with music from Jacob Diamond
Alt-folk oddity Jacob Diamond sings bold songs about love and death. After years in Perth’s songwriting underground, Diamond has recently emerged as one of the foremost singer-songwriters in the west, furnished with huge melodies and incisive lyrics. His intricate, genre-bent bangers take all the best bits from boxes of 60s compilation CDs, memories of a crowded Catholic childhood, Les Miserables and one reckless detour into jazz-study. Far from being as confusing as it sounds, his work has earned him first prize in The Big Splash band competition, multiple WAM Awards, and much acclaim for his debut album Goodbye Gondwana released in 2018.
