Taking their name from the main character in F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel Tender Is the Night, indie pop/indie rock quartet Dick Diver formed in Melbourne, Australia in 2008. Drawing inspiration from the emotionally rich pop of fellow countrymen the Go-Betweens, as well as the brainy guitar wrangling of Television and Yo La Tengo, guitarists Rupert Edwards and Alistair McKay, drummer Steph Hughes, and busy bassist Al Montfort (who also played with Total Control, Lower Plenty, and UV Race at different times) released their first EP, Arks Up, in 2009. It began their relationship with Chapter Records, who released all their albums, and with producer Mikey Young (of Total Control and Eddy Current Suppression Ring), who produced them.

    High-viz & after shave
    I mean does "what women want" tacked on your wall
    Mean all these kinds of nights will end up the same?
    You need a friend?

    I start to laugh, I'm mister natural
    I fluff your TV at night,
    You got a hard, hard bed,

    I get out of bed
    I get my toast to the perfect shade of gold
    I live in the city
    You don't deliberate
    You set goals and you reach goals
