So far, Philly four-piece Divers have a teeny, tiny discography, but there’s a lot to love. Emily Ana Zeitlyn — you might know her from The Weeds — sings with murder-ballad desperation on “Wild Thing.” (That one’s a free download on diversband.com.) This Saturday’s gig at Johnny Brenda’s doubles as a release show for a two-song CD hot off the soundboard at Turtle Studios in South Philly. “‘Eggshells’ is really the first pop song I ever wrote,” says Zeitlyn of a tune propelled by Ross Bellenoit’s crisp guitar hook. “It kind of surprised me by popping out all bouncy and punchy.” On the other hand, “Follow” is a boozy, throaty little torcher. “The vocals and the band were all recorded at once, which I have been wanting to do for awhile,” she explains. “What you hear is exactly what we sound like live.” As for a full-length, Zeitlyn’s thinking late winter.
Sat., Oct. 6, 9:15 p.m., $10, with Andrew Gray and Tutlie, Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 215-739-9684, johnnybrendas.com.
