Track of the day #688: Diamond Thug – Backpush

Diamond Thug - BackpushSouth African alternative-pop band Diamond Thug recently returned with their latest single ‘Backpush‘! It’s a bass-driven track with powerful, smooth vocals contrasting the pulsing bassline perfectly. ‘Backpush’ sees the band propel their unique take on atmospheric, dream-pop forward even further on this foot-tapper.

Speaking of the track, Diamond Thug have said: “’Backpush’ is a song about feeling stuck in a self-destructive cycle of one’s own mistakes and self-doubt. It’s about staring at the sun in the depth of winter, coming to terms with one’s imperfection and opting for a more playful attitude in accepting that we habitually fuck up and may continue to do so but that’s part of human nature. We make mistakes. This song is a big release of the pent up frustration of feeling stuck. Sonically it throws back to the 2000s pop-punk we grew up listening to.”
