While it may seem daring to put “diamond” into the name of your band, the amount of sparkle emitted by this Montreal duo makes it completely understandable. From janky glitch-pop drums to jangly guitars on the verge of explosion, Montréal’s Diamond Day reshape shoegaze into their hazy electro dreamworld. Led by Rosier’s Béatrix Méthé and Grammy-nominated multi-instrumentalist, Quinn Bachand, the project began when Quinn moved to Boston as a teenager. The pair discovered an undeniable synergy after meeting at a music festival. Every weekend, Quinn would hop on a Montréal-bound Greyhound to write, record and develop songs in Béatrix’s Plateau apartment. Raised in Québec’s rural music tradition, Méthé’s magnetic vocals, catchy hooks and stream-of-consciousness lyrics became the band’s razor-sharp focus, cutting through Bachand’s billowing noise-pop soundscapes.
