South Africa’s Diamond Thug return today with their latest track, ‘The Woods’. It’s dark, moody and alluring. The monotonous bassline throughout never lets up but is complimented by fuzzy, more colourful synth use and dreamy vocals. ‘The Woods’ is the first of selection of singles which are set for release over the remainder of 2019 and the beginning of 2020.
Speaking of the track, Diamond Thug’s front-woman Chantel has said: “‘The Woods’ is about being lost in a dense forest of emotional isolation, while on a walk through the wilderness. We wrote a scratch of the song in a practice room in London and then recorded it across continents, while I was in the French Alps and the band was back in Cape Town.”
