Acres of Diamonds makes indie music with a supernal woof, casting songs in golds in greys.
We're a slow moving ship.
In the midst of recording a new album, one of our principal songwriters left the band to start a new project. We kept recording, at Miner Street Studios with Jon Low, and in our newly built all analog home studio. Animal Trust is the result of that transition.
Lately, we've been inspired by fussy tone and vibe. We make each other laugh a lot.
From here on out, we'll be releasing material digitally in three song bursts roughly every six months. We hope you'll listen.
"A pretty gorgeous, brooding affair." - Philebrity
"Philly sextet Acres of Diamonds seems the product of a bygone era.
The vulnerability of its self-titled EP, released last summer on Bandcamp, can be chilling; its swell-to-hope crescendos, breathtaking. It might not be fashionable, but that's not the point; when was the last time you heard music this honest?" -Citypaper
