DIVVAS describe their music as Tarkovsky holding hands with the queen. That image - mythic, jarring, vaguely comical - is a fine descriptor for the conflicted emotional states they put across in their debut EP Challenger Deep. Their lyrics converse with the void, engaged with heartbreak and emptiness, yet are underpinned with a simmering fury which asserts itself when nothing else will. Their music speaks to wastelands, the horror of the emptiness, and the flickering ember of hope underpinning it all. Made up of Corrine Nora and Dave Eleanor, the duo met at rehearsals for a show in April 2019. Upon realising they shared sonic touchstones, the duo worked at a furious pace, and by September had completed their debut EP. As such, their music is inherently dual, a meeting of two different musical backgrounds, Corrine’s jazz roots meeting with Dave’s classical education. Working deep into the night, DIVVAS worked on the EP continuously over a week, irritating flatmates and creating their own world in the process.
