Fearlessly traversing a multitude of genres while probing the deeper parts of the human psyche, Melbourne’s On Diamond return with intriguing new single ‘Candle‘. The band broke barriers with their eponymous 2019 debut, featuring the head-turning singles ‘How‘, ‘PoisonBlood‘, and ‘Light‘; their genre-defying sound garnering instant success. Now, the beloved quintet are back and excited to reveal their next alt-pop oddity in the introspective mantra that is ‘Candle‘.
Out now via Eastmint Records, ‘Candle‘ is the first we’ve heard from the band since their critically acclaimed self-titled album earned nominations for The Australian Music Prize and Music Victoria Awards’ Best Album and landed Album Of The Week on RRR, PBS and 4ZZZ. Without skipping a beat, the band’s new single continues with the same impressive momentum, opening with an eerie atmospheric loftiness before breaking into a punchy crescendo of clanging cymbals, psychedelic, reverb-drenched guitar riffs and densely layered ethereal vocals.
