Montreal’s Diamond Bones couple the dreamy elements of shoegazey pop with raw emotion. They call themselves a “tribal dream pop trio” and the description suits them well, as they combine claps with a woozy sadness that signals the end of summer. The music selection available online is small, in part because the group has spent August working on their debut album, but previews suggest listeners can expect a soft and smoky ambience. Comprised of Isabelle Banos, Michelle Bensimon and Lana Cooney, Diamond Bones provides lush soundscapes easily exemplified in their debut track, “Home Is Where.” The band is a little bit like Toronto’s Diana, but with slightly less 80’s midtones and pop sensibilities. A dreamy performance should be expected.
