and apart, the members of Diamondtown have decades of experience in the fertile underground rock scene of Nova Scotia. Alumni of Eric’s Trip, Dog Day, Century Egg, and countless other bands have now formed like a flannel-clad Voltron. The group fuses influences from ’80s goth and shoegaze with ’60s psychedelic pop for a melancholy, sun-bleached sound they call “dream-rock.”
New single, “Hide,” has an ethereal dream-pop vibe that creates a melancholic but uplifting soundscape for the listener to find solace in. Escapism is a very common topic in Diamondtown’s music in a world that can be so messed up and overwhelming.
