Free MP3: Diamond Youth's "Orange" — Song of the Day

Share on Tumblr

Diamond Youth
may not be the kind of band who can easily fall into one specific genre, but the title-track off their luminous new album, Orange, didn't have any trouble falling into categories.

"'Orange' was the working title for this song from the very beginning," says guitarist Sam Trapkin. "It was one of those color association kind of things, where it just felt like orange. Then it became the idea for the record. Kind of like how you'd name a record if you were in kindergarten."

Integrating gritty guitar riffs, static-laced vocal parts, sporadic percussion and punchy keys, this is a track that rings reminiscent of garage rock and punk, indie and lo-fi. It shines in its ability to remain rough-around-the-edges while never losing the underlying brightness its title suggests, and it will certainly leave you coming back for a few more spins.

Stream it above, grab it for free, and pick up Orange when it drops February 5 via Topshelf Records.
