WATCH // DIANA Premieres Official Music Video For “Perpetual Surrender” On Vevo, Announces Official Four Tet Remix With Deluxe Pre-Order

We have a rather trippy video premiere for DIANA‘s title track off their new album, Perpetual Surrender out August 20th.

The video, directed by artist Jesse Yules, utilized folded paintings of DIANA’s lead singer, Carmen Elle. On the paintings, Jesse said, “I used images with a strong, singular light source, that cast a shadow on one side of the figure. I tried to illustrate the idea of a personality with different sides, by mirroring and animating the lit side of the portrait, then contrasting that by mirroring the shadow side of the portrait.” Watch the beautiful and mesmerizing video ABOVE.

MEET DIANA – Jagjaguwar’s Newest Signee, Debut Album Out in August With “Born Again” Video Ready For Watching Today

MEET DIANA, Jagjaguwar’s newest band, featuring Joseph Shabason, Kieran Adams, Carmen Elle, and Paul Mathew. You will recognize members from a number of Canadian bands (The Hidden Cameras, Destroyer, Bonjay). Today we are treated to the first official video for Diana’s “Born Again.” Watch above or at Gorilla vs. Bear.

“DIANA‘s beautiful, basically flawless soft-focus dance-pop dream “Born Again” finally gets some appropriate visuals….”GVB

“Born Again” is a single off the band’s self-titled debut, out officially on August 20 in the US / 19 in Europe. Full of lush sounds and melodic hooks, the songs of DIANA aim to entice the listener into a world that is deeper than its surface may let on. Beneath the smooth and silky surface often lies a tightened fist, a Factory Records intensity that pushes things forward. You’ll find the track listing and album artwork below!

Finally! See DIANA live. They are off to Europe next week for handful of dates. Then, it’s back on the road again in late August; this time in support of Austra!
