Want a dose of dance rock influenced bubblegum punk? Hehe, the Baltimore based quartet Diamond Youth sound like a more polished and melodic The Hives in some moments and in others, like a mix of Everclear and Feeder on their new "Shake" EP.
Think Prince on acid, jamming with Queens of the stone age and you´ll get Diamond Youth´s song "Can´t shake the feeling". The opening track "Red water" is irresistable with a chorus that would make Tom Cochrane proud, I get the feeling the catchy "Warm scene" belong on the MTV awards to set the stage on fire. This is a crazy band.
The band has released 3 more EP´s where "Orange" from 2013 is their latest.
