After making serious waves with big names such as Kerrang!, MTV and BBC Radio One with their debut EP We’ve Come A Long Way back in 2014, alt-rockers, Diamond Days have returned with an outstanding, brand new EP release on November 25th, just in time for Christmas.
The Space Between Us lures you into a false sense of security with it’s mellow tones and soft introduction but then title track ‘The Death Of Us,’ seamlessly transitions from it and resonates with a resemblance to all of those pop-rock bands that we all used to swoon over when we were younger. If you can think back to the early You Me At Six days and then transition them into Simple Plan, you’d have this single in a nut shell and it’s definitely not a bad thing.
‘Not Every Song With A Long Name Was Written By Fall Out Boy’ acts as the heart to this release and a good old fashioned anthem with a powerful chorus and dynamic delivery. ‘Kings and Queens’ winds down all of this adrenaline nicely with a track that, arguably, might be the weakest on the record as it just has no stand out features and just blends into the background. Having said that, the final track ‘We Are Young’ comes to the rescue and hits you right in the face and the feels with it’s haunting melody and poignant simplicity.
The Death Of Us is a prime example of song-writing finesse and a level of maturity that has blossomed right in front of our eyes and it’s a safe bet to say that Diamond Days are ones to watch out for.
