DIAMOND THUG RELEASE NEW SINGLE ’CHOO CHOO’

Leading up to Diamond Thug’s release of their debut LP in April 2018, ‘Choo Choo’ presents a dark electronic tone comparing a lover’s quarrel to a medieval battle. The name ‘Choo Choo’ is a playful twist derived from the chorus’ harrowing lyrics: “Chewed you up, you’re tired.” perhaps offering a glimpse into the dichotomy of minds in a toxic relationship. As the song unfolds, a labyrinth of arpeggios, guitar melodies and varying synthesizers come and go until finally culminating in a powerful, psychedelic ending. A crescendo of sound mirrors the crescendo of tension, with the band offering little resolve and instead leaving the listener with a taste of the experience.

Since their formation, Diamond Thug have continually evolved, always striving to create a unique sound that’s stay true to their perspective. Their music glides through dream-pop, skittish, off-kilter electronica & psychedelic-rock, creating cosmic-influenced ethereal soundscapes, which swirl below Chantel’s haunting, yet beautiful melodies. The pursuit of an authentic & honest sound has earned the band various honours in international competitions such as Culture Collide’s pick to perform at SXSW 2017, as well as Converse’s Music Global Takeover and the attention of Grammy Award winner Darryl Torr, who had this to say about the band: “When listening to Diamond Thug, you are taken on a journey. It’s the effortless vocals, supported by a solid band, that tips you over the edge & pulls you through into their world. It’s rare to find a voice that can execute such interesting melodies so effortlessly as well as a band that leaves space for the vocals to shine, yet are able to maintain musical integrity.”
