Diamond Youth Delight in Hard-Edged Power-Pop on New LP ‘Nothing Matters’

The group will be promoting the LP on the road this spring

Diamond Youth’s fourth release (but first official LP) Nothing Matters is full of muttering guitars and the boiling clamor of brittle distortion. Although the members of Diamond Youth are spread out across the U.S. from Baltimore to Chicago, the new full-length showcases that geographical distance is not an issue. Drawing influences from Queens of The Stone Age to Weezer, the album’s title track (as well as other album standouts “No Control” and “Thought I had It Right”) features upbeat hooks and rough-around-the-edges fuzz that invigorates like classic alternative rock.

Stream Nothing Matters below — out May 19 on Topshelf Records, and currently available for pre-order— and check the band out on tour this spring and summer.
