NEWS: DIANA unveil new song ‘What You Get’

Canadian dreampop trio DIANA are now up to release their sophomore effort Familiar Touch. Released on 18th November via Culvert/Ils/Caroline, produced after, as Carmen Elle puts it, “learning to be a band.”  It’s set to retain the luscious atmosphere of their debut LP Perpetual Surrender while leaning more towards vintage pop tones.

Having already shared ‘Confession’ and ‘Slipping Away,’ the group have now unveiled a new track, ‘What You Get.’  It’s a slow burner but one that gradually builds up its drum machines and synthesisers into a pulsating pop gem.  Speaking of the track, Kieran Adams says: “I started writing ‘What You Get’ after a conversation Carmen and I had on a ferry from Ireland to Wales towards the end of touring Perpetual Surrender.  She told me she was thinking about the idea of deservedness i.e. people’s expectations around what their efforts or intentions might yield.  On the post-ferry van ride I made a very basic track in Ableton and came up with the chorus for the song.”  Listen below.
