most accomplished creative contribution yet. The EP is a four track concoction of melodic intensity and musical determination. The lyrical content and title of this work explores themes of stilted conversation and the trials of communication whilst coming of age. Recorded and mixed with producer Hugo Meredith-Hardy in the lake-side surroundings of the Cambridge countryside, the music builds upon the dream-like sound world first established in their previous release ‘Alice’. This returns in the wavering, heavily affected guitars, yet is matured and strengthened by the more focused musical arrangements and the illuminating lyrical content.
