Diamond Thug are a rare breakout success story from the South African music scene.
An exceptionally talented group, their 12 track debut album 'Apastron' landed back in April, a series of darkly delicious dream pop hymns.
Stylistically reminiscent of Daughter or even elements of Beach House, they soared to international acclaim.
Garnering millions of streams and a genuine global audience, Diamond Thug were able to watch their music connect with countless new souls.
New single 'The Woods' adds a fresh chapter to their story, and it finds the South African group tracing new paths to follow.
Shrouded in melancholy while remaining hopelessly beautiful, it's an evocative return from a band with incredible promise.
The band’s frontwoman Chantel explains:
“‘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.”
Tune in now.
'The Woods' will be released on October 18th.
