DEEP SEA DIVER Release new cover of Alanis Morissette’s ‘Hand In My Pocket’ featuring Damien Jurado

2021 U.S. Tour happening now Includes SOLD OUT headline show at The Showbox in Seattle WA


Seattle’s Deep Sea Diver is in the middle of U.S. tour that started out on the West Coast opening for fellow Northwesterners Death Cab For Cutie, and is currently in Brooklyn NY headlining the Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight with experimental pop artist Diane Coffee, and continues back across the USA for four California shows supporting Australian indie rockers Middle Kids and ends in their hometown of Seattle WA for an already SOLD OUT show headlining The Showbox. All dates are below and tickets are available HERE.

Today the band is thrilled to announce a cover of Alanis Morrissette’s ‘Hand In My Pocket’ featuring Damien JuradoLISTEN/STREAM HERE. Lead singer Jessica Dobson says: “One of my favorite things in the world is to cover a larger than life song and try and make it my own. Growing up in the 90’s, Alanis was one of the only female artists in the rock world that I had to look up to. I’ve always felt like someone that never finds a home in the middle. ‘Hand In My Pocket’ is a song that so perfectly captured the many juxtapositions in life while making me feel like it was completely fine to be whatever I wanted to be. This cover was recorded in my home studio and I asked Damien Jurado to sing with me on it because I’ve always loved the emotion in his voice. This year marked the 25th anniversary of ‘Jagged Little Pill’ and I wanted to honor this incredible song and I hope I did it justice. Much love to Alanis!”

Deep Sea Diver was recently featured on NPR Music’s Tiny Desk (Home) concerts, performing three tracks from their acclaimed 2020 LP Impossible Weight as well as the standalone single “Stop Pretending” – which was named one of NPR Music’s 100 Best Songs of 2020. NPR called the performance “a testament to the group’s attention to detail, too; as in many of the best Tiny Desk concerts, the band’s magnetic energy and finely-crafted songs make the small space feel huge and joyous.” Watch the concert HERE.

Deep Sea Diver’s Impossible Weight is the first record Jessica Dobson – a long sought-after guitarist who has played with Beck, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the Shins – has self-produced. The album’s title track is an incredible collaboration with Sharon Van Etten, and NPR Music named the single “Stop Pretending,” a standalone single written during quarantine, one of its 100 Best Songs of 2020, writing, “out of pandemic fear and the depths of despair came this beautiful quarantine classic.” Impossible Weight was named KEXP’s #1 Album of 2020, and American Songwriter hailed it as “the strongest and most powerful statement yet from a talent on the verge of breaking out.”
