Electric Soul Unity


Artist: Happy Diving
Label: Topshelf Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 26 August 2016

Electric Soul Unity is Happy Diving’s fourth record in less than three years. Their characteristic thick Rock fuzz is coupled with tender melodies, a yin-yang of scorching in-your-face rippers and contagious hook-laden sing-alongs. The aggressive driving force of lead single 'Holy Ground' meets its match with the slow-burning ballad, 'Head Spell', proving the band is just as comfortable in their quieter moments as they are being loud as hell...

If you're a fan of the Rock scene then you've no doubt already heard of Happy Diving.

Electric Soul Unity contains 12 songs (29 min, 58 sec), a little too short for an album in my book, but if you're a fan of the band you'll probably overlook this. Also, it was a bit too heavy on the fuzz for my liking - but then this is part of the band's distinct sound.

It's a sound you're either going to really get on with, or not appreciate at all. Personally, I like my Rock to be a little heavier and little more fluid.
