"Exclusive Premiere: "No Shelter""

Highdive’s new track “No Shelter” begins with an insistent menace to it, guttural guitar jutting up against a militant drum beat. But it opens up in a surprising way, crystal clear vocals emerging from the muddy low end building up in the background. The band describe themselves as “elegant grunge” and that actually seems about right– murky guitars, heavy rhythms but debonair vocals that ensure every acidic put down is audible to you with absolute clarity. You can check Highdive out for yourself tomorrow, December 19th at Nomad but in the meantime, give “No Shelter” a listen or two. - Ovrld

Bio

Highdive brings you elegant grunge from Austin Texas, in the simple and classic power trio form. The band’s signature sound updates the riff-driven power of the early 90s with modern indie perspective and jaw-dropping harmonies. With influences from Nirvana to Springsteen to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Highdive delivers honest and gritty rock n’ roll. 

Lisa, Jamie, and Juliette all contribute their songwriting skills to Highdive’s set, resulting in an extensive but powerfully cohesive range of songs that isn’t afraid to break your heart, call you out, or knock you down - and then pick you right back up with the quiet, knowing support of a lifelong friend. These songs are showcased on the band’s full length debut album, Our Ardent Age (January 8 2016), recorded in 2015 at 5th Street Studios in downtown Austin.

All three gals played in other bands around town and collaborated on solo projects for a few years before joining forces mid-2013 to create Highdive. Lisa (vocals, guitar) is a life-long musician, classically trained on piano and violin, with a set of pipes that has brought comparisons to Stevie Nicks. Jamie (bass) has worked in the industry for a decade and is a luthier by trade - she picked up guitar and bass in college and has been rocking ever since. Juliette (drums, backing vocals) is an experienced multi-instrumentalist with formal training in vocal performance, and continues to have steady solo gigs as a singer-songwriter.

Highdive is a growing force in the local music scene and their high energy shows have drawn crowds to a number of stages around town. Representative venues include Empire Control Room & Garage, the Blackheart, and Spiderhouse Ballroom.
