Traversing a multitude of genres, Naarm/Melbourne-based quintet On Diamond take an anomalous look at alternative pop. Their sound relies on an interactive group dynamic, and is inspired by folk, noise, rock, pop, jazz and improvised music.
On Diamond’s output has seen the band attract critical acclaim - their 2019 self-titled debut album (Eastmint Records) was lauded as one of the year’s finest, resulting in nominations for The Australian Music Prize and Music Victoria Awards’ Best Album, as well as receiving Album Of The Week on 4ZZZ, Triple R and PBS, and being included in PBS’ Top Ten Albums of 2019.
In 2020, the band marked their eponymous album’s 1st anniversary by releasing a four track remix collab with HellosQuare Recordings. ‘Remixes’ features reimaginings of tracks by band members Salvo, Pascoe and Moles, as well as HellosQuare's founder, experimental artist Shoeb Ahmad.
Shortly following this, On Diamond released their latest single Candle.
They are currently working on their second album.
