DANCING ABOUT ARCHITECTURE
Nobody enjoys a pun and a bit of literary word play as much as I do. Well, except my brother-in-law, my neighbour and the guy who runs the shop at the end of my street. Okay, lots of people enjoy a pun as much as I do, but beyond the name Deep C Divers, there is also a lot to like musically too. Smile For Better Days is built on dexterous picked guitar cascades and smooth lead lines, a confident beat and a poetic and poignant vocal delivery.
You might describe their sound as mainstream rock with some infectious pop harmonies and accessible vibes, but mainstream doesn’t have to mean conformist, conservative (small c) or predictable and Deep C Divers make music which is none of those things. It may travel between familiar locations in the musical canon but it takes the scenic route as it does so. It is slick and brimming with sumptuous vocals, clever guitar work and deft penmanship which balances big crescendos and subtle, more minimalist passages with ease. As a calling card for the album Making Waves it is the perfect enticement to check out a full musical platter from the band. Lovely stuff…what more do you need?

I remember the first thought that entered my mind when I heard the title of Deep C Diver’s single Smile for Better Days from their album ‘Making Waves.’ I thought, now there’s a song to help me look forward to the future. And the No. 4 single from the band’s latest album lived up to my expectations.
No one knows how to pull off classic rock tunes quite like this band from Boston, and Smile for Better Days serves as a reminder of the good ol’ days when rock ‘n’ roll ruled every stage. The band, made up of lead singer Deep Chinappa, guitarist Paul Erlich, bassist Gregg Marcus, and drummer John Bordage, brought to life the feelings of hopefulness that are rare among indie and classic rock bands today with Smile for Better Days.
From the moment the song opened up with an intricate and timeless bass piece to the time Deep crows the opening lines ‘I see you coming, I see you going’, I knew I was in for a smooth musical ride with Smile for Better Days. The band retained a regular tempo throughout the song, the instrumentation perfectly complementing Deep’s solemn voice as he sings of seeing a new day. It’s not every day I find a band that knows how to make use of their song’s allotted time.
For the Deep C Divers, it seems almost effortless in this song. From the opening notes to the tentatively sang lyrics towards the end of the track, Smile for Better Days kept me engaged and did not seem to drag on through its 3:54 allotted time.
For a band in a space as competitive as rock, Deep C Divers hold their own with this track. However, the song reflects the Queen-esque style of the band, which, if I’m being honest, makes it seem like the band will not be making waves with their latest album.

In an industry filled with gimmicks, Deep C Divers hosts a refreshing sound that brandishes integrity and virtuous melody consistent with the traditional ethics of the popular music genre.

Deep C Divers’ recent single Smile For Better Days captures glimpses of the magic that these four talented men weave.
Smile For Better Days is a single off the album Making Waves. The track has strong organic quality that flirts with the genres of country rock, folk, pop, and classic rock. Lyrically, Smile For Better Days is more than a salutation of “get home safe,” but a philosophy that is being shared by more and more people who understand the technology of good emotions and smiling.
The song’s structure and instrumentation is brilliant. Smile For Better Days has a lovely break and emphasizes a similar formula to another quartet that is known to have ruled the music world of the 1960’s.
