„To dive“ is just the perfect association for she dives’ music: There’s nordicly algid, yet cristal clear soundscapes growing out of Nils Bloch’s and Asger Kudahl’s efforts. They’re made out of smoothly flowing electronics, metalic twinkling guitar strings and this extra-ordinary voice. It’s all about loss and retrieval. But never about easy solutions. And for sure, the waves are closing in above the listeners’ heads.
she dives is still a very new band name. But the two Copenhageners Nils Bloch and Asger Kudahl already have, as two third of Temple, played a hugely promising European tour – followed up by a first round through Germany under their new moniker; presenting new melodical and haunting songs at eleven stages. Now they want to reach even further.
she dives’ elaborate take on this topic doesn’t stop with the music itself: All titles on Nebula are links to websites – as time passes, websites disappear, giving the song titles an expiration date… a sort of built-in obsolescence that reflects the logic of the markets.
In summer 2017, she dives are available to present their new, extra-ordinary work in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
“A great, great performance” (BR Puls)
“Asger Kudahl and Nils Bloch from Copenhagen and their band She Dives should be on your radar. Born out of the ashes of their former band Temple the duo creates haunting but also quite intimate masterpieces that deserve more spotlight.” (Nothing But Hope And Passion)
generally available in August and October, November, December.
