Diamond Thug Essentials

Cape Town four-piece Diamond Thug has always possessed an ability to sonically shape-shift. Danilo Queiros (bass and synth), Adrian Culhane (guitar and synth) and Ted Buxton (drums) fuse elements of folk, pop, electronic music and psych rock—a foundation that allows Chantel Van T (vocals) to explore her vast, ethereal range. Their 2018 debut album, Apastron, is a wistful 12-track exploration of love and loss in the depths of space, and the pinnacle in a career that has continually evolved in pursuit of a novel sound.
