Vancouver-based band Diamond Dancer is comprised of long-time friends and lovers who have traded in their dysfunctional hardcore punk rock past for twinkly guitar hooks, layered synths, and heartfelt vocals.

Biography

Pop/alt/shoegazers Diamond Dancer release music exclusively on Sizzle Teen Records. Within the first two months of playing shows, Diamond Dancer were featured in Beatroute and VanMusic.ca, and were selected as a top pick in the Georgia Straight‘s instant playlist. This propelled the band to be selected to participate in CITR 101.9 FM‘s SHiNDiG competition. The band’s debut EP, Will You? has been highly regarded by blogs worldwide, mainly in the U.S., U.K./Europe and Canada.

Diamond Dancer followed this up with the release of their video for “Sleeping In Mount Pleasant” (the band’s most popular song to date) as well as a live 2-song single titled “Main Street Kids” which was recorded during their set for SHiNDiG.

In January 2012, Diamond Dancer aligned with emerging Vancouver indie label Sizzle Teen Records, and is currently writing their full-length album, due out in early 2013.

Lyrics

Bellis Fair

Written By: Fudalewski / Wagner / Heggen

this morning feels like i'm unraveling
i got your call your voice was so subtle
and i'm late for work again
the train takes me through the city
outside my door i see some kids laughing
i wonder how this could have happened?
in such a small amount of time
that sometimes feels like nothing

in between these pages i....
in between these lines i try...
so i found the photos that we took
at bellis fair's old photo booth

your eyes start wandering
every time we walk past it
you've never asked for anything
unless you see those pictures

in between these pages i....
in between these lines i try...
so i found the photos that we took
at bellis fair's old photo booth

Long Distance Relationships Rarely Work Out

Written By: Fudalewski / Wagner / Heggen

and all that the spring would bring
a time for the loveless parades
with rings on their fingers
and holding on

i'm gonna break this time
my kindness is weakness in the light of your eyes
the difficulty lies
in the reasons why
