Sonically, Glass Diamonds is a mix of influences – psychedelic, old pop and disco. The production relies heavily on tape echoes, warm filters and sweeping phasers. The analogue production and DIY aesthetic lends the band a slightly wonky, yet warm sound, free from studio polish.
The band was born from an experiment in a studio in Melbourne late one night in 2016. Producer Jaymes Brown was playing with an old reel-to-reel tape machine, a drum machine and a synthesiser. A simple loop soon turned into a jam, layered with saturated drums, echoey, filtered synths and disco bass. Later, with the help of vocalist Tegan Thorogood, that jam turned into a collection of songs.
A couple of months of writing passed and before the duo knew it, they had an album's worth of material together. With the addition of bassist James Trewenack, what had started as a simple experiment soon morphed into a fully blown band.
