Check out the remix here:
DIANA is the musical partnership of Joseph Shabason (Destroyer) and Kieran Adams, brought together in an effort to satisfy an urge to create deft arrangements using their trained backgrounds (they met studying music in university) and set them against woozy synth driven soul pop backdrops. Vocalist Carmen Elle’s addition, with her lush and thoughtful interpretations, took things to the next level. Their sound has all the allure of the Roxy Music and Sade, but their homage to the 80s begins and ends there. The past 30 years have pushed the boundaries in pop music and DIANA have been raised on this creative surge. Their new self-titled album, recorded at Boombox Studio with Roger Leavens, is set for release in 2013. It’s not about sounding like New Order; it’s about being the new order.
“Born Again’ skitters with lo-fi drama while simultaneously delivering a crisp neon 80s vibe that would fit perfectly in a slow motion montage of lovers driving down the 10W at sunset in an imaginary John Hughes/Michael Mann movie.” – KCRW
“Toronto band DIANA does some light, intergalactic disco pop on “Born Again.” The songs splits the difference between headphone candy, psychedelic waves and breezy dancefloor-ready tact.” – RCRD LBL
