New Jersey alt rockers Dive sent me a five song sampler of their album, The Truth About Us.
If you are a fan of mainstream radio rock, Dive has a sound that will appeal to you immediately. Dive’s sound is fairly common amongst today’s rock acts. They employ a distorted bass line combined with a heavy
rhythm guitar. There are a few lead guitar licks, but they are few and far between. I like how the percussion was mixed on this disc. The crashing of the cymbals is crystal clear instead of hidden behind the bass rhythm.
The most powerful instrument in this band, is the voice of Jon Sitar. Sitar has the voice that could take Dive to the next level. I was more impressed with his vocals than I was the music, but the five songs on this sampler are pretty good. Dive is certainly band to keep an eye on in the future.
