Will Thomas is the creative mastermind behind electro-acoustic project Dive Index. The talented songwriter/producer enlists a variety of guest vocalists and musicians whenever Dive Index hit the studio and he’s on the top of his game with latest full-length “Lost in the Pressure.”
Vocalists Isaiah Gage and Simone White augment a 12-track, 53-minute release that overstays its welcome by about a quarter. Despite the excessive running time, Dive Index deliver plenty of special moments that rival their stellar 2007 “Mid/Air” debut.
The opening salvo of “Rewind Your Patience” and “A Person to Hide With” set the mellow, downbeat tone and Gage, in addition to vocals, plays a killer cello on many of the best cuts. Additional keepers include “Be Cold With Me,” “Constant Chatter,” “Pattern Pieces” and “Sea Glass.” (Jeffrey Sisk)
