It’s getting pretty sultry around here. The evenings are long and the heat is hanging in the air. Just when we were looking for a soundtrack to this calm, sticky atmosphere, along comes Lightning Dust. Their new track ‘Diamond’ seems to capture the essence of these summer nights. Taken from their forthcoming album FANTASY (Jagjaguwar), Lightning Dust have created a track that provides just the right balance of pining melancholy and optimism coupled with a delicate refrain guaranteed to stick in your head for days. Basically, ‘Diamond’ sounds like Prinzhorn Dance School having a slow dance with Fleetwood Mac, which is a beautiful thing.
