The Diamond Sea, Second Move Album Review


Second Move is the debut album from Leeds based trio The Diamond Sea. The groups name is taken from a Sonic Youth track of the same name, but there is where any similarities end. Although an air of nostalgia is woven inextricably within the fabric of Second Move it is more of a sensibility than a specific reference point. 'Dream Pop' is where they may see the sound of the band so as to affiliate themselves with a genre but after hearing the debut you certainly wouldn't be inclined to put them with the likes of The Cocteaus, Sigur Ros, Felt or even School Of Seven Bells.

The opener 'Stealing' is easy on the ear, has some inoffensive harmonies set to jangly guitar chords and soft vocalisation. It is let down by the apathy in the production and the wanting lyrics.............."We'll fly away to Spain and steal a Jaguar, Sit on a beach drink Champagne and eat caviar."
