Perpetual Surrender


Written by: Abbie Gobeli

Canada has unleashed a mad fury of great electronic records recently from natives Austra, Doldrums, and Crystal Castles. Toronto quartet Diana with their prior experience amongst the Canadian music scene will no doubt join the ranks of these fine artists with their stellar debut album, Perpetual Surrender released via Jagjaguwar on August 20th.

Blissful hooks coat the permeable dance-pop walls set up from the beginning track, “Foreign Installation.” Carmen Elle’s silken vocals round out the body of Perpetual Surrender enunciating each track including “New House” with emotional impact of anticipation and chances which fades in a cascade of vocals and white noise.


Jazzy ruptures of saxaphone infiltrate the succulent soundscape crafted by members Kieran Adams, Joesph Shabason, and Paul Mathew who all participated in jazz studies at the University of Toronto.  Adding brass instrumentation is becoming a trend in music as of late but Diana knows how to properly blends jazz and dream pop synth to enhance their musical structure. “Born Again” is sufficient evidence for this mixture.

Diana is currently touring with Austra and will be stopping through on September 1st at the Triple Rock Social Club.
