Diamond Family Archive


Now old favourites at the Leigh Folk Festival, the Diamond Family Archive is an English lo-fi, psych-folk, multi-instrumentalist duo. Live, they craft a mesmeric live-show from drums, acoustic guitars, lots of FX pedals, keyboards set to drone, tape delay, loops and bellows, bows, harmonicas, cosmic harps, toys and broken cymbals. All coming together to create music which holds echoes of post-rock, traditional folk, spiritual soul music, psychedelic rock and lo-fi. Foot-stomping, finger-picking, hollering vs pin-drop hush – fragile, lazy grace. In the last year alone The Diamond Family Archive have played shows in Belgium, Germany, Holland, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. ‘The atmosphere builds gradually, the sound rising and falling as the duo coax pulsing beats and a tidal ebb and flow of music. The natural world is at the heart of The Diamond Family sound and their songs shift like the seasons’. – Zero Tolerance. ‘This mesmerising duo play a hybrid of traditional folk wrapped in melancholic psychedelic soundscapes that paint picturesque portraits of the English countryside’. – Avenoctum
