Introducing: The Diamond Age

The Diamond Age3

Southampton Dreampop duo, The Diamond Age have been self-producing their recordings since late 2013, releasing ‘Yesterday Was’ and ‘Andrew’s An Android’ on SoundCloud in November that year. Formed of Matt Canning and Bilu Acharjee, the The Diamond Age have recently released a new single, ‘Sleepwalking’. Doing exactly what it says on the tin, the song fully captures the ambience of the title with ethereal melodies and vocals.

The Diamond Age’s raison d’être is the creation of music with immediacy and melody at its very heart, drawing together elements of indie, shoe-gaze and kraut-rock.

You can find The Diamond Age online on Facebook and Twitter. See them live at The Alexandra, in Southampton, on 29 August. For further details on this event, see the venue’s website.
