South-Cost Dream Poppers The Diamond Age have grown with new recruit Steve Barrett joining on the drums in early 2017. The trio continue to build on the promise of their first EP, further exploring the reverb-drenched, dreamy DIY aesthetic they have become known for.
The band fuse together elements of indie, shoe-gaze and post- punk to create music with immediacy and melody at its heart, drawing influences from The Smiths, The Drums & LCD Soundsystem to a name a few.
May 2014 saw the release of debut single ‘I Might Just Be’, to critical acclaim, with support from the NME, Simon Raymonde (Bella Union) and track of the month on Amazing Radio. This superseded an invitation to perform at Europe’s leading festival for new music, The Great Escape in Brighton, Ventnor Fringe Festival on the IOW, and successful BBC Introducing performance.
