A love letter to the 80s, LearningToDive is ready to make waves with debut album

Dedicated to the days of the 80s, Pop rocker LearningToDive prepares to release debut album ‘Norwegian pop’.

Inspired by retro sounds, LearningToDive fuses the grooviest elements of synth-pop, post punk and new wave into an unstoppable blend of Pop-Rock goodness.

Set for release on 2nd April, debut album Norwegian Pop is a stunning 11 track line-up of energetic and driving singles. Curious synth pads, lavishly layered vocals and bouncing beats make up LearningToDive‘s recipe for success.

Produced to perfection, Norwegian Pop is a polished and intriguing debut album from LearningToDive.

The striking album explores a range of curious and emotive topics, from hope to betrayal, fears and dangers, Norwegian Pop hosts a wealth of thought-provoking lyricism and real story-telling.

LearningToDive is the new musical identity of New Zealand all-rounder Bravo Bonez. A vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer, there is nothing Bravo can’t master.

Full of true musical talent and composing ability, Bravo Bonez is heavily inspired by the glory days of the 80s, taking influence from artists such as Roxy Music, the Psychedelic Furs, Echo & The Bunnymen and Iva Davies (Icehouse).

High and Dry was our very first taste of the LearningToDive project. Landing on 20th November last year, the punchy track has us truly excited for LearningToDive’s full debut Norwegian Pop.

The new artistic identity from LearningToDive is a passionate and personal musical expression from Bravo, using sound and songwriting to explore his personal trials and interpretation of the world around him.

LearningToDive is an insightful and authentic look into the musical mind of Bravo Bonez, who’s poured an honest and genuine sense of emotion into the Norwegian Pop project.

Perhaps his best work yet, Norwegian Pop will be released on 4th April. In the meantime you can find and follow LearningToDive on:
