Diana Radar’s new single builds, tornado like, twisting from a proto-post-punk opening into a forceful, grinding, garage back-end, creating a single that’s loaded with grit, ‘realness’ and emotion.
Diana Radar’s new sound follows a twelve month hiatus and major line-up change. In that time the four piece wrote an albums worth of material between their Carlton share house and Bakehouse Studios in Richmond.
The songs were pre-produced at an aunt’s seldom used beach house in Anglesea before being tracked at Sing Sing Studios Richmond where the engineering and co-production was lead by Lachlan Wooden (Eddy Current Suppression Ring – Primary Colours, Archie Roach – Journey).
The final songs were mastered by Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring). The music video was directed by Melbourne music photographer Jay Hynes and was shot back at the band’s Carlton share house, taking the project full circle.
For now, here’s a preview of the clip:
Diana Radar are back playing live and will be touring in 2018.
