Formed in the summer of 2013, Diamond Mind is one of Edmonton, Alberta’s favourite musical exports. Always looking to draw from many diverse wells -- pop, noise, soul, all with an eye to the baroque -- the band has already mapped extensive territory, leaping forward with the release of each of their three EPs. With these releases the band has won audiences through the unique character of their songs, recorded in environments ranging from attic bedrooms to storied, established studios. The songs themselves echo this varied topography, ranging in content from intimate, confidential entries, elaborate pseudo-histories and haunting character sketches. Tracing the line back-and-forth between the accessible and the challenging, the music of Diamond Mind carved out an audience among both critics and fans, registering praise not only across Canada but from the international music community.
Now Diamond Mind is pleased to announce its signing to Calgary based label Wyatt Records for the release of their debut full length album. As fans await more news of the upcoming release the band has shared the song “Diamond Mind” ahead of upcoming tour dates.
“We wrote Diamond Mind nearly five years ago,” says Liam Trimble. “It's a march of self-aggrandizement, to be sung out loud in order to grow ‘one thousand, two hundred and fifteen feet tall’ when feeling far from it. It's a lullaby score to a cubicle reverie, the imagination's championing anthem, the daydreamer's hymn,” continues the songwriter. “It was the very first song we performed as a four-piece; every song we've written since has drawn upon the themes of this blueprint, and so when it came time to name our band, Diamond Mind was a perfect fit.”
Diamond Mind is Liam Trimble (Vocals, Guitar, Violin), Ian Michael Waddell (Vocals, Guitar, Keyboards), Matthew Cardinal (Bass Guitar, Vocals) and Aidan Lucas-Buckland (Drums). The four piece kick off a western Canadian tour with label mates Lab Coast with two performances during Calgary’s Sled Island starting tomorrow. All tour dates are listed below.
