Small World 03:14
passing by all the time plan it right and leave behind all your friends but make it right space, it's calling you tonight but as i see it the universe is ours it's everything you wanted in your heart i want it now, i need it so bad
Space Ooze 01:59
in my head, i feel small i've been high for far too long when you saw me did i look bad? or did i look the same as i always had?
Weird Dream 02:14
wake me up, i've been asleep for too long it's been a while since i saw the sun and when i'm awake, i'll call you every day i'll tell you that i'm fine, that everything is okay so don't worry, we're not in a hurry and i have nowhere else to be but right here, i'll stay until you feel like everything is how it should be
Big World 01:51
let me down now, i'm falling off the line and i can feel it crawling through my spine because in my room now, i feel so divine not a worry running through my mind
Sad Planet 02:54
take me out on the weekend tell me that i'm your best friend and when you say that you've got a lot to do do you wish that i would follow you? do you think you'll feel better when you're wearing a sweater? and the world is fine, and so am i when i'm with you, i want to die i'm the one who's so in love with feeling like he's not enough when you call and say that you've got better things to do
planets mourn watch from the wayside, a newborn moon rises from the deepest fissure staring down with the deepest scorne and you're asking me to stay i'm already on my way
Whenever 02:43
you can call whenever you want i'll be waiting by the phone, i won't get caught up with something better to do it's alright, it's true and i can't go along the path my vision is blurred, i need to relax with you on the phone tonight, call me and i know, that i should go
Always Noon 02:26
all the words i want to hear never find my ear pass the time grow your hair it's your room, your lair its always noon in my room
Explorer 02:00
when you want it all i know you don't even care to know my name your grass is too tall i know you won't even mow an inch away everybody saying to me that they want to be far away apathy for the places i go i guess that i'll leave today happily diving deep below the police can find me if you tell them where to go sharks say i don't belong, i say i know if you want me to, i'll go
10 04:58
when i know, i will tell you i don't have anything to hide i'll be there in forty-five minutes you're only twenty lightyears away passing through the first galaxy that you wanted me to see i don't know where i'm going but i feel it, i can feel it


Listening to East Bay’s Happy Diving it’s hard to believe that they’ve only been together since 2013. A year ago, friends Matt Berry, Samuelito Cruz, Mikey Rivera, and Matt Yankovitz decided to form a band after previous projects fell apart. Since then they’ve been busy making music that fans of Tony Molina, Connecticut’s Ovlov and early Weezer can appreciate.

Their debut full-length, Big World was recorded over a whirlwind two days at The Atomic Garden in East Palo Alto, CA, with the help of producer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Joyce Manor, Whirr). Big World sees the band channeling the energy first displayed on their Self-Titled EP, as well as their deafening and vivacious live shows, into ten concise, sludgy pop songs. We recommend you listen to this album while road tripping across the country, but if you don’t have the time to pack up your cares and get away, Big World fits perfectly into a 30 minute lunch break.
