Diemonds release video for “Our Song” featuring only three of five band members
Canadian sleaze rockers Diemonds have released a video for their track “Our Song” from their fourth and self-titled studio album, which was released back on August 10, 2018.
Interestingly, the video only features three of the five band members. Featured in the video are lead vocalist Priya Panda who is seen playing the bass guitar, guitarist Daniel Dekay and drummer / newest band member Kyle Lecourt. Notably absent from the video are long-time Diemonds guitarist C.C. Diemond and bassist Tyrone Buccione.
Back in early August 2018, Panda had advised Sleaze Roxx in an interview that Dekay had not played on the group’s latest studio album due to some “massive interpersonal issues” but was still in the band.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Diemonds‘ latest self-titled studio album: “With their self-titled fourth album, Diemonds take the next step with their most commercially sounding, accessible and melodic record. I am usually the first one to complain when a group goes the commercial route (see for example my review of H.E.A.T‘s Into The Great Unknown) but there is one thing that stuck out as I listened to the more commercially sounding songs on Diemonds‘ new album. The tracks have so much melody and pop elements to them but over a punk like or heavy metal canvas (the music) that I find myself singing some of those more commercial tunes on my own without the songs even playing. For those who were lucky enough to see Diemonds play live in 2017, odds are that you’ve already heard the first two songs — “Breathe” and “Our Song” — on the band’s latest studio album. I liked both songs right off the bat when I first heard them live and they only sound better now that I hear them properly recorded. “Breathe” in particular is a stand out rocker and probably my favorite on the whole record. Both “Breathe” and “Our Song” could have found themselves on Never Wanna Die.”
