Beloved British indie-pop trio Saint Etienne released a new album, Home Counties, back in June via Heavenly. Now they have announced two new EPs, Dive and Dive Remixes, both due out September 8 via Heavenly. Both are titled after Home Counties track “Dive.” One features that song and three new tracks and the other includes three remixes of “Dive.” They have shared “Dive (Greg Wilson & Derek Kaye Remix).” Listen below, followed by the tracklists.

Saint Etienne’s Sarah Cracknell had this to say about “Dive” and “Obvious”:

“I started writing ‘Dive’ with Carwyn Ellis in early 2016, we’d worked on my solo album together and were on a bit of a roll. I love the final result, it reminds me of care free summer days growing up in Home Counties Windsor fooling around on the Thames.
My favorite song on the Dive EP is ‘Obvious’ which is about leaving your hometown and boomeranging back later in life. It’s something that didn’t happen to me but so many of my old friends have returned to Windsor or in fact never left. I envy the fact that they meet up together in the same pubs we used to hang out in our teens. That would be a welcome treat right now as I’m missing my recently departed friend Mick Bund. This release is dedicated to him.”

The band’s Bob Stanley had this to say about the Greg Wilson & Derek Kaye remix:

“Greg Wilson, all time discotheque hero, has understood the school holiday essence of ‘Dive’ and made something liquid and beautiful.”
