Following the release of the stunning album Moon Moods on Critical Heights last year, LA’s electro-pop enchantress DIVA hits the road with her unique live show. Her gigs are a spectacular blend of music and performance art, with fabulous costume changes and mesmerising visuals.
Having honed her pop dynamic to a gloriously melodic precision, Diva plucks inspiration from a myriad of different styles and genres of music including doo-wop, R&B, hip hop, exotica, disco, psych and new age. The results are dizzyingly captivating.
Moon Moods is thematically as varied as its musical inspirations, combining songs about heartache with tunes containing references to mysticism, magic and the occult. A few of the tracks follow Diva’s spiritual journey: coming to terms with uniting her life on earth with the otherworldly and supernatural, but with “Smooth Ride” she realises that we are all on our way to harmonising the seemingly disparate into one paradise.
Having grown up in Los Angeles, Diva Dompé is a fixture of its varied music scene. She currently is also involved in the goddess performance art group Babes, as well as collaborating and performing here and there with other friends and musicians. She has shared tours with Ariel Pink, Os Mutantes, Sun Araw, M Geddes Gengras, Matthewdavid, and Mi Ami. Before deciding to focus mainly on her solo work Diva was a member of Pocahaunted, L.A. Ladies Choir, and blackblack.

“a looping, psychedelic, big warm cauldron of molten nectar noise? Diva?s trippy grooves evoke a lighter, less masculine Sun Araw.” Drowned in Sound 8/10
