Dive are a quartet from Finland with a clear penchant for dark, sweeping romantic pop. There's no better example of this than on the first track to their second EP. 'Alive' may feature some rather gloomy guitar figures but then the graceful violins join in and singer Lauri's unusual rasping vocal takes the song to a more epic, optimistic place. More songs like this and the international recognition they crave should be a cakewalk. The remaining three tracks are not quite as memorable but offer solid support. 'Precious Things' is punkier and wiry, 'Speech' is like Interpol in demo form and 'To Have And To Hold' is serviceable shimmering, jangly pop. Admiration for this band is likely to depend on how one feels about Lauri's vocal contribution; some will find it hard to listen to whilst others will appreciate the passion he clearly puts into his singing. Yet the signs are positive for another Nordic invasion of the UK airwaves.
