Diamond Rings (aka John O'Regan) is currently on tour in America. Apparently he was one of the founding members of my favorite Thomas Hardy-referenced band, The D'Urbervilles. ...
Her setup is a Mac with some sort of beat control box that had moving red light indicators. I didn't know her music, but I'm pretty sure she sang "Evolved" and "Voices," both songs can be heard on her Soundcloud.
Their brief 30-minute set was pretty much like last time, they did their new single "Dark Again", first single "Treehouse", and their cover of Underworld's "Born Slippy." The set closer was an extra-long rendition of "Moves."
Diamond Rings (John O'Regan) brought a full touring band with him to the 7th Street Entry. They were all dressed in black tank-tops and sported shades and cap. Even though it was Halloween weekend, they still managed to look over the top b-boy styling.
The report I got was Diamond Rings was very engaged with the audience and they played songs off the new album. Their encore was their very first single, "All Yr Songs." Diamond Rings explained that the song was "the one that started it all."
Please take five minutes to listen to our thoughts post-show. Song of the show is "All Yr Songs."
Diamond Ring is currently on tour in support of Free Dimensional, which just came out this week, October 22nd. On tour with them is Gold Fields, in support of their EP, Dark Again. Both releases can be found on Astralwerks Records.
