Ahead of the release of their boundary-pushing EP on Friday, Diamond Construct – the young act from regional New South Wales who have taken Australia by storm – have been blown away by the response to the creative risks they took.
“We feel as though we’ve achieved something totally new for us in DCX2 by the response so far with ‘Psychosis'”, said vocalist Kynan Groundwater, “but we also feel that our fans have familiarised themselves with the sounds they’ve heard on the self-titled within that. Everyone has been so positive in their outlook towards us moving forward with this and we are over the moon with how it’s going.”
Groundwater admits that while there have been some major pushes to incorporate more sounds into their new EP, the band will never lose the desire for a seriously heavy song. “In saying that our new single ‘Enigma’ is one of the heaviest, if not our heaviest song, to date. It’s what the lyrics called for. The song is about sexual abuse and the total emotional strain on the victims and their close family and friends endure when this sadly happens. We won’t stand by and let this happen. ‘Enigma’ is a rally to defend your loved ones. The song is a champion for the victims and we feel like almost everyone can identify with the themes that we bring to the table here.”
