Power pop from Down Under. Looking to breach American shores, Melbourne, Australia’s Dick Diver will release Melbourne, Florida, their third album — the first to be issued in the United States — on 10 March 2015 through Trouble in Mind Records.
Opening Melbourne, Florida is the jangly lead single, “Waste the Alphabet.” An infectious tale of teen lust, “Waste the Alphabet” and its nonchalant sexual advances was written in collaboration between guitarist Alistair McKay and Australian poet Michael Farrell.
Stream “Waste the Alphabet” below and pre-order Melbourne, Florida via Bandcamp. All pre-orders come with an immediate download of “Waste the Alphabet.”
