TDA press shotSouthampton duo The Diamond Age is a newly formed project from Matt Canning and Bilu Acharjee. Specializing in propulsive dream-pop, the band fuse together elements of indie, shoe-gaze and kraut-rock to create music with immediacy and melody at its heart, drawing influences from The Smiths, The Drums * LCD Soundsystem to a name a few.
