The art pop extravaganza that is Capitano and the big bold art pop of "Dive"

The track Dive by the German band Capitano fronted by the burly peacock-ian art pop provocateur
(Canadian born, German raised, half Norwegian) John Whol blends art rock with deep pop hooks into a trippy theater of the mind. Whol's self aware and very theatrical vocal performance that moves effortlessly into gritty falsettos plays on top of a framework of heavy synths and edgy guitar lines and (on Dive) a children's choir. Whol's partner in crime and the so called brains and bones of the band is Berlin raised Fuzz Santander aided by Dyve Diamond and Mikael Goldbløm. I am loving the unabashedly artistic aesthetic here. Dive is from their "Hi" album.
