Diamond Days – People Change

DD_RingMasterReview

In the second half of 2015, UK alternative pop/rock band Diamond Days grabbed attention with the release of two singles in quick succession; songs which built upon the potential and success of their previous EP. Now they nudge the bar of their melody rich sound again with new track People Change; a single confirming why good, praise loaded things are constantly being said about the Liverpool band.

DD art_RingMasterReviewFormed in 2014, the quartet soon sparked keen online attention with the release of debut single Start It From The End, its release soon followed by over 60,000 views on YouTube and the luring of over 30,000 followers across social media since. Drawing on inspirations ranging from Fall Out Boy, You Me At Six, and Panic! At The Disco to Foo Fighters, Young Guns, and Lower Than Atlantis, the band’s sound has persistently evolved with each release too starting with their impressing debut EP, We’ve Come A Long Way. Live the band has equally earned a potent reputation, sharing stages with bands such as The Blackout, William Control, Metro Station, Motion City Soundtrack, Fearless Vampire Killers, and Verses along the way. Both the Love Struck Kids and I Rewind singles of last year hinted at further growth in songwriting and sound which now People Change backs with infectious charm.

An opening melodic sigh brings in the punchy beats of Mark Highdale and the enticing lures of guitarists Tom Shepherd and Alex Fearn first, the latter equally as swift in offering his strong voice and expression to the emerging song. It is a rousing start which never explodes but continues to fuel the growing harmonic and melodic roar. Darker textures are provided by the bass of Tom Jack Jackson, giving a great temper to the vibrancy which soaks the song from enterprise and craft through to the potent tones of Fearn.

There is also a great hint of new unpredictability emerging in the band’s songwriting too; a sudden twist into a calmer emotive climate without real warning one great moment in the increasingly magnetic encounter.

With a great video to accompany it, People Change looks like being the start of another strong year for Diamond Days and an enjoyable one for us.

People Change is out now.

Diamond Days – Love Struck Kids/I Rewind

diamond days_RingMaster Review

UK alternative rockers Diamond Days released their new single a matter of days ago and already have its successor eagerly waiting for release in a few short weeks, so we thought we would look at both Love Struck Kids and I Rewind in one clean swoop.

Diamond Days hail from the Northwest of the UK and have already impressed and drawn good praise with their We’ve Come A Long Way EP which came out last November. Even before then debut single, Start It From The End had given a potent introduction to the Liverpool quartet, receiving over 60,000 views on YouTube and sparking over 20,000 followers for Diamond Days across the social media. As mentioned We’ve Come A Long Way ignited even stronger and eager attention from fans and indeed media, as well as a live presence which has seen the band supporting the likes of The Blackout, William Control, and Verses, and now it is the turn of their two new singles to stir up more welcome fuss.

cover_RingMaster Review   First, and released a number of days back, is the Seb Berrios and Arthur Indrikovs (Florence & the Machine, Foxes, Jon Newman, Clean Bandit) produced Love Struck Kids. Immediately hefty rhythms and keenly eager riffs are rapping ears but equally a melody built sonic persuasion is there coaxing ears too before the strong voice of Alex Fearn erupts with equal colour. It is a powerful and thickly enticing start which only grips a little tighter as the guitars of Tom Shepherd and Fearn flirt with open enterprise and the commanding rhythmic bait of bassist Tom Jack Jackson and drummer Mark Highdale sets to work.

The song soon shows a familiarity in its surging stride of sound and energy yet has a freshness and invention which turns that to merely another spice in its resourceful adventure, which subsequently brings in mellow keys around an additional reflective vocal piece portraying a deeper emotion fuelled drama. The track is soon roaring as before though to leave ears and appetite just that little greedier and without doubt more energetically pleasured.

It is an invigorating proposition understandably already getting rave responses; a result forthcoming single I Rewind will surely match. In fact it has already drawn great praise as part of the We’ve Come A Long Way EP from where it comes. Featuring Yashin vocalist Harry Radford, the song ‘tickles’ ears and expectations with an initial lure of smiling guitar, this in turn sparking healthy beats and a throaty bassline as the guitars broaden their tapestry and the vocals of Fearn, backed again impressively across band and guest, unfurl the narrative and its emotion.

With a great vocal ‘spitting’ midway and a greater snarl to its heart and nature compared to the first single, I Rewind is a formidable and anthemic incitement and remains, if not arguably the best Diamond Days song to date, certainly the biggest favourite.

Both singles only reinforce and push the reputation and growing stature of Diamond Days, a band it is easy to suspect as it evolves a richer distinct identity to its right now You Me At Six meets Lower Than Atlantis meets Fall Out Boy sound, will only get bigger and better.

Love Struck Kids is out now with I Rewind released in September 2015.

Diamond Days – We’ve Come A Long Way

1979286_514487405321128_4288476484675633961_o

Swiftly proving the growing buzz around them is bred from rich potential and an invigorating sound, UK alternative rock band Diamond Days are poised to release their We’ve Come A Long Way EP. Made up of four songs which burst with creative vitality and exuberant invention, the encounter is a captivating proposition which reveals there is still plenty more to uncover within the band but that they are knocking on the broadest spotlights already.

Bursting out of Liverpool, Diamond Days took time from forming to hone their sound before unleashing debut single Start It From The End. It was from there that the clamour over them began, the track drawing over 60,000 views and more than 20,000 followers across YouTube and Twitter swiftly from its unleashing. Backed up by a hunger to play live and just as potent stage performances, the band has earned a growing fan base and acclaim, being compared to the likes of You Me At Six and Fall Out Boy. Diving back into the studio to record their EP alongside producer Seb Berrios, Diamond Days have taken the next impressive step in their ascent, a rise which though still early days you can see finding rich horizons.

The EP opens with the outstanding Let Go, a track emerging from a distant and potent enticing to stride with sinew driven rhythms and drama clad riffs. It is soon exploring inventive scenery as electro spiced keys and sonic intrigue lurk to tease the imagination as the impressive vocals of guitarist Alex Fearn open up the narrative. He swiftly proves himself to be a stylish and accomplished provocateur as he leads the senses into a virulently catchy chorus, whilst his and the guitar of Tom Shepherd continually provide a fiery weave of melodies and sonic intrigue across the track which the rhythmic enticing of bassist TJ Jackson and drummer Mark Highdale punctuate and spear with skilled and energetic tenacity. The track, which has to be a single at some point, is an inescapable contagion for feet and emotions, its blend of ferocious and seductive adventure superbly marshalled by the vocals and crafted by the invention of the band.Diamond Days

The following Home (A Million Miles Away) also has a punch to its entrance and body though it is not quite as instantly commanding as its predecessor. With electro essences around a spicy and wiry tapestry of guitar endeavour, the song is soon taking its share of attention and emotions though. It has a bounce and confident swagger in all aspects which shines like a beacon in the heart of the encounter, whilst its infectious character is as sublimely persuasive as the song’s melodic textures and theatre

Featuring Harry Radford of Yashin, I Rewind lays down its own striking slice of melodic incitement and addictive vivacity next. Evolving around a great throaty bassline, the song flames and soars with vocal and sonic voracity, exploring new flavours and creative shades along the way. It creates a compelling web which is like Dead Til Friday meets Always The Quiet Ones, whilst is pop punk dynamics have a spice of Jimmy Eat World to them. Its rampant enticing leads into final song You’re Not Alone, an undemanding but again intriguing pop rock escapade revealing more of the inventive and melodic resourcefulness of the band. Though it does not quite have the spark of its predecessors, due to their impressive qualities, the track still leaves appetite wanting more and anticipation boiling up for the next encounter.

We’ve Come A Long Way is a treat of a bigger introduction to Diamond Days which without quite showing the band with a distinctly unique voice right now, has all the evidence to suggest it is coming and that we are set for more hunger feeding adventures ahead.

The We’ve Come A Long Way EP is available from 17th November via http://diamonddaysuk.bigcartel.com/
