Imagine Our Love
Exclusive Album Audio Streams
Lavender Diamond release their debut album, Imagine Our Love, in the UK on Rough Trade Records on May 7th - an album comprised of pristine pocket symphonies that combine the best of the early '70s Brit-folk boom with gorgeous arrangements and an overwhelming sense of sheer heartbroken wonder.
Lavender Diamond is Becky Stark and her band. A one time flatmate of Jenny Lewis and long time friend of Devendra Banhart, with whom she's shared a couple of split vinyl singles in the US. Becky grew up in rural Maryland and first experienced music at church. But for the Starks, music was a religion of it's own too.
Inspired as a teenager by the nearby Washington DC punk community, Becky realised that she could make music for herself. She also began to get involved in performing in musical theatre round this time too. Then she moved to Rhode Island to study, hanging out at Fort Thunder, a communal space that hosted shows from the city’s burgeoning noise scene, including the legendary Lightning Bolt. This was a significant catalyst in the development of what was to become Lavender Diamond.
