HEAR THIS: The Diamond Age

February 28. 2014 | By Tree Palmedo


The Diamond Age is a Southampton, UK band who make upbeat dance tracks with a dream-pop sheen. Their sound is so lush that it’s easy to forget that it’s just two guys, Matt Canning and Bill Acharjee. And with the mind-blowing diversity of all three of their tracks, it’s hard to believe that the pair haven’t dropped more.

Their latest single is “I Might Just Be,” only the third Diamond Age track to grace the web. The song is a mesmerizing web of layered vocals and clear guitars with a catchy melody and tight beat at its core. It’s reminiscent of groups like Real Estate — that is, if Real Estate started checking out a lot of disco and new wave bands.
