Diemonds singer Priya Panda continues new musical direction with solo single “Shook U Off”
Diemonds‘ long-time lead vocalist Priya Panda continues her change in musical direction with her second solo single titled “Shook U Off.” The singer released her first solo single “Take Me Back” in late March 2020.
In a recent interview with Sleaze Roxx, Panda spoke about her change in musical direction with her solo material as she stated:
“It’s something that I have always wanted to do. It’s a style of music that I very much appreciate and listen to probably as much as hard rock and punk. Ask anyone in Diemonds. They all know my music because when I drive the van — which I was one of the primary van drivers — on tour with Diemonds, you got to pick the music if you’re driving. So everyone was listening to my Depeche Mode, my Pet Shop Boys, and they know all the words and they know all the songs.”
Panda added: “They knew it was coming actually out of all people. But yeah, it’s a big departure but it’s what I wanted to do. It’s what I like here right now. One of the changes is that I wanted to explore that side. It gives me the opportunity to be a little bit more introspective with what I am saying or what I am talking about. I thought with Diemonds, I felt limited. I never talked about myself so much and I never really talked about my experiences, relationships or my observations. When it comes to a lot of people interacting with people, a lot of my observations is kind of what is going on right now. The world is going to end. How are we going to survive it? Everything is so post-apocalyptic and dark. Usually and especially with the ‘Never Wanna Die‘ album, it’s basically about what we are seeing right now. The whole world shifting and a new normal happening. So now I can write about my own life.”
