The Diamond Family Archive

The Diamond Family Archive

Profile:
The Diamond Family Archive craft a mesmeric live-show from drums and acoustic guitars, lots of FX pedals, keyboards set to drone, tape delay, loops and bellows, bows, toys and broken cymbals. All coming together to create music which holds echoes of post-rock, traditional folk, spiritual soul music, psychedelic rock and lo-fi.
…haunting, fragile, sublime lo-fi melancholia, atmospheric, lazy grace…some of the words used to describe The Diamond Family Archive. Strange and tender songs; personal and pastoral themes; mixed with sleepy-eyed awe creating intense, spectral folk with a distinctly British sound.

The Diamond Family Archive are:
Laurence Collyer - Vocals, guitar, pedals, organ, shruti box, cosmic harp, harmonica and cassette recorder.
Peter Collis - Drums & percussion, effects, keyboards & melodeon.
