Diamond Youth was introduced to me by my friend Megan. When I got a copy of their first release ,”Don’t Lose Your Cool.” it was not as I expected. It was pretty poppy in the same vein as Samiam and Jimmy Eat World. I really couldn’t stop listening to that first album. It was just too damn catchy.
A couple of weeks later I found out that Top Shelf Records was doing a pre-order for their next release so I decided to give it a chance. Today, I received my copies of the new album,”Orange”. There’s nothing else to say but it’s good. This band is destined to blow up.
Am I too old to like this band? Definitely. We’ll just have to chalk this one up as a guilty pleasure.
The orange theme is definitely seen in the dust jacket (left) and the insert.
Here is the reverse side of the dust jacket and insert.
Translucent orange out of 300 and opaque orange out of 500.
Go get your copy here. It’s definitely worth it.
