You Should Know About Diamond Rings

I first became aware of Diamond Rings last summer when the video for “All Yr Songs” started making its round on the internet last summer. The video is 80s/analog inspired and the song is similarly adorable. I love the words Diamond Rings (nee John O’Regan) plays with and the way the syllables perfectly fit in the pocket of the beat. And the song is just infectious. I dare you to not get this stuck in your head after an initial listen.

You can’t argue that Diamond Rings’ songs and his aesthetic are unlike anything else out there on the music scene right now. But I think the most impressive thing about O’Regan is that he manages to be completely unique and yet still incredibly catchy and approachable. It’s quite easy to be different if you are doing something that nobody really wants to hear anyway. But there is a real subtle talent about being able to create something new that sounds so familiar. I’m very anxious to see what he does next. Diamond Rings is due to release a full length later this month.
